    I have 6 columns which have hours & minutes worked per day, eg; 8h 37m. In the 7th column I want to add these together & have the result displayed as h & m.
    In the 7th column I right clicked, format cells, custom, h.mm, okay., I then clicked the cell & in the text bar entered .... =SUM(C2:H2)., but the answer does not appear as hours & minutes.
    Also once these formula's are entered can I click & drag over multiple rows.

    Thanks in advance

    It sounds just like you want to join the text string up. You do this by putting an & between the cell references you wish to join


    you might also type:


    It's not a mathematical / summing function because there's no way of excel knowing that what you are stringing together is time related.
