Hi, I am calculating the hours, min (calling it opportunity) by multiplying available slots of 2 hrs and no of slots as 20. This means 20 hrs available time.

Now, i have sum of time spent (start date + time & End date + time) by 4 people.

I have to calculate gap : [available time] minus [sum of time spent].

when i convert available time 2 x 20 into time format ([h]:mm:ss) it gives me 960:00:00 or if i do =TIME(40,0,0) and convert into [h]:mm:ss, it gives 16:00:00

o The time function does not work with values greater than one day: TIME(40,0,0)=TIME(16,0,0). The extra days are discarded.
o The “[h]:mm:ss” format will correctly display multiple days as hours.

Excel dates and times are just numbers and can be displayed in a variety of formats,not affecting the value itself.
What is the exact format you want after the calculations are done?
