I have a date and time field currently to the following format

Custom [$-10409]h:mm which shows me the following 5:59.
When I click in the cell it reads 09/11/2011 05:59:24

When I convert the format to general its 40856.24958 , what formula can I use to extract the time 05:59:24. I am then trying to compare two times.

Hi

The time is the decimal part of the datetime number.

Use, for ex.:

=Mod(A1,1)
