To fix this error:
Click OK in the error window to close it, then:
If this is the only payroll item for the day, enter a different number of hours (less than 24) for the payroll line item.
If there are multiple payroll items, you can change the values or leave them as they are.
If you save the timesheet without changing the hours (by clicking Save & Close or Save & New), a new message appears: "More than 24 hours have been entered for a single day. Do you want to continue?" Click Yes to accept the hours, or No to adjust them.
You may see this error because you:
Entered more than 24 hours for a single day with one payroll item line on an employee's weekly timesheet.
Entered more than 24 hours on a Time/Enter Single activity sheet.
Imported information from the Timer and then edited the timesheet so that there are more than 24 hours in a timesheet day.
You are tracking piecework on timesheets.
If you have more than one payroll item line on a weekly timesheet and one day's hours total more than 24, you will receive a slightly different message: "An activity's duration totals for a day should not exceed 24 hours."
