    Hour minute second issue

    Hi folks,
    I have a data file that is formatted as Hour:minute:second except the second is 00 for all entries. The data was logged 60 times for each minute ie. has 60 data points for each minute. I have tried the format cell option for time with no luck and could use some help. This is what it looks like now. I need the seconds to graph this. Thanks in advance for any and all help and have a great day.

    Select one of the cells in col A, and look in the formula bar. If there are no seconds shown, they aren't there.

    Re: Hour minute second issue

    Usually, time is just a number format applied to a decimal number (read this to understand how Excel stores date/time information as serial numbers: http://www.cpearson.com/Excel/datetime.htm ). The other common format is to see time stored as a text string (does not appear to be the case here).

    It can be difficult to give specific help based on text in a post. A sample workbook would be useful.

    My first reaction is that this will be a problem either with the number format code used to format the cell as time, or there is a problem with the underlying cell value. I would start debugging there.
