Think this gets the job done as I see it, but it is a somewhat complex process.
Did the work at top of spreadsheet, but copied it a couple times, and then 
copied it to show formulas.

Pasted into text editor, and changed spaces to _ and \t to ;


Has 8 columns, and calcs the differences in second row. Other rows adjust 
values if next column resulted in negative value. Probable would need a little 
more work, since if the top value is 0 or 1 in some cases might require further 
changes? Will have to look at it more, but would do most.

just a quick question: if A1 holds 1.7.18. 15:30 and if A2 holds

returns 30:6:50 instead 0:6:50?

Assuming those dates are 7th January 2018, since your mail headers 
indicate you're using a US locale...

2018-01-07 15:30:00 is represented internally as 43107.645833
2018-01-07 22:20:00 is represented internally as 43107.930556

Subtracting those numbers gives 0.284723, which represents the 
date/time 1899-12-30 06:50:00

The day of month is 30, hence the 30 when that value is represented as 

Ah, I get it -- and I don't. If I want 0.284723 to be represented as 
'd-h-m', why to treat it as date? Wouldn't it make sense to include a 
function to LO Calc that could convert that number in desired format in, 
just guessing, a text type.

So something like =TIMEPASSED(A1;"d:m:s:ms") or 

Seams not very complicated to add function like that...
