I'm using Time Stamp version 3.21.2006-0906.

Looking at a time card that had one entry, I suddenly spotted a terrible problem.

I worked for 29 minutes, and it shows 29 minutes ELAPSED and 1 hour WORKED. Where did that 1 hour come from??

The only total generated is for the "WORKED" column (which is automatically multiplied by the hourly rate).

So the sheets are worthless unless I add the ELAPSED TIME by hand.

Can someone explain this? Have I toggled a setting that I shouldn't have? Thanks!

I haven't tried it yet (I've rushed on to other work), but the next time I use Time Stamp, I'll try that!
