    Time Ranges

    Hello,

    My work sheet contains occurances that take place at certain times of the day. My spreadsheet contains 2000 rows. Each row is an occurance. Each occurance has a particular time stamp associated with the occurance.

    I'm attemtping to evaluate if the time of day falls into a time range. When I evaluate the time 07:31, this time would fall into the 0700-0800 time range. If the time was 09:31, it would fall into the 0900-1000 time range, etc. Consequently, I need to evaluate each specific time and return the range that this time would fall into.

    The time stamp is in column A and there are 2000 rows. I'd like to return the time range "0700-0800" or "0800-0900", or "0900 - 1000" etc in column F

    Thanks

    Try:

    =TEXT(A2,"hh")&"00-"&TEXT(A2+"1:00"+0,"hh")&"00"

    where A2 houses timestamp
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    This worked. Thanks

    How would the formula change if it was simply a number range?

    Thanks

    Excelent!

    Replying so I can have this one on my CP. I need to have a look at the text function.

    My solution included a formula that concatenated 24 different if statements...

    Couldn't the formula be shortened to =TEXT(A2,"hh")&"00-"&TEXT(A2+1/24,"hh")&"00"?
