Buenos días, estoy intentando "redondear" los segundos pero sin que se cambie los minutos en un formato HH:MM:SS. Exemplo: 13:27:33 que aparezca solamente 13:27:00

Hi, try this formula then format result as time.
=MROUND(A1,"0:01")

Quale formula si può usare per arrotondare al quarto d'ora, considerando che, per l'orario d'ingresso il minuto 15/30/45/00 deve essere successivo al minuto della timbratura mentre per l'uscita deve accadere esattamente il contrario?

Esempio:
ingresso 7:42 -> 7:45
uscita 12:18 -> 12:15

Hi, FREDY, you can try this formula
=IF(MINUTE(A3)<15,MROUND(A3,"1:00"),IF(MINUTE(A3)<45,MROUND(A3,"0:30"),MROUND(A3,"1:00")))
A3 is the cell that contains the time.

Thank you for posting a way to round the time down to the nearest hour with the Floor function! It's the only thing that actually worked!

Hi,

I’m trying to round down over time hours. Everything should be in down to the hour examples
1:56 – 1:00
2:17 – 2:00

I’m using floor currently but have come to a little problem. When it is exactly on the hour like 1:00, 2:00, 3:00, it rounds down to 0:00, 1:00, 2:00 but should stay at respective hours. Any possible solution?

Thanks!

Sorry for reply you too late, I did not found the direct formula to solve your problem, but you can add 1:00 into a cell, and then use =FLOOR(A2,1/24)-the cell contains 1:00 to get the correct answer.
