HELP with function, possibly code!
I have this column AU5 through AU35 which contain time values. What I'd like
to do is add these values together. Is this possible? I also need to acount for cells which may or may not contain any value at all. Is this possible? ALL THE RESULTING VALUES I'VE GOTTEN THUS FAR ARE THE WRONG ONES! 00:00 is really 12 midnight, I'm not sure if we take those as 12 midnight or just a value. Anyway, can anyone out there assist? Thanks, 02:00 00:20 02:05 00:20 00:25 00:00 00:30 01:38 01:57 01:45 00:20 00:40 00:20 01:05 03:00 00:05 00:00 00:00 01:00 00:45

You mst tell what you expect and how you came up with this value.If the list consisted of a single value like 00:00, would you expect the sum to be 12? What about the sum of 00:00 and 00:00 or 00:00 and 00:20 ? /Fredrik

Fredrik:
Yes, the 00:00 would be 12 and the 00:20 would be 12:20 (12 hrs and 20 mmins). Hope this helps. Looking forward to your solution. Thanks, "Fredrik Wahlgren" wrote: "Jay" wrote in message ...

It also equals 12. These are periods of time (durations from one to another,
Beginning to End) for a production process. They folks I work for decided to use Excel and Excel does not seem to like these time values much. HELP! Thanks again.

Thanks, What is the total for the time values that you have provided? I can make a UDF but I want something to compare with. /Fredrik

Right now, it doesn't account for empty cells but that's easy to fix, First, I want to know whether you think this is the right value. Select ToolsMacroVisual Basic Editor.. and insert a new module. Then paste the code below. You can't have empty cells. I have attached the workbook. I use the Swedish version of Excel in case you wonder. /Fredrik Public Function SumTime(ByVal r As Range) As String Dim Items As Long Dim i As Long Dim pos As Long Dim strlen As Long Dim hours As Long Dim htemp As Long Dim mins As Long 'It is assumed that each value in the range consists of two 'numerical values separated by a : sign. The macro doesn't check 'the validity which means that it will accept something like 123:76 Items = r.Columns.Count * r.Rows.Count If 0 = Items Then SumTime = "" Exit Function End If 'Just for clarity hours = 0 mins = 0 For i = 1 To Items strlen = Len(r(i)) pos = InStr(1, r(i), ":", vbTextCompare) htemp = CLng(Left(r(i), strlen  pos)) If 0 = htemp Then hours = hours + 12 Else hours = hours + htemp End If mins = mins + CLng(Right(r(i), strlen  pos)) If 60 <= mins Then hours = hours + 1 mins = mins  60 End If Next i SumTime = CStr(hours) & ":" & CStr(mins) End Function

They folks I work for decided to use Excel and Excel does not seem to like these time values much. HELP! Thanks again. I think we need to know how these time periods are being entered and computed. What you want to do seems simple enough, but if 00:00 represents a period of time in Excel, it would ordinarily represent a multiple of 24 hours (including 0). If, in your template, it is representative of only 12 hours, there is something going on that I don't understand. How do you represent a production process that lasts more than 12 hours? If you are entering start and stop times, or start and stop dates and times, to compute and sum up a set of time periods is simple. I suspect you are having a problem with either formatting, or with data entry. ron
