    Calculating time difference

    I want to calculate the number of hours/minutes between 2 times. I have formatted the cells to hh:mm but when I try to put the actual time into the cell it shows 00:00 and on the function line shows a date and 00:00. Can anyone advise on where I am going wrong.

    Many thanks in advance

    Re: Calculating time difference

    Are you entering the time correctly, with a colon (12:00)? If not, e.g. you're entering it with a full stop (12.00), Excel will interpret that as a date.

    (Also, if you're looking for differences which might be more than 24hrs, use [h]:mm instead, otherwise Excel will only count time up to 23:59:59.)

    My internet connection can be intermittent, so sometimes I may not reply quickly to questions. Sorry - it's not personal and I will reply eventually.
    If your problem is solved, please go to 'Thread Tools' above your first post and 'Mark this Thread as Solved'.
    If you use commas as your decimal separator (1,23 instead of 1.23) then please replace commas with semi-colons in your formulae.
    You don't need to give me rep if I helped, but a thank-you is nice.
