Hello Experts,

I had an error today with a formula to calculate the time spent in a Task List.

I used: =TEXT([Due Time]-[Start Time]],"h:mm")

But I did not have the expected result (it not calculates if more than 24 hours).

So I applied this formula: =INT(([Due Date]-[Start Date])*1440)
It shows the minutes spent.


How do I convert this integer value to hours: minutes?,


Start Time: 10:00 AM
Due Time: 11:15 AM
Result: 75

Desired Result: 1:15

you need the modulo operator to do that.

hours = int(INT(([Due Date]-[Start Date])*1440) / 60)
minutes = INT(([Due Date]-[Start Date])*1440) % 60

Then you do something like text( hours & ":" & minutes)
