# Calculate time difference to the half hour

1. ## Calculate time difference to the half hour

I am creating an employee time sheet that the put in their starting time and
ending time (From a drop down list). I would like Excel to calculate the
amount of time showing full and if need be a half hour. My problem is that
the results half only been in full hours. Such as 9 am to 5 pm comes out as
8 hours. But also 9 am to 4:30 pm also comes out as 7 hours instead of 7.5
hours.

I have tried three types of formulas with the same result:

=TEXT(F11-E11,"h")

=(INT(F10-E10*24))

=hour(f10-E10)

Any ideas on getting the results I need?

Thanks,
Ken

try this
=ROUND(A1/TIME(0,30,0),0)*TIME(0,30,0)

Okay, This seemed to work.

=((TEXT(F10-E10,"h:mm"))-INT(TEXT(F10-E10,"h:mm")))*24

Anyone see a problem with this?

Thanks,
Ken

5. ## Re: Calculate time difference to the half hour

Ken,

It's unclear what format you want the result to be in.

Try:

=INT((F10-E10)*48)/2

and format as a number, or

=INT((F10-E10)*48)/48

and format as time.

Assumption is that your times are entered as Excel times; eg. 9 AM; 4:30 PM;
etc.

If you wish to round to the nearest 30 minutes, then:

=ROUND((EndTime-StartTime)/TIME(0,30,0),0)*TIME(0,30,0)

If you wish to round up to the next 30 minutes, so that 7:01 --> 7:30, then

=CEILING(EndTime-StartTime,TIME(0,30,0))

and format as [h]:mm.

If you wish to convert either of the above to decimal numbers, then multiply
the result by 24:

=24 * ROUND((EndTime-StartTime)/TIME(0,30,0),0)*TIME(0,30,0)

or

=24 * CEILING(EndTime-StartTime,TIME(0,30,0))

Yes. Ask 1 question. 2 questions. Ask 10 questions. But you need so
much help that you set up email accounts for each forum where you
post ask questions so that you can keep it all straight.

You run a business http://www.kivins.com charging people for the free
yourself the way we had to? I went to school, put in time, paid money
to learn.

We all give help to each other, but you just take. From us, from your
