If A1 contains 1:31:15 what technique can be used to capture just the seconds without the hours and minutes?

Many thanks,

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Hi Tom,

How 'bout

=TEXT(A1,"ss")

In addition, you should also be able to format cell A1 to just display the seconds part by entering a Custom format of "ss".
