    Using the "NOW" command

    Is there any way for the =NOW() command (entered by using the Ctrl+Shift+; [semicolon] keystrokes) to display the seconds. It has only been displaying minutes for me??

    I'd like to do some race timing and that command would certainly come in handy when someone comes across the finish line -- then just do a little math in an adjacent cell for elapsed time and easily generate a list of the entire racing field.

    Change the cell format to hh:mm:ss
    Hope that helps.

    @royUK, even with the number format set to display seconds the short cut only inserts hours and minutes. So seconds will alway be :00

    Correct, and that's just the problem — no seconds — just comes up with 00.00.
