You could convert to a serial time by using a the following formula: (m + s/60)/(24*60) and then format the cell as mm:ss (Format - Number - Custom).

How can I calculate the 25th and 75th percentiles of the mortgage payments for each city and then birth month? I'd normally just pivot, but it only has min/max/average and I need percentiles. I can't think of a real elegant to do this. You could add columns for each...
Quote: Originally Posted by Connemara I have a very long worksheet that I'm trying to sort in a specific way. Basically, each row is a company's name plus some other data. Each data point is repeated individually, with the company's name, in individual rows. I want to sort by frequency...so Company X, which is shown 15 times, should be on top of Company Y, which is shown only in 12 rows. But it seems the only way I Can do that is by doing alphabetical...

Each sheet has a different test type, and each subject on the same row. Is there a way to make a new sheet for each subject, with the data...

'm sure I've done that in VBE in R1C1 back in the day, but not from a cell formula. My boss needed to do that, and I figured...
Quote: Originally Posted by fairholme_wannabe Quick question regarding pivot tables--should be pretty easy but I can't figure it out. Let's say I have a pivot table with rows of brands --> items within brand --> year and column of months Formatted so that I can easily see YoY Lifts, etc per item. However, I would also like to see YoY Lifts per brand, yet because the year is a row as well, it rolls up all years per month on the brand subtotal. ...

This is causing the file to get quite large. Does anyone know how to turn off this...
