If you have something that looks like 0:16:30 and you think it is 0 days, 16
hours and 30 minutes,
it's no, excel thinks it is 16 minutes and 30 seconds,

however just as long as you know that you can convert it, assume the value
is in
A1

=A1*86400

format as general

If you're just concerned with what is displayed.....

If you input 0:16:30 in excel then this will be interpreted as 1
minutes 30 seconds.In this case to display as 990 custom format as [s]

If you do indeed have a cell formatted as d:hh:mm which shows 0:16:3
then just reformat as [m] and it should show 99
