The following formula converts time from the hour:minute format to a decimal equivalent in a Microsoft Works spreadsheet
=(Time Reference-INT(Time Reference))*24
where “Time Reference” is the location of the number you want to convert from colon format to decimal. It can be a cell reference or a string of numbers.

The result is “4.5”.
