Hello,

My first post! I am trying to convert spreadsheet from UTC time and date to EST. My formulas for Column C is =MOD(B13-(5/24),1). But for the first 4 rows the time does not convert to 11/11/2016 as it should be. Another way I tried was =B13 -"05:00:00" which also converts the time but not the date. Can anyone help?

DateTimeEST

11/12/2016 00:54:0919:54:09

11/12/201600:57:0119:57:01

Welcome to the forum.

I think this is what you're after. I have formatted columns C and D as a Custom format (m/d/yyyy h:mm:ss).

I custom formatted by C column with mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss and my results are: 09/26/2133 01:47:14, I am doing something wrong and then C is formatted =A2+B2. I've got a couple of Mr. Excel books that I'm checking but still don't see what I am doing wrong.

I think I have it figured out- Both Column A & B show Date and Time so that portion is already calculated - so I just needed the second formula and it is now correct! thanks again for your assistance.

Dates and times in Excel present challenges. It's hard to know sometimes just what is in the cell. I'm glad you worked it out.
