Excel Duration - Transforms to different types

I'm buiding some reporting based on Excel files, these will be dropped in a folder monthly. I have the first months data, I usually just copy that file a couple of times to simulate multiple months of reports. 


Excel sheet has a duration column with custom formatting. 



On the first sheet it comes in as a decimal value (could simply convert to duration as transform). The next two (which are simply copies of the original) it comes in as a date/time by default (can't easily convert). Any ideas on why the differnt sheets (again just copy and pasted the whole Excel file) are showing different default formats after expansion 



The expansion columns show as type "Any"
{"Talk Time", type any}, {"Column7", type any}

@JoeDC , keep your time in second and use Dynamic FOrmatting to handle this


Time format

"""" & QUOTIENT([net time],3600) & ":" & QUOTIENT(mod([net time],3600),60) & ":" & round(mod(mod([net time],3600),60),0) & """"
