    Adding hours together

    Hello, I am new to doing complicated excel worksheets.

    However there is something I have to figure out.

    I have a time sheet - within the time sheet I have Employee # (A2) and Employee name (B2). I also have there start time (E2) and end time (F2), I have excel calculating the hours the employee worked (G1)

    Down in the spreadsheet I have Employee # (A21) and Employee Name (B21) and total hours (C21)

    There can be many rows that have the same employee # and name with more hours.

    I need to write an if statement that says if A21 equals any number in column A I need those hours to be calculated together c21

    Any help would be appreciated

    Re: Adding hours together

    I am going to load my spreadsheet because I don't think I was able to explain myself as well as I needed to

    The cell in purple is where I want the hours to be calculated

    The cells in in blue is where I want the numbers to match

    The cells in yellow is what I want added to the cell in purple if the cell in blue matches that employee number

    I hope all this makes sense

    Thanks

    Re: Adding hours together

    =SUMIF($A$2:$A$16,A21,$G$2:$G$16)

    That's the correct formula.

    What's the problem?

    Re: Adding hours together

    The problem is that the formula is showing when I go out of the cell. The numbers are not showing like they should just the formula that I posted. The formula is showing up in the window but in the cell I see ######

    Re: Adding hours together

    Worked OK for me.

    Try this...

    Enter the formula in the cell
    Format the cell as [h]:mm
    Press function key F2
    Press Enter

    Re: Adding hours together

    I might be pressing my luck but is there a way to have excel enter the name that goes with that number down in the bottom part automatically

    Re: Adding hours together

    Looks like you want it in B21 (based on your posted sample file).

    Re: Adding hours together

    I have one more question. I am adding the hours together at the bottom. Unless there is a number in every cell, excel will not add the numbers for me. Is there a
    way to get around this.

    Thank you
