    I am very new to Excel and I use it not much. But my problem is: I have to add different times to a total time.

    person A worked 2:30(hh:mm) hours, person B worked 1:35 hours, person C worked 4:54 etc. Now I want to have a cell with the totall time (in this case it should be: 8:59).

    Can anybody help me please.

    Edwin


    BTW English is not my native language so sorry if I have writen something wrong.

    Hi Edwin, simplest way is to format the cells using custom formats as hh:mm then as long as you input the hours worked as eg 02:30 or 12:20 when you sum the cells in the normal way you should get the answer 14:50.

    Regards

    Thanks. That worked but if the total time is more than 24 hours he will start to count from zero again and I am missing 24 hours. What to do with that?

    Change the Format of the cell to Custom Format, and use [h]:mm or [h]:mm:ss as required
