# Time sheet problems

1. ## Time sheet problems

Hi

I'm far from an expert in Excel but I'm determined to set up a timesheet for my bus driving job. However, the payment/penalty rates are complicated. For example, if I work on a "day off" I get paid time and a half for the first 3 hours, then double time for the balance.

How can I express this in a formula that will automate the process?

Any help would be gratefully received

Many thanks

Charles

Please attach a sample worksheet with some data [de-sensitized] and enter expected result [manually calculated].

To best describe or illustrate your problem you would be better off attaching a dummy workbook. The workbook should contain the same structure and some dummy data of the same type as the type you have in your real workbook - so, if a cell contains numbers & letters in this format abc-123 then that should be reflected in the dummy workbook.

To attach a file to your post,
click advanced (next to quick post),
scroll down until you see "manage file",
click that and select "add files" (top right corner).
click "select files" find your file, click "open" click "upload" click 'done" bottom right. click "submit reply"

Once the upload is completed the file name will appear below the input boxes in this window.
You can then close the window to return to the new post screen.

Hi all,

Many thanks for the reply. I've (hopefully) managed to attach a copy of the timesheet I'm working on

Assuming column G was highlighted as being "Day Off"

=ROUND(MIN(3,G24)*C16*1.5+MAX(0,G24-3)*C16*2,2)

I note in your calculation you used F16 (mistake?).

Hi John

F16 is my hourly rate, and although I hadn't started on the DOC (Day Off Cancelled) as I didn't know where to start.

Thanks again

Edit: Yes I see what you mean... should be C16. Thanks
