Hi BR,

Format the cells in the time column with the Custom format hh:mm:ss.000

So in Excel do Right Click -> Format Cells... -> Number -> Custom -> Type: and then enter the above format. Unfortunately Excel will only support 3 digits after the decimal place i.e. down to milliseconds.

Best regards...Paul
