Converting time zone Results


I am looking for a macro to convert time from IST to CST. I have attached the spread sheet, in which sheet2 is having IST & Sheet1 is having CST.

I need a Macro to look at ColumnC, ColumnD & ColumnE of Sheet2 and paste the converted result in sheet1 as shown in the attached sheet. It need to look till the last cell of ColumnA every time I run this, as the data is not constant. If any of the cell in empty then it need to copy empty cell instead of negative values.

I have used the following formula for converting the time

Thanks in advance for all your help!!


Hi Everyone,

Im just new to this forum. My problem is I cannot convert a CST time zone to Manila Time. The data that I have to convert is in this format:

"12/15/2011 5:00:00 PM"

It is inside a SINGLE cell. Is there a way in excel that I can do this? Please help me. Thanks in advance.

Usng the following code. in VBA

Range("D2") = Now

This info later gets updated to a web page of LIVE racing results.

The proglem lies in that fact that the spreadsheet is run on many computers some of which are laptops.

If the used in Eastern time runs it at 9PM right now it would say 9pm. If some one in California were to look at 9:10 his time here would think the results are 10 minutes old when they are really 3 hours and 10 minute.

Is there some way to append the time zone to it, Or better yet, Always Convert it to Eastern Time.


Does anyone know how to determine the current time zone in Excel? - OR - How
to convert the time provided by the NOW() function to UTC?

I have a s.sheet that displays the current date and time for project
participants based all over the world. To do this i use the "=NOW()"
function and calculate the other project members time by adding or
subtracting an ofset. The problem is that if one of the other project
members opens the s.sheet (say in France) the calculations are wrong as NOW()
always returns their local time.

Hi, I'm trying to figure out if there is any easier way to convert a particular time zone (eg: EST Time → Mnla Time / EST Time → CST Time and the likes )

Right now I'm using this formula: (example scenario below )
Converting 12:00 am EST to Manila = TIME(IF(HOUR(A4),13+HOUR(A4),HOUR(A4)+13),MINUTE(A4),SECOND(A4))

I have attached a sample excel file for reference.


How do I get EXCEL to display a negative time using this formula (or another if it will work)? I am trying to create a time chart where my destination city is 14 hours behind my originating city. Depending upon the time of day, the destination city is sometimes still in the previous day but EXCEL won't show the time, it only shows #####################.

How do I convert a given date and time of a time zone (USA) to the date and time of another time zone (Asia)? For example, in one column there is the USA date and time ( 5/12/12 4:30AM). How do I convert this in a formula in another column if the (Asia) date and time zone is ahead by 16 hours?

I have a column with US phone numbers (all numerical, 10 digits). I would
like to have the State name in a column right next to the phone number, and
the Time Zone in the next column to the right.

I have the master Area Code, State, Time Zone data in any format needed: one
long string, range, VBA constant...

The obvious solution is to write a VBA that uses the 3 left-most digits and
scans the master area-code table to find a match. The only problem is that my
list of phone numbers has several 10,000 numbers and scanning the master area
code again and again will take hours...

Any advanced idea anyone?


Does anybody know how to convert the current date and time (e.g., Now) into
the date and time in (potentially) a different time zone?

For example, if the VBA code is running on a machine in the eastern time
zone or a machine in the western time zone I'd like to convert both times to
Greenwich mean time.



How to do Date + Time Zone conversion in Excel??

Hi Experts, I am seeking help to understand the way of doing Date/Time Zone conversion from one excel column to other column.

In brief, Say I have a Date/Time value in mm/dd/yyyy HH:MM format in column A1 which is actually a PST Time, now I need a formula to convert it to IST format in column B1 but the Date/Time format should remain same i.e. mm/dd/yyyy HH:MM

I am not at all good in Excel so thought of seeking some assistance here. I feel it’s a complicated task and if anyone can help me…it will be great and I will be thankful from the bottom of my heart.

Thanks again for sparing time to read my query.


Would anyone know how to do a formula to convert 1 time zone to another 1.

ie. you are given the time for EST - 04:51:38 and now you want something that converts thats to GMT time. So you need a formula in there that adds on 5 hours to show 09:51:38.


I have an excell fill which give me quote every second, and I was wondering if it is possible to change the time for every minute.

I mean that for every minute the low and the high should appear. I find the fct min and max that give me what I need but I can't manage to isolate each 1 minute zone.

I have attach my file, I hope that a solution exist.


Just a quick question, do you know what I could add to this time stamp formula:

=IF(D3>1, IF(E3 = "", NOW() + TIMEVALUE("12:00"), E3), "")

to make/convert the result to just the DATE without the time? Can't afford to use the Today in place of Now because it's for my time zones.


Is there a way to format a cell or range to offset the raw data by a specified number of hours. I have a column that is updating from external data. The column contains date and time. The date and time values are from a different timezone so the data is not correct in my timezone. The timezone is of no importance only the hour offset. Can the raw data be formated somehow to take in to account the difference in hours?

I know that I can convert in a differnt column, but that does not help since data is constantly updating and I would like to avoid a lot of code.

I would like to take fifty state abbreviations, divide into 4 times zones
each with each zone (with multiple states) having its own color. For example,
anytime Excel sees CA,NV,OR,WA it colors the cells red. If it sees TX, OK,
MO, AL, WI etc it colors the cells green. Yellow for east coast, etc. The
only way I could figure to do this was to convert the text to numbers then
use conditional formatting but didn't see a function that would work on state
abbreviations. Thank you

Is it possible to have excel convert the time automatically?
I keep a worksheet on Ebay items on which the list the
end-date/end-time in Pacific Standard Time. I need it in Eastern
Standard Time. I'd like to be able to enter their PST time in a cell
but have it appear in EST. If not automatically, how should I
compensate for hours only in another cell?
Thank you.

Thanks for any advice

Good morning!

I have a problem....i need an excel sheet that not only can tell me time around the world, but can also tell me when it's okay to contact people in different parts of the world, AND it needs to adjust for daylight savings time.


A friend lives in Germany. Another in Guam. Another in New York. Another in Hawaii. It's currently Pacific Daylight Savings Time in my time zone. I can only call any of them between 8AM and 8PM in their local time. My friend in hawaii will not be around until 6:30pm his time tonight and asks that i not call till then as the baby might wake up.

I'd need my sheet to be able to tell me what time it is in each of these places now, then tell me when it's okay to call them in general (after 8a), only converted to whatever time zone i'm currently in, and adjust both for daylight savings adherence (Hawaii does not adhere to any Daylight time adjustments) and then factor in if they want me to call at a certain time their time. I'd also like to know the latest i can call out to each person, adjusted to my own local time

lastly, if i travel, i'd like this to be smart enough to know based on what timezone i'm in.

this is pretty big, and might be beyond excel, but can be handled by VBA (it seems like this bit of code is a great start: then i need a hand making this monster work.


I've spent a good while searching thru forums and websites trying to figure this one out, so I'm hoping that someone who knows how to make this work will chip in.
I work with aircraft arrivals to worldwide destinations, so lots of time zones can be factored in to the answer. My tracking system gives me the time in minutes that the aircraft will take to reach it's final destination, for example 408 minutes. I've converted that to hours, no problem. I would like to use the =now() function to get the current local time, but it displays the date as well in the particular cell. I can then add those two times and get a reasonably good answer. However, when I try to convert the times from local time to GMT (or Zulu/UTC), I keep getting errors. I'm in Washington, DC which is 4 hours behind GMT. I'm thinking that its reading the cell as a formula and not a value, so I have to go manually from there to convert to different time zones. Am I missing some easy but elusive step?

Thanks in advance......
