    Hello:

    I want to calculate a throughput. Ex. 1.59MB took 1:02 (mm:ss) to transfer.

    A1=1.59 A2=1:02 (mm:ss)
    A3 should be 1.54(rounded)(mm:ss)

    Simple division, except the Text value in A2 does not work? I can take (1.59/62)*60 to calc MB/min. I need to reference the previous cell instead of the number 62.

    Do I need to convert to seconds (and how) then divide, and then what format do I use?

    Thanks for your consideration..

    Is this a repost?

    What is 62? Which is the previous cell?

    What are you trying to determine: amount transfered per second or per minute?

    in A3 put =A1/(A2*86400)*60
    but this will give the answer 1.53870967741935
    which formatted as number to 2 decimals 1.54

    is this what you need?

    Yes this is a repost.
    I am looking for MB/min.
    The 62 is one min, 2 seconds in seconds.

    The A1/(A2*86400)*60 formula works great.

    Thanks all.
