I have a file here that basically assesses if the number of hours in Bank holiday is greater than the number of hours in I1. However, even though all the hours in the cells and in i2 have been formatted as [hh]:mm, the formula is not assessing correctly. For some reason the entry in I2 , which has been entered as 40:00 and formatted as [hh]:mm, is showing as 01/01/1900  16:00:00 in the formula bar.
