Excel XP Displaying time

I am wanting to produce a productivity report within Excel XP.

I have everything ready but rather than returning a result of 25:10:10  (hh/mm/ss) it returns 01:01:10:10 (dd:hhmm:ss)

I have already tried customising the format to hhh:mm:ss but its ignores it.

Does anyone know the formatting to get a reult in hours: minutes: seconds please?

I found the answer via the MS website but as you have also provided the answer within that site I'll accept it.

its [hh]:mm:ss to display in hours
so  [mm].ss displaying in minutes
and [ss] displays in seconds
