Easy Time Conversion

I am using a sheet that calculates scores based on time. The sheet requires the time to be in a decimal format, i.e 13.51

However, the database I pull the info from uses this format: 13:51

Is there a quick way I can convert the numbers? I have tried to relace the : with a . but it changes the cell formatting.

Thanks in Advance

You could convert in another column, e.g. if you have 13:51 in A1 then use this formula in B1

=TEXT(A1,"hh.mm")+0

and format B1 as a number

In your example, is 13.51 13 hrs and 51 minutes or 13.51 hrs??
