If you are looking to convert to time format, you can create "New Column"

Total Time = TIME ( 0, 0, Table[Total Time_Minutes] * 60 )

If you just want to convert to hours then

Total Time = DIVIDE ( Table[Total Time_Minutes], 60, 0 )

teh data i am picking this from is in exel and when i use teh above formula it doesnt work , it do TotalTime_Hrs=Divide(Activity Name[TotalTime_Mins],60,0)   . it throws an exception.  "Activity Name" is the sheet name in the file i am refering to

Can you please share a screenshot of the table in Power BI? And what is the name of the table?
