    I have a formula that calculates how much time has passed.

    a1 = 1:00 pm
    a2 = 1:37 pm
    a3 = 0:37

    What I want in a4, is a formula that divides a3 by 20 and rounds up.

    for example

    a4 = 2

    Thank you for helping me.

    =ROUND(A3*72,0)

    Note...

    72 = 1440 (minutes/day) divided by 20

    Thanks it worked. I just had to change the cell format to get it to work. Thank you

    Yes, it was related to the previous question but I did not know if I worded it properly.

    Yeah, I should have mentioned that! If you enter a formula with a reference to a cell that's formatted as a time value Excel applies the same format to the cell containing the formula. Sometimes it can be quite annoying.
