Hi

I've looked everywhere but can't seem to find anything similar, as it's not really a convert time to seconds problem - its a convert time to time problem???

Could someone please help with the above conversion?

As an example 2.08.3 should be converted to 128.3 seconds.

I'm using Excel 2007.

Thanks in advance.

Remove leading & trailing spaces
Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().

I'm assuming that 2.08.03 is a text value, If so, try this

=LEFT(A1,FIND(".",A1))*60+REPLACE(A1,1,FIND(".",A1),"")

Hi

Another option:

=0+TEXT(SUBSTITUTE(A1,".",":",1),"")
For the sample data/result given that might need to be
=0+TEXT(SUBSTITUTE(A1,".",":",1),".0")
