It seems to be working correctly for me. What is your desired format for timespans longer than one day? If you want it in d:hh:mm, then you need to select the number formatting and put that in. If you want to express the number of hours by iteself, then you need to use a formula. For example,

A3: 53
B3: =INT(A3/60) & ":" & MOD(A3,60)
