    convert hours:minutes to number of minutes (Excel 2000)

    Hello

    I import data into Excel from another program. Durations look like this: 14:17. That would be 14 hours and 17 minutes.
    Is there a way to convert that (14:17) to 857 (i.e. the total number of minutes for that duration)?

    What a huge help this would be!!

    Thanks

    If A1 contains the time, then you can use this formula:

    <pre>=A1*1440
    </pre>


    Format the cell containing that formula as a number (Excel will default it to Time). The 1440 in the above is the number of minutes in a day (24*60).
