    Time sums after midnight

    Hey Everyone,

    I was stopping by because I have tried hundreds of formulas and cannot get anything that occurs after midnight to work correctly. If you can please take a look at my attachment! I am building a calculator that will feed another database how many members we will have in the building base off of multiple variables. Any help you can give will be much appreciated!

    "cannot get anything that occurs after midnight to work correctly."

    What does this mean? Can you be more specific about what result you want, and what you are getting instead that is wrong? It looks like you are calculating an End Time based on start time and other variables, and you are getting valid results after midnight for some of them. I don't see anything wrong here.

    Yes,

    If you look in the enter field between column B and N everything is working fine. This issue occurs in the next section that sums in columns AE:BB. This area is to calculate the amount of hours
    we have by team member type during any given hour while removing times for break, lunches, etc. It works perfectly except when the end time in Column K goes to midnight or later. Once K goes
    midnight or later then everything under that section (by employee type)in AE:BB calculates incorrectly.

    Re: Time sums after midnight

    The problem is that you are using time of day for the start and ends times without coupling it with a date. In the example of Coordinator, the end time of 12:40 AM comes before the start time of 4:00 PM, so the arithmetic doesn't work.

    To fix this, you have to calculate the end time so that it is in the following day if it goes past midnight. Change the formula in K5 to this

    and copy down the column. Your formula was more complicated than it needed to be so this simplifies it. Also, instead of just using TIME to determine a time, it adds the time increment to the start time so that if it rolls past midnight, it counts an extra day. Your display format just shows the time so this will look the same to the user as what you have now, but your results farther to the right will be correct.

    Awesome that worked perfect! I truly appreciate your assistance.
