SharePoint 2007 - Calculated Fields

I was reading thru some blogs, namely that of Kevin DeRudder, today.  He recently posted some information on calculated fields.  I get questions pretty often from clients on the available formulas when creating a calculated field.  In his post, Kevin talks about how to reference a yes/no field from a formula inside a calculated field.

I just wanted to expand on his post a little and post this link to Examples of common formulas on the Microsoft Office Online site.  I frequently complain about the lack of documentation when it comes to SharePoint, but it seems someone had the time this time around and has documented a good deal of the formulas available for calculated fields.

Everything from Conditional Formulas, Date and time formulas, Math formulas, Text formulas and a few others are documented quite nicely.

There is even a page that talks about the Calculation operators.  This includes the "Types of operators" available and "The order in which a list performs operations in a formula".

I hope you find this page as useful as I did.

The only catch I've run into on those formulas is I can't find any for time conversion.  Several that reference string to time formats, which work well and easily.  But I need to switch something from Mil time to standard so that sharepoint calendars will recognize it.
