Convert Epoch time to UTC in Excel

I have found myself today needing to convert the ugly Epoch time that Unix loves to use in to UTC to make date/time origination of calls within Call Detail Records more human readable and I stumbled across a nice little formula that will allow you to convert this in to UTC.

Below is the formula:

=(((J2-(6*3600))/86400)+25569)

If you substitute J2 with the number you want to convert and then change the format of the cell to a date/time format, you will get the UTC date/time.

Pretty handy!
