I am not sure if this has been asked before.
What would be the Numbers formula for converting HH:MM:SS to DD:HH:MM:SS?  The Excel formula is entering 396:59:45 into a cell and then in another cell is the following =TEXT(A2,"dd:hh:mm:ss").  The A2 is the example cell.

There is no formula to actually do the conversion. It is a matter setting the cell format. After that all you need to do is add a simple =<cell> formula to get the value in (i.e. - see my previous post), or a formula to add the two values (=A2+A5). Use Duration rather then Time for the cell formats.
A duration in Numbers for iOS will not appear 10:16:25:03, it will display as 10d 16h 25m 03s. If it is the actual display punctuation you are trying to change, it may be possible using a combination of a Duration and TEXT functions but would be quite lengthy, convoluted, and more trouble than it is worth.
