In the digital age, where data is king, effectively managing and recording time-related information is crucial. By effectively using timestamps in Excel, you can easily track when data entries are made or modified, serving as a cornerstone in tasks like project management, record keeping, and data analysis.
Recently I was asked how to subtract time in Excel (time difference) or how to calculate the number of hours between two points in time on different days. Since this was in a reader comment, I gave a brief answer that requires a fuller account here.
I had a reader comment on my last post about how to extract time from a date-time number using the MOD function. Simple really. The syntax is MOD(number,divisor).

Whether you’re tracking work hours, scheduling events, or analyzing time-based data, efficiently converting and understanding these time values is crucial.
