    Format the total cell as [h]:mm:ss ... note the square brackets round the h.

    Re: How to sum time (HH:MM:SS)

    You need to apply a Custom Format in cell C5 of:

    [h]:mm:ss

    to prevent the hours from wrapping at 24. This is the English version, but in Denmark you will need to use the initials for hours, minutes and seconds - the important bit is to put square brackets around the hours term.

    Hope this helps.
