    I need help calculating time and formatting a cell based on results.

    Hello forum

    I need your help solving an excel question. I need a formula that will calculate the columns as follow:

    If schedule date, schedule time and transmitted time columns values fall within the range of Line start date, line end date, line start time and line end time columns then show transmitted time cell is green otherwise display cell in red.

    EX:
    Line Start date Line end date Line start time Line end time Schedule date Schedule time Transmitted time
    11/1/2019 11/3/2019 23:00:00 28:00:00 11/2/2019 23:27:05 23:27:00

    Note that our hours go from 9:00 to 32:00

    Can you please help me with this question? Uploaded TXT file for better viewing of the collumns

    Thanks a bunch!

    Welcome to the forum.

    A text file is of no use to us - please upload a workbook (desensitise it first).

    Re: I need help calculating time and formatting a cell based on results.

    I created a helper column in column A.
    This column is doing the comparison of scheduled date/time and scheduled date/transmitted time vs. Line Start Date/Line Start Time and Line End Date/Line End Time.
    If the scheduled fall in between start and End it returns a TRUE, if not a FALSE
    Then i added conditional Formatting to see if True then green, if False then Red

    This is the formula that is in column A which is your helper column.
    =IF(AND(AND(N2+O2>=I2+K2,N2+P2>=I2+K2),AND(N2+O2<=J2+L2,N2+P2<=J2+L2)),TRUE,FALSE)
