Example

In this example, Time is the original column and Time - ToSeconds shows the converted values.

 

To interpret the conversion, we see that in row 1, 1 hour, 9 minutes, and 30 seconds (01:09:34) is converted to 4174 seconds, i.e.: (1 hour x 60 minutes x 60 seconds) + (9 minutes x 60 seconds) + 34 seconds.
