    I've got a column that looks like this:

    12:10:10
    15:32:01
    14:49:20 etc...

    What I need to do is add a few of them together, but the total keeps coming out as the time, when I just want it to show as the total amount. E.G: If I add 12:10:10 and 15:32:01 together, I want it to say 27:42:11 because that's the total

    It's probably really easy, but I can't seem to get going today

    Custom format the cell of the formula that does the summing as:

    [h]:mm.ss
