    Assuming that you don't want a decimal answer (28.3333 days) which you can get by simply subtracting one from the other....

    With your first time in A1, the second in A2 you could try...
    =CONCATENATE(TRUNC(A2-A1)," days ",TRUNC((A2-A1-TRUNC(A2-A1))*24)," hours ",TRUNC(((A2-A1-TRUNC(A2-A1))*24)-TRUNC((A2-A1-TRUNC(A2-A1))*24))*60, " minutes")

    which will give you
    "28 days 8 hours 0 minutes" as text

    In C2 enter:

    =((B2-A2)*24)/24

    where A2 is earlier in time than B2 (that is, B2 > A2, wrt to date.

    Custom format C2 as [h]:mm

    I get wrt the example: 32:00

    Is this what you're looking for?

    There seems to be quite a discrepency between the offered solutions - is your later date 3-FEB-02 or 2-MAR-02 ??

    Never assume everybody encodes the world as you do. Seeing

    "How do I calculate the elapsed time between the following dates:
    2/2/02 09:15
    2/3/02 17:15"

    I assumed American usage: mm/dd/yy

    that is:

    2-Feb-02 09:15
    3-Feb-02 17:15

    where 3-Feb-02 is later in time, if you ask me.
