With your data like this: A B C 1) Days Hours & Min 2) 5d 14h 36m 5 14:36 3) 03d 09h 51m 3 9:51 4) 06d 08h 30m 6 8:30 5) 6) 15 Days 8:57:00In cell C2 enter the formula:

=TIME(MID(A2,FIND("d",A2)+2,2),MID(A2,FIND("h",A2)+2,2),)

Drag down as many rows as needed.

In cell B6 enter the formula:

=SUM(B2:B4)+INT(SUM(C2:C4))&" Days"

In cell C6 enter the formula:

=IF(INT(SUM(C2:C4))>=1,SUM(C2:C4)-"24:00:00",SUM(C2:C4))

Cell C6 must be formatted as: [H]:MM:SS

The bracket around the H is required.See how that works for you.

Thanks for your reply Lakshan. However, What im trying to do is adding to getting the sum a range of data in days hours and minutes, i.e 5d 14h 36m + 03d 09h 51m + 06d 08h 30m which sould equal 15d 08h 57m. Right now what I do manually converting the dats into hours so get the summary then convert it again to (Days, Hours, Mins) format whish is a really long process and could get confusing if i have to calculate longer range. I am looking if there is better way to do it or a formula or command in excel to simplify the process.

re: "Im using microsoft excel 10"There is no such thing as

"microsoft excel 10".There is Microsoft Windows 10 (an OS) and there is Microsoft Excel 2010 (an application).

Just for clarification, what do you have?

I meant I have windows 8, ms excel 2010.

You may find this solution easier, and more robust. With your data like this:

A B C D 1) Days Hours Minutes 2) 5d 14h 36m 5 14 36 3) 03d 09h 51m 3 9 51 4) 06d 08h 30m 6 8 30 5) 6) 15 Days 8 Hours 57 Min.In cell B2 enter the formula:

=LEFT(A2,FIND("d",A2,1)-1)*1

In cell C2 enter the formula:

=MID(A2,FIND("d",A2)+2,2)*1

In cell D2 enter the formula:

=MID(A2,FIND("h",A2)+2,2)*1

Drag down all three formulas.

In cell B6 enter the formula:

=SUM(B2:B4)+INT(SUM(C2:C4)/24)&" Days"

In cell C6 enter the formula:

=MOD(SUM(C2:C4)/24,1)*24+INT(SUM(D2:D4)/60)&" Hours"

In cell D6 enter the formula:

=MOD(SUM(D2:D4)/60,1)*60&" Min."

And finally, if you want the answer in a single cell

enter this formula, which simply combines all three:=SUM(B2:B4)+INT(SUM(C2:C4)/24)&" Days"&" "&MOD(SUM(C2:C4)/24,1)*24+INT(SUM(D2:D4)/60)&" Hours"&" "&MOD(SUM(D2:D4)/60,1)*60&" Min."
