Not as far as I know. Times are stored as numbers - as fractions of
a day - so any number you enter, even if it contains a point, is
interpreted as a number of days but then displayed in hours and
minutes, as you have chosen. Critically, it is the presence of the
colon that would indicate that you are entering a time in hours and
minutes, and I don't see how you can stimulate that interpretation
Maybe I didn't write it clearly.
Oh, I think you did. Did you not understand the answer?
I hope so (:-)
The cell is formatted [[HH]:MM first, ...
I'm slightly confused by this, as I don't see how that is possible. I
assumed you meant [HH]:MM .
Now I think that I understand it. Cell format changes only display of
value not internal format.
... then I enter digits ( time). I thought that cell format
stimulates it, then IMHO automatic entering of : after second digit
seems natural to me (:-))
This may be how the spreadsheet software you write yourself might work,
but Calc doesn't do this. (Neither does Excel.) This particular cell
formatting controls the display of cell contents rather than the
interpretation of values entered.
Is it possible that mode of reading values by calc ( entering values to
cells ) can be changed to the one described by display format ?
I do not want change of internal format , if Calc didn't like it.
Is there a view ( or smth else) of a spreadsheet where I can see/check
formats of all cells ?
