How can I correctly type in total hours worked so that I can have excel add them up correctly.  I am typing in the hours worked and need in hours and minutes what they equal for each person separately.

    Is this what you want to do? Check the attached file. Format the Total column cells as Custom:  [h]:mm  so that they display correctly the hours and minutes worked.

    In the example file provided, if you total up more than 24 hours it will start at 00:00 again. To get round this you need to apply a custom time format of [hh]:mm to the cells.

    This was a time sheet for a single person that tallied daily hours then formatted to to decimal format for the week 1, 2 and biweekly totals fields.

    feel free to reuse whatever you like

    thank you, I knew it was something simple just was using h:mm  instead of [h]:mm.
