Timespan (In/Out/Duration) fields are formatted as "HH:MM:SS.###" where H = hours, M = minutes, S = seconds, and ### = milliseconds (1/1000 sesond).
Enter hour, minute and second values as 2 digits. Milliseconds are optional. Examples: For 1 hour 21 minutes, enter "012100". For 1 minute 3 seconds, enter 000103. For 2 minutes 1.5 seconds, enter 000201.5.

Duration is calculated automatically using in and out times.
