Excel weekly time sheet

The weekly number of hours is 41 - 8:12 by day. The employe wants to know when he is below or above the required time.
In time format, it is easy to display a positive difference but impossible to display a negative one.
The J column displays the day total (standard sum)
The K column shows the difference in time format but always positive. To distinguish positive numbers from negative numbers, we have applied a conditional format.
The L column shows the difference also but this time as a positive or negative value (through converting from time format to decimal format)
