If i was doing it i would store it in mins the display it in hours
TIME is a MOD 60
so by storing the mins
its easy just to add them up to get the total mins
60+60+30+25+45 = 220
now we go 220 / 60 and drop the bits after the dot we get 3 hole hours
now lets work out the difference
now if we go 3 * 60 = 180
now what the difference between 220-180 = 40*
so the answer is 3:40
* this number will always be less than 60 part there of a hour
stuff it here my code I use all the time.
ill even got a SQL function hiding away in a server somewhere
which does the same thing
Function MintoHrs(num) 'if num="" then num = 0 If num < 60 Then MintoHrs = "00:" & DIG(num) Else hh = Int(num / 60) temp = (hh * 60) MintoHrs = DIG(hh) & ":" & DIG((num - temp)) End If End Function Function DIG(num) If Len(num) = 1 Then DIG = "0" & num Else DIG = num End If End Function
how how to use it
in a query
the a form / report
2:30 = MintoHrs(60 + 60 + 30)hope this help
See clear as mud
the aim is store once, not store multiple times

I agree with StePhan about storing everything in Minutes, for the stated reasons. Once you have the Total Minutes, parsing it into Hours and Minutes, ala HH:MM, is simple:
HoursMinutes = Format(TotalMinutes \ 60, "00") & ":" & Format(TotalMinutes Mod 60, "00")

The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!
