Calculating Overtime (after 40 hours worked)

1. Calculating Overtime (after 40 hours worked)

I need a formula to calculate overtime, after a work week of 40 hours.

for example: if an employee works 10 hours a day we would not count towards overtime until the employee completes a 40 hour work week.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Thanks,
YV

2. Calculating Overtime (after 40 hours worked)

A1: Hours
B1: (number of hours worked....eg 42)

A2: Overtime
B2: =MAX(B1-40,0)

If B1: 42
B2 returns 2

Does that help?

I'm having trouble with my Overtime Hours column (I).
I can't figure out how to get it to show just the overtime for that day.
I have attached the xlsx file as well as a photo of the table as is.

The formula for that column is: =IF(ISBLANK(D20),0,(MAX(H20-40,0)))
I want it to subtract the previous cell before it, but every time I do it returns a value error with this formula:
=IF(ISBLANK(D20),0,(MAX(H20-40,0)-I5:I6)) Then the I6 increases

The ultimate goal is for a spreed sheet that can calculate employee wage with a single employee that has two separate wages
that shares the same set of 40 hours for that week in a biweekly setup with an on call bonus added at the end of the week.
