finding missing data value when date and time are combine


i have large amount of data with one coloume comtain date and time combine of one month and second data contain temperature. but some of time are missing during recording in combined date and time how i can find missing value in large data.




I couldn't find a single cell that had a missing time, just some that were at midnight, so they had zeros.

I imported it into Excel in order to look through it and Excel can sometimes convert a "no time" to zero.

But, can you give some examples of where there is no time so I know what to look for?

I didn't do anything with your file except look at it. Update your Question to provide some examples of where the time is missing so I can try to help.

I already looked at that and I could NOT find a missing time value.

Give me an example of one of this missing time values so I can look at it - tell me the row it is on or the date value for it or the temperature value for it so I can see an example of what is wrong.

I told you this already!

I do not think that any date time value is missing a time in your attached file.

I think I see the problem now.

The only thing that you can do from Excel is to sort the data to ensure it is in the correct order and then identify where there are issues, if any.

What I would do is to put this formula in cell C3 (not cell C2) and copy it down by double-clicking the bottom right of the cell with the formula.


When that is done, sort or filter by the column with the formula. You can filter it (Data tab > Filter) and just show the cells that contain the text Error and then you will quickly know where there is missing data.

This will let you know if there is any missing data and where it is.


I uploaded the file with the formula put into it.



U see after 13/12/15 show error.

I don't get that error at all. I simply copied the formula I gave you into cell C3 and then copied it down for the rest of the data and I did not get any #VALUE! errors.

No. Upload it to your original question and include a line of text saying that you updated it so I will know that you did.

Look at the file I Uploaded. I just deleted column C and put back in the formula I gave you and copied it down.

I saved the file as an Excel file. a CSV file won't save the formulas.

do you have a question? The file you uploaded looks good to me. ok moment
don (rep: 1705) Jul 15, '16 at 3:56 pm
Sorry, my mistake, use this formula:

The 1 is replaced with 0.000695.
I updated my answer as well.
This formula says there is an error if the next row is more than a minute off.
