Default Convert minutes into hours and minutes

I use a spreadsheet that totals minutes in different cells. I need those
totals added then converted into hours and minutes, NOT into days and hours
and minutes, and NOT into fractional hours. As an example, 1520 minutes
should be 25 hours and 20 minutes or 25:20. Days, hours, minutes (01:00:20)
does me no good, nor does fractional hour (25.33). I used the TEXT formula,
but found that minutes could not exceed 1440 (24 hours). In the example
above with 1520 minutes, it returned 01:20. The CONVERT formula falls short
since it only converts minutes into (fractional) hours and not minutes into
hours and minutes. Any help?

Format the cell as Custom [h]:mm.

The formula in the cell shouLd be:

=SUM(A1:A100)/1440

If your minutes are entered in non-time format, add them and divide by 1440.

Example: =SUM(A1:A19)/1440

Format the result [h]:mm

The site below will give you some understanding why this works how times are
stored in Excel.

Thanks, didn't really think anyone would respond. Just like that, it worked.

Default Convert minutes into hours and minutes

What if I want to display the converted hours and minutes as 25 h 20 min and
not as 25:20? When I tried to format the cell as Custom [h] h mm min Excel
though the first m of "min" meant minutes and displayed 25 h 20 20in. How to
go around this and display neatly time with text abbreviations 25 h 20 min?

Don't you Google groupies know how to look at dates? You don't get bonus
points for answering old questions.
