Over time speadsheet

in column H I have the hours and in column I there is the minutes, starting in H6 to H30 I have put the "sum" formula in and the same in the I column, is there a way when the minutes gets greater than 60 minutes, that it can change the hours accordingly. Clear as mud, eh.

It is much easier to work with times in Excel if you input them as Excel times e.g. hh:mm.

However, we can get around that given that you've entered the data in the way that you have (assuming that you only have whole numbers, no decimals).

In a spare column (say J) in J6 enter the formula


and fill the formula down as far as needed.

Then to get the total duration use the formula


and format the cell containing that formula as Custom [h]:mm

If I was starting from scratch what would you suggest because what you have told me to do has confused the heck out of me.

What I would do is choose a single column to enter times and use hh:mm.

For example type in 11:25 for 11 hours 25 minutes.

Then use a SUM() on that single column. You will still need to use a Custom format of [h]:mm in the cell containing the SUM() formula to get the total duration displayed if it exceeds 24 hours.

Why is the solution always under your nose and always so simple, cheers VoG.
