How to get time difference as minutes in Excel?

Question

I have time values in two cells in an Excel sheet and I need the difference of
the times in minutes.

The cells in the Excel are like below:

   A        B        C
1  6:38     8:23     1:45:00

A is the start time
B is the end time
C is the time difference (B1-A1) which is displayed in hh:mm:ss format

A and B cols are formatted as custom hh:mm and cell C is formatted as custom hh:mm:ss.

But I need to get in the value in cell C1 as 105 instead of 1:45:00.

Could you please help in displaying time only in minutes and giving the right format?

Answer

Just set the cell to be shown in numerical format and it will show a decimal number.

The integer part corresponds to the date value (i.e. the day) and the decimal part to the time of the day.

If you multiply the numerical value of 1:45 (which is 0,07) by 24×60 (the number of hours in a day and the number of minutes in an hour) you will obtain the value in minutes of your cell (105).
