I have a pivot table which pulls out the time wasted by each employee in seconds.... Is there a way in which i can have the format changed in the pivot in such a way that the data can be shown in minutes and seconds

Hi ashok_theagarajan

What do you mean by the time in seconds? Is it excel time displayed in seconds or is it an integer with the number of seconds?

Kind regards
PGC

Everybody needs help in this life. :wink: :wink: :wink:

Why don't you tell us the problem in your title and not just "Need some help"

You could get more feedback if you told us what is the problem.

Click a cell in the data area.

On the PivotTable toolbar, click Field Settings.

Click the correct format if it is listed?

In the Category list, click the format category you want.

Select the options you want for the format, and then click OK twice.

If the report has more than one data field (data field: A field from a source list, table, or database that contains data that is summarized in a PivotTable report or PivotChart report. A data field usually contains numeric data, such as statistics or sales amounts.), repeat these steps for each one!

Hi ashok_theagarajan

If you have 1230 and you want it displayed as 20.30 it means that you have seconds not as excel time but as a number and so it is not possible to display it the way you want.

To solve your problem you have to do the following:

- Create a calculated field:
Right-click on the Pivot Table, choose Formulas>Calculated Field.
Create a new field with the formula = < Your time field as a number > / 86400. This will create a new field with the values equivalent to your original values but in excel time.

- After the field is created you can hide your original field.

- Finally right-click on the new field, Field Settings>Number and choose a format, like hh:mm:ss.

Hope it was clear
