    I thought the formula for coverting DD:HH:mm:ss looked a little funky. I've been working with Excel for ages and i'm pretty good at getting it to do what I want but have a bit of trouble with data files generated by LANDH systems and need to convert to decimals. SInce I don't know python, my options are limited.

    This funky formula did not work for me. The syntax is not like formulae I have used before so I'm just not going to mess with this one. I'm guessing I have to buy something first? I already bought office, that should be sufficient.
