# Forumla For The Calculating Total TIME But To Give A Value As 0 When Text Is Typed

Apr 14, 2009

I have set up a spreadsheet to calculate time as followed:

A1 - Start Time
B1 - Finish Time
A2 - Hours Worked:

=IF(B1<A1,B1+1,B1)-A1

C1 - Start Time
B1 - Finish Time
C2 - Hours Worked:

=IF(D1<C1,D1+1,D1)-C1

and so on.........

## Forumla To Give A Starting Number And Take One Away Each Time A Code Or Codes Are Dislayed In A Cell Range

Mar 22, 2009

In 1 cell i need a forumla to give me a starting number and take one away each time a code or codes are dislayed in a cell range. Something like this

A1 = 23 days or any number days i needed

Cell range B1:C52

every time a selected 1 or 2 letter code appears in the cell range i want A1 to subtract 1 day from the starting number, i would need it to subtract half a day if one code appears ie HD, the codes may be P, OT, HD

## Calculating Total Time For Individual With Multiple Start / End Times

Feb 12, 2014

I am trying to come up with a formula that calculates total time someone has worked in a day. The scenario is an individual will work at a home and start working with an individual. Their start/end times look like this in a pivot:

Min Start Max Start Min End Max End
Location A+Counselor A 8:56 AM4:01 PM 1:11 PM 7:00 PM
Location A+Counselor B 12:00 AM 8:00 PM 6:00 AM 11:59 PM
Location B:Counselor C 7:00 AM 12:00 PM 2:00 PM 4:00 PM
Location C+Counselor D 8:00 AM 8:00 AM 4:00 PM 4:00 PM

Some people work split shifts while others work a straight shift. The formula I created was this:

=IF(OR(B9=C9,E9=D9,D9=C9),E9-B9,IF(D9>C9,((E9-D9)+(C9-B9)),IF(C9>D9,((D9-B9)+E9-C9),"New Formula Needed")))*24

(I use a pivot table to show max min for start and end times)

This works great except for the individuals that have multiple punches during the same time frame. The one scenario I am having trouble solving for is when someone punches in more than once during their shift displaying. This occurs when a counselor starts a shift working with one person but then adds another person mid shift. An example of this could be:

Location A+Counselor E Min Start Max Start Min End Max End
Consumer 1 1:00 PM 1:00 PM 8:30 PM 8:30 PM Total Time: 7.5
Consumer 2 12:00 PM 12:00 PM 2:35 PM 2:35 Pm Total Time: 2.6

Pivot says that they worked a total of 10.1 because it is grabbing the max and mins and calculating. The actual total time worked is 8.5 hours in reality.

The raw data comes in like so:

Location Counselor Consumer Start Time End Time
A A A 1:00 PM 8:30 PM
A A B 12:00 PM 2:35 PM
A A C 12:00 PM 5:00 PM

Is this solvable with a formula?

## Calculating Total Time In One Sheet And Pasting Results Automatically In Another Sheet

Apr 21, 2014

I have an excel workbook which requires us to enter the log details of some sites and then a report is generated using these logs (report attached) . [URL] .......

I want that excel should automatically identify the site and calculate its outage with the following formula:

Outage %age= Total Outage(min)/100.80
and add it in the respective column while identifying the outage.

e.g. if outage is of power then the calculated %age outage should be pasted in the power outage column in front of the respected site.

e.g. in the sheet attached above the first row in the first sheet states that SKU2326 was down for 50 mins

Now %age outage will be
Outage %age= 50/100.80
Outage %age=0.496

Now as the outage is related to power so this outage should go into power column in sheet number 3 labelled as "Network Total Up time Week#17"

Now the next time SKU2326 becomes down it should be added with this 50 mins and the outage calculated as presented above.

## Spreadsheet That Will Give A Total Number For Each

Aug 7, 2009

I have a table with 5 columns and approx. 85-90 rows.

Column A has the Branch name in it e.g. Beavers or Bedfont (11 Branches in total)
Column B has User Type - Adult, Child, Guest (Adult), Guest (Child), Catalogue
Column C has Session Type - Booking, Drop-In
Column D has Total Session Time (mins) - which gives a number in minutes of the total session time used
Column E is not needed

I currently get a calculator and add up e.g all of the adult Bookings for Beavers and enter them onto a Report Sheet, then all of the Adult Drop-Ins for Beavers etc. I want an Excel Spreadsheet that will give me a total number for each so I can do away with the calculator.

