Hi All,

I have a data dump which I feed into Excel and part of the report is in Time Format 00:00:00. In some of the cell the report shows as :04 I need to build something that will bring this back as 00:00:04.

Can someone please help as I have to go through 3k+ cells to re format.

Format the cell/cells to h:mm:ss.

Select the cell or range of cells --> Excel menubar --> Format --> Cells --> Number tab --> Custom --> in the Type option --> type 'h:mm:ss' without the quotes --> Click on OK.
