How do you convert a time in a cell to a number - example 16:25 to 1625; OR how do I remove the colon from the time?

Thanks, Jesse

You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

Welcome to the board!

You can eliminate the colon from view by custom formatting as hmm (instead of h:mm)

Thanks for the quick response, however....

Thanks for the quick response, that changed the view to reflect 1625 however....when I try to copy & paste special value to another cell one column over, it shows the time 16:25 as 0.684028...; I need it be 1625
