    Post Working out the minutes...

    Hi all...

    At work our clocking in system uses a '100' unit for the minute calculation, I.E. 'Target Hours - 50.70'.
    I know to get the '70' back to proper minutes you just '60/100*70' which would give you 42 mins...

    My problem is if you do the same for; say 46 (part of 100) - 60/100*46 = 27.60. This isn't accurate in the seconds section...

    Is there a more accurate way of working out the minutes and seconds to 2 decimal points in this instant?

    Thanks for your time...

    Ahhh... isn't it the same? 60/100*46 = 27.60 ... 60/100 * 0.6 = 36 seconds... therefore 27 minutes, 36 seconds

    It is, but I wanted a formula to work it all out with the '.' mark in the way... Someone has told me... it's:

    =INT(A1)&"."&INT(MOD(A1,1)*60)&"."&ROUND(MOD(MOD(A1,1)*60,1)*60,0)

    If you are interested...

    Cheers

    Based on your last post it seems that you solved your issue on your own but you haven't marked your thread as SOLVED. I'll do that for you now but please keep in mind for your future threads that Rule #9 requires you to do that yourself. If your problem has not been solved you can use Thread Tools (located above your first post) and choose "Mark this thread as unsolved".
    Thanks.
