    I know it's simple but it's been driving me nuts. I have 3 columns of start times, end times, and time difference (in the format hh:mm i.e 07:30 / 08:00 / 00:30). The time differences need adding into a seperate column, but I am encountering a bit of a snag.

    When trying to add time differences of 1:30, 8:30, 12:15, 3:45 and 0:00 the answer returns as 2:00 (it is counting the minutes, and correctly adding them to 2 hours, but it is ignoring the hours).

    Cheers,
    Marcus

    The cell of the formula that add times must be custom formatted as

    [h]:mm
