With the above formula =A1/24 to convert the time one by one is somewhat time-waste, but with the VBA code, you can convert a list of decimal time to hours and minutes at once.
1. Hold ALT button and press F11 on the keyboard to open a Microsoft Visual Basic for Application window.
2. Click Insert > Module, and copy the VBA into the module.
VBA: Convert decimal time to hours and minutes
Sub ConvertToTime() 'Updateby20140227 Dim Rng As Range Dim WorkRng As Range Dim xHours As Variant Dim xMin As Variant Dim xValue As Variant On Error Resume Next xTitleId = "KutoolsforExcel" Set WorkRng = Application.Selection Set WorkRng = Application.InputBox("Range", xTitleId, WorkRng.Address, Type:=8) For Each Rng In WorkRng xValue = Rng.Value xHours = VBA.Split(xValue, ".")(0) xMin = VBA.Split(xValue, ".")(1) * 60 Rng.Value = xHours & ":" & VBA.Left(xMin, 2) Next End Sub
3. Click Run button or press F5 to run the VBA, then a KutoolsforExcel dialog pops up for you to select a work range. See screenshot:
4. Click OK in the pop-up dialog, the selected range data has been converted to hours and minutes formatting. See screenshot:
Tip: With the above VBA code running, you will lost your original data, so you’d better copy and reserve them before the VBA running.
