I have about 2800 lines of data that haave a time stamp attached in the format

<TABLE style="WIDTH: 48pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=64 border=0 x:str><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 48pt" width=64><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 12.75pt" height=17><TD class=xl24 style="BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; WIDTH: 48pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; HEIGHT: 12.75pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" align=right width=64 height=17 x:num="0.68048611111111112">16:19:54</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
The cells are formatted as "custom" and hh:mm:ss. Unfortunately, I need the hours and minutes in separate columns for calculations. I am trying to set up a calculation to show the solar angles at different times during the day and at any day of the year so need a column of hours and a column of minutes.

As you can understand I can't change 2800 lines of data one by one.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Does this help? You can fill down the formulas.

Top work VoG - that works perfectly. Saved me an age there. :biggrin:

I'm trying to model a solar panel system for my honours project so it's quite likely I'll be on here a lot.

All the best.
