Quero entrar apenas com minutos e segundos, não quero que use horas...

Usei a formatação mm:ss, aí digitei o que deveria aparecer 29:10 (29 minutos e 10 segundos) a célula me retornou 10:00, ou seja sumiu com o 29 que deveriam ser minutos e colocou o que era para ser 10 segundos, como 10 minutos...

Absurdo não ter como trabalhar apenas o que formatamos mm:ss.

How would you go about creating a formula to deduct/add one time value from another to give you a total time? For Example: 10:00am (Cell 1) + 12:00pm (Cell 2) = 2 Hours or 10:00am + 12:30pm = 2.5 hours I am looking to create a sort of timesheet to track my hours worked and would simply like to enter my Start time and End time and have it calculate to reflect total time worked. Been struggling with this for years.
