Rounding time values

You may need to create a formula that rounds a time to a particular value. For example, you may need to enter

your company's time records rounded to the nearest 15 minutes. This section presents examples of various ways

The following formula rounds the time in cell A1 to the nearest minute:

=ROUND(A1*1440,0)/1440

The formula works by multiplying the time by 1440 (to get total minutes). This value is passed to the ROUND

function, and the result is divided by 1440. For example, if cell A1 contains 11:52:34, the formula returns

11:53:00.

The following formula resembles this example, except that it rounds the time in cell A1 to the nearest hour:
