    Formula Needed - Calculate total hours that fall between a specific time period.

    Good afternoon All -
    This is my first time on this forum and I love the amount of information I have already learned.
    My question is:

    I have two colums - shift start and shift end.
    Shift Start Shift End
    0:00 05:00

    I need to calculate the hours between 00:00-04:00 and the amount of hours bewteen 04:00-06:00.
    For 00:00-0400 this example would show 4 hours
    For 04:00-06:00 this example would show 1 hour

    Please help as I am trying to calculate time shift premiums.

    Thank you.
    Jenny

    Jenny,
    You should be able to simply subtract the values (End-Start).

    Re: Formula Needed - Calculate total hours that fall between a specific time period.

    Can the shift start before midnight, e.g. 20:00 to 05:00?

    To cover that possibility try this formula for 0:00 to 4:00

    =(B2<A2)*"4:00"+MIN(B2,"4:00")-MIN(A2,"4:00")

    and for 04:00 to 06:00

    =(B2<A2)*("6:00"-"4:00")+MEDIAN(B2,"4:00","6:00")-MEDIAN(A2,"4:00","6:00")

    That last one can be used generically for any period

    Thank you mshale
    That formula gives me total hours but I need specific hours for specific time periods between the two times.

    Again thank you so much for trying to help.

    Happy Friday!

    Re: Formula Needed - Calculate total hours that fall between a specific time period.

    I double checked Daddy LL's formulas and they gave the correct answers (4:00 and 1:00 respectively). His formula (as written) assumes start time in A2 (0:00) and end time in B2 (5:00). Does that match your data?

    If I would need to calculate the time that fall between 22:00 and 6:00 how should I modify the formula?

    Thank you
