How to quickly add hours/minutes/second to date and time in Excel?

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/11

Excel date times are almost identical to OLE/COM automation date times (that used in many Windows applications).

Which means that dates are 1 unit apart, and:

  • Weeks = 7
  • Days = 1
  • Hours = 1/24
  • Minutes = 1/(24*60) or 1/1440
  • Seconds = 1/(24*60*60) or 1/86400

That way you can easily add one hour to a date/time value by adding 1/24.

macOS and Windows Excel Shortcut: Toggle absolute and relative references | Exceljet

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/04/20

Since I tend to forget the Mac shortcut (the Windows one feels like it is in my autonomic nervous system):

  • F4    Windows shortcut
  • ⌘T   Mac shortcut 
While editing a formula, this shortcut toggles cell references from relative to absolute, to partially absolute, back to relative again: A1 –> $A$1 –> A$1— > $A1 — > A1 It’s much faster and easier than typing $ characters manually.
To convert an existing formula, enter cell edit mode, place the cursor in or next to the reference you’d like to convert, then use the shortcut.
Note: in Excel 2016 for the Mac, you can also use fn + F4.
