I have a spreadsheet.   I enter 3:45 and have the cell formatted as h:mm.
It shows as 3:45 AM

If I format it as hh:mm it will show as 3:45, but if I enter 3:45 PM it
shows as 15:45.

The numeric value in the cell will is 3.75/24 = 0.15625 If I enter =3.75/24
I get 00/01/1900 03:45. How do I lose the date.

Is there something wrong with my default workbook?
