Good Afternoon

I am currently using a =SUMIF formula to look through a sheet of data and calculate the total time for a specific person. For example:

Rob   00:35:00
Etc
Etc
Etc
Rob   00:25:00

However this does not apear to return the 01:00:00, I was expecting. Have I got the formate of the =SUMIF cell incorrect or do I need to use a different method to cope with calculating time?

Thank you

David

You have not provided

The formula you used
The result of the formula
The column names for the data

which would make it easier to help you. The best thing would be to upload an excel workbook showing what you have done.

What seems to be the problem?

35 Minutes plus 25 minutes = 1 hour as correctly calculated by your formula.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

SUMIF should work fine - using yuppydu's setup you can use this formula

=SUMIF(G:G,J5,H:H)

SUMIF is normally preferable to SUMPRODUCT, it's more efficient

format result cell as a time value, for elapsed time use [h]:mm

@yuppydu - apokigies, I hadn't realised it wasn't the question asked that had posted the sample. Should have looked more carefully.
