Time formula (difference of predicted and actual time)
I have a time formula in my spreedsheet. It is to calculate the difference
in a predicted time with the actual time. Time is entered as text eg. 14:00. My formula is =TEXT(A4H4,"H:MM") OR =TEXT(predicted time  actual time, "H:MM") The formula works great if the actual time is prior to or equal to the predicted time. However I cannot get a result for the time if the actual time is later than the predicted time. I need the result to be h,mm. If you can help me accomplish this I would really appriceate it. Thank you

Time formula (difference of predicted and actual time)
=IF(H4>A4,"","")&TEXT(MOD(A4H4,1),"H:MM")

Time formula (difference of predicted and actual time)
If the answer should be 3 hours, your formula gives 21 hours, Bob.
Perhaps try =IF(H4>A4,"","")&TEXT(ABS(A4H4),"H:MM")  David Biddulph "Bob Phillips" > wrote in message ... > =IF(H4>A4,"","")&TEXT(MOD(A4H4,1),"H:MM") > >  > __________________________________ > HTH > > Bob > > "deb" > wrote in message > ... >>I have a time formula in my spreedsheet.

Time formula (difference of predicted and actual time)
Thanks David, this works great for the late times but now it does not show
early times properly do you know what to do so that it will work either way.

In what situations is it not working?
Please tell us what formula you've used, what numbers were in the cells feeding into the formula, what result you got, and what result you expected.

Time formula (difference of predicted and actual time)
I am so sorry my mistake. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but I reworked it
and the formula you provided worked perfect.
