    Converting minutes, seconds and tenths of seconds into seconds

    Hi guys,

    I've searched the net and can't find an answer to my problem.

    Basically I want to change 1 minute 24 seconds and 5 tenths into a seconds number.

    So basically it would come out as 84.50 seconds.

    Can anyone help me ?

    Re: Converting minutes, seconds and tenths of seconds into seconds

    is "1 minute 24 seconds and 5 tenths" an actual time value (eg 0:01:02.5) or is it a text string ?

    if the former... it's a simple case of:

    where A1 holds original time value...

    if however it is a text string then we'd need to know more regards other (potential) variants of the string - could you perhaps post an example ?
