## INTRODUCTION

This article describes how to enter fractions of an hour in time sheets in Microsoft Office Small Business Accounting, in Microsoft Office Accounting Professional, and in Microsoft Office Accounting Express.

When you enter the amount of hours that an employee has worked in a time sheet, you must enter the minutes as a fraction of an hour. For example, if an employee worked one hour and 20 minutes, you would type 1.333 in the Duration (Hours) field. The following chart shows how minutes are converted to a fraction of an hour by dividing the number of minutes by 60.
