formula to calculate number of hours worked in a day
I am trying to put together a time sheet, where I can put my time in and out,
and then give the total hours at the end of the day. For example, I sum (12 pm 8 am) + (5 pm 1 pm). I have formatted these cells to show time. But my formula spits out a sub zero number. Do I need to divide these by 24?

Format cells as hh:mm and Total cell as [h]:mm: the latter will stop Excel
subtracting 24 from the total if it is >24 Start time in A1 and Finish Time in B1 in C1: =MOD(B1A1,1) This will allow for times running over midnight If this doesn't ever happen then =(B1A1) will suffice Assuming times are in rows 1 to 7 , then in C8: =SUM(C1:C7) C8 formatted as [h]:mm HTH "xololady" wrote: > I am trying to put together a time sheet, where I can put my time in and out, > and then give the total hours at the end of the day.

Thank you! That worked! I thought my formula made sense, but it didn't
work.

formula to calculate number of hours worked in a day
If you want to get decimal hours, rather than Excel time format, divide by
24 and format as General or Number. But the answer is 8 hours, not a subzero number. You may need to check that all your data are times, not text. Temporarily format the four input cells as number, rather than time, and then you should see them all change to decimals of a day. If they don't all change to decimals of a day, there may be spare spaces or nonprinting characters which are keeping them as text.

OK< Next question. When I total the hours at the bottom, I want to take that
total and multiply by an hourly wage, such as $8. I got 10 hours for a sum, but when I multiplied it by 8, I got $3.33. "xololady" wrote: > Thank you! That worked!

formula to calculate number of hours worked in a day
I got the hours to do what I want. Now I am trying to calculate wages
earned. So I add the total hours by $8. I got 10 hours times $8 and it gave me $3.33. The hours are formated as time and the total hours is formated as time. I calculated the pay cell cell as currency.

formula to calculate number of hours worked in a day
If you want to convert Excel times (which are counted in days) into hours,
then you need to multiply by 24. Your 10 hours, if still an Excel time, is stored as 10/24, so when you multiply by 8 you get 3.33.

formula to calculate number of hours worked in a day
If total hours in C8 (as per my posting), then in D8:
=C8*24*8 and format as NUMBER (or Currency) If you want total hours to be decimal number: in C8: =SUM(C1:C7)*24 and format as NUMBER in D8: =C8*8 (As per David's replies) HTH "xololady" wrote: > I got the hours to do what I want.

I was, of course, asleep when I said DIVIDE by 24. I should have said
MULTIPLY by 24.
