Structure Export to Excel


When I export my structure to excel to do some more advanced reporting the hours are exported as time instead of decimals. Because of this i have to manually change all the hours to decimals so that i can run reporting.

Is there a way to export the hours from structure as decimals instead of actual time?

Ex. I have exported a project where the time is 3 hours (3.00) but in excel it shows up as 3:00

Hi Darryl,

There's no way to export time as decimals, currently, but you can easily convert the duration into decimals in Excel. The cell shows you time formatting, and the value is there in days. So what you need is to add another column in Excel, and fill the cells with formulas like =K2*24 where K2 is the cell with the time, and apply decimal formatting to the column.

Hope this helps!
