    Problem with sumifs not calculating correctly.

    Hello, I'm trying to calculate to total number of hours for each month.
    On one sheet, I have three columns. Start , stop, and total. Start and Stop are full date/time columns. Total is a number.
    Once this goes live, there will be many, many entries for each month, not just one line.

    Example:

    (SHEET "MF_CREMATIONS", C4 - E4)
    Start End Total
    1/25/15 7:13 PM 1/25/15 10:10 PM 2:57:00
    2/25/15 10:30 PM 2/26/15 1:10 AM 2:40:00
    3/25/15 1:01 PM 3/25/15 3:01 PM 2:00:00
    4/25/15 1:01 PM 4/25/15 3:01 PM 2:00:00
    5/25/15 1:01 PM 5/25/15 3:01 PM 2:00:00
    6/25/15 1:01 PM 6/25/15 3:01 PM 2:00:00
    7/25/15 1:01 PM 7/25/15 3:01 PM 2:00:00
    8/25/15 1:01 PM 8/25/15 3:01 PM 2:00:00
    9/25/15 1:01 PM 9/25/15 3:01 PM 2:00:00
    10/25/15 1:01 PM 10/25/15 3:01 PM 2:00:00
    11/25/15 1:01 PM 11/25/15 3:01 PM 2:00:00
    12/25/15 1:01 PM 12/25/15 3:01 PM 2:00:00

    On my reporting sheet, I have the sumifs capturing for each month.

    (this row is hidden , but is the calculating cells in formula...B5, C5...) 1/1/2015 2/1/2015 3/1/2015 4/1/2015 5/1/2015 6/1/2015 7/1/2015 8/1/2015 9/1/2015 10/1/2015 11/1/2015 12/1/2015
    JANUARY FEBRUARY MARCH APRIL MAY JUNE JULY AUGUST SEPTEMBER OCTOBER NOVEMBER DECEMBER
    57:00.0 40:00.0 00:00.0 00:00.0 00:00.0 00:00.0 00:00.0 00:00.0 00:00.0 00:00.0 00:00.0 00:00.0

    The problem is that it's leaving off the hours.

    Report Example:
    JANUARY
    57:00.0 ....should be 2:57:00.0

    FEBRUARY
    40:00.0 ....Should be 2:40:00.0

    formula in that cell: =SUMIFS(MF_CREMATIONS!$E$4:$E$499,MF_CREMATIONS!$C$4:$C$499,">="&B5,MF_CREMATIONS!$C$4:$C$499,"<"&C5)

    What am I doing wrong, that is causing it to leave off the hours?

    Suggest you post a sample workbook.

    It won't let me upload my workbook. It says that it exceeds the file size limitation.

    Try removing some of the data, maybe not all is needed to solve the task. Or use dropbox or similar

    Re: Problem with sumifs not calculating correctly.

    I have literally posted the total content of my spreadsheet in text format. There isn't anything more to it, nor anything to cut out.

    Change the format of the cells to [h]:mm:ss to include hours.
