    Counting Scheduled Hours by Interval

    I am trying to create a spreadsheet that will help me track overtime hours scheduled by 30 minute intervals. The goal is to determine how many people are working overtime during each specific interval. On the first worksheet I have the week laid out Sunday through Saturday with the option to enter in the employee's start and end time, as well as a column that will calculate the total amount of hours. This concept is simple enough for me to figure out.

    The second worksheet is where I am having issues. I have the first row broken out Sunday through Saturday and the first column set to show each 30 minute interval (5:00am-11:00p). What I would like is if someone works on Sunday from 5:00am-7:00am (input on the first worksheet), the second worksheet would add a 1 to each interval they worked that day. This way if I have 5 people working on Sunday from 5:00am-7:00am it would show the number 5 on every 30 minute interval from 5:00am to 7:00am.

    I tried using a COUNTIF function, but I can only figure how how to use it for a specific cell and not a range of times. I have attached some screenshots and the file to better show what I am trying to do. Hopefully this makes sense to someone.

    Re: Counting Scheduled Hours by Interval

    Hey Jim28! So that seems to have the desired effect I need, except I noticed that the final hour (11:00pm) doesn't seem to count on the OT report. Also, great work! I wasn't sure if my explanation made sense but you nailed it!

    Try this formula in OT Report B2, copy down & across.

    =COUNTIFS(INDEX('OT Tracker'!$C$3:$W$5000,0,MATCH(B$1,'OT Tracker'!$C$1:$W$1,0)),"<="&$A2,INDEX('OT Tracker'!$C$3:$W$5000,0,MATCH(B$1,'OT Tracker'!$C$1:$W$1,0)+1),">="&$A2)

    Hey Haseeb! That worked even better except it's counting 2 instead of 1.

    Re: Counting Scheduled Hours by Interval

    Would you tell where did you get 2 instead of 1?

    If some one started at 07:00 & end at 11:00. So how do you want to count.

    Re: Counting Scheduled Hours by Interval

    I get 2 on the OT report worksheet. If I have someone work from 5am to 6pm they show up as follows:
    5:00am - 2
    5:30am - 2
    6:00am - 2

    Instead of counting 1 for every interval they work it counts 2.

    See the attached.

    Also for validation list, define a name for PT Report A2:A38, then use this name in Validation.

    Re: Counting Scheduled Hours by Interval

    Hi GrumpyRogue glad I could help.

    The 11:00pm interval will not count because if someone works to 11pm then the last 0.5 interval is from 10:30pm to 11:00pm.

    Hope this makes sense.

    Hello Haseeb and Jim! I just wanted to let you know that both of your answers helped solve my problem! I doubt I would have figured this out on my own. Thanks!
