Imagine you've collected samples from a data acquisition device, and know the time you started taking samples (12:04 pm), and when you stopped (12:36 pm). You'd end up with two columns of data like this:

12.7     12:04 pm
6.1       12:36 pm

My question is, is there a way to generate the intermediate time values in the second column?

No - simply because the samples may well have been taken at irregular intervals!

If you mean that we are to suppose that the intervals were regular, let's suppose that these values are in cells A1:B6. In B2, enter:
and fill this down to B5. Note that your times may need to be proper times (numbers formatted as times) and not text values for this to work. If the number of samples is itself to be variable, you could develop a more complicated formula that would count the items and not have the "5" hard-coded in it.

I trust this helps.
