    since excel stores time as fractions of a day, divide your number by the number of seconds in a day (86,400) and format the formula cell to your liking (ie [h]:mm:ss)

    =A1/86400

    Custom format the formula cell as [hh]:mm:ss

    Try:

    =A1/86400

    where A1 stores the number of seconds. Then format the cell with the custom format "hh:mm:ss."

    Hope this helps!

    The numbers don't lie, but sometimes they don't tell the whole truth.
