For my application using the [SS].00 option did the trick. As I required
to determine number of seconds required to move 500m. I also need to

Thanks for all the help both on-line and off-line.

2 interesting options, which one you choose depends upon what you want
to do with the number you get. You need to bear in mind that option 2
is just showing you DAYS in a different format.
If the time is how long to run 100 (m/ft) and you want to calculate a
speed for instance you would divide 100 by the seconds.
Option 1 will give you the m(ft)/second velocity.
Option 2 will give you the m(ft)/day velocity.
Quite different answers.

I have a spreadsheet containing timing results which are displayed
the a Format code of MM:SS.00 (02:58.03).
What I require is the number of seconds the cell represents as a
number of seconds (178.03) for the above value.
The actual, numerical value stored in such a cell is a number of

Suppose you have 02:58.03 in A1, you put "=A1" in A2, then Ctrl+M to
formatting, it will show you something like 0.002060532
To convert from "number of day" to "number of seconds", multiply with
60*60*24. For example, putting "=A1*60*60*24" in A3 will display 178.03