I am thinking of creating a new sheet with a number of cells that have a formula similar to this

=IF(AND(A2="Beavers",B2="Adult",C2="Booking"),E2,0)

But I want it to see Adult, Guest (Adult) and Catalogue as the same thing / and I want it to pick up Child and Guest (Child) as the same thing.

## How Do I Count Shirt Sizes And Give A Total Of Each?

Jun 23, 2009

Sorry for the question. Normally I find answers to my excel questions by going through the help tab or by searching on Google. However, I don't even know what question to ask on this one!?!

Basically I have created a spreadsheet with several columns, but I have one column that lists the shirt size (YS, YM, YL, AS, AM, AL, XL, 2X, 3X) of each person. Is there a formula that I can create that will tabulate the number of sizes (i.e. AS=2, AM=7, etc.)?

In previous years I made a column for each size, and simply placed a "1" in the correct column, and had excel just add the 1's from each column. However, that takes more time and space. I was hoping to streamline it this time around.

## Pulling Specific Text Within Text In Which Information Is Typed Differently?

## Replacing Text Just Typed?

Mar 6, 2014

I'm currently building a large spreadsheet which will require numeric codes to be within certain cells. At present these cells are filled with alphabetical codes and the person using them has little knowledge of the numbers, is there a simple way for them to type in the alphabetical code and it to then auto-replace it with the numberical?

## VLOOKUP And Still Have Typed Text In Cell

Oct 27, 2008

I was wondering if there would be a way to use vlookup and still be able to type text in the same cell. For example, if the vlookup gives me a result of 123. I want it to also pull from a different cell that I've typed in 321. So the resulting cell would show 321-123 or 321 123. I have attached a sample sheet. On sheet two where the 3 items are, I want it to display 321-123 for item 1, 321-234 for item 2, and 321-345 for item 3. The 321 would be dependant on what I type into B1 on the first sheet.

## If Certain Text Typed Into Each Of Two Cells - Result Will Appear In Third Cell

Can I put a formula in and if so, what formula would it be?

## Change Formatting On One Sheet When Text Is Typed In Another

Jul 28, 2007

I am trying to have one sheet with company names on it and another as a schedule. I have about 20 companies that I need to list on the main schedule sheet. Is there anyway when I type a company name in one sheet, when it copies that cell to the schedule sheet, format that cell to a specified format? I know conditional formatting will work, but it only allows 3. I need around 20. I would just like to change the background color of that cell when the name is typed in.

## Auto Updating AND Manually Typed Permanent Text In One Cell?

is there a formula which can locate instances of same text even though due to spaces it may look different? for example, "bad apple" and "badapple" are essentially the same.

## Calculating Total Forecasting

Jul 15, 2009

For example I have two months and I want to know how to calculate the forecasted Jun 09 total: ...

## Calculating Running Total?

Jul 3, 2014

I want to calculate a running total (so add a new value to its original value). For example, cell A1 is the one I will be changing daily, and cell B2 is the one that I want a running total in. So if I start with A1 being 5, B2 should be 5. If the next day I type in 3 into A1, B2 should now read 8. However I want to do this for a column length, not just cells A1 & B1. So column B would be the running total of the column A values. If A2 is 3 one day and the next it is 6, B2 should on the second day read 9. And on and on down the columns.

I tried doing this without VBA using iterations, but that didn't work. Every time I did that it would add values going down, which was weird cuz none of the cells referenced the cell above it. I didn't know if they would work since I have multiple sheets in this file. (I'm only calculating the running total in one sheet, the others aren't doing anything special.) I need all the sheets in my file and I didn't know if VBA modules are sheet specific/ if you need to be sheet specific when coding.

Another question I have (since I know nothing about VBA) is how do modules work? Do you need to turn them on in the Excel spreadsheet itself? Or when you save it does it just automatically apply itself to the file its attached to?

On another note, how to do this WITHOUT VBA, that would be like 100x more fantastic.

## Calculating Cumulative Total?

Jan 19, 2007

in my worksheet i have different kind of items with its cost. in my case which is not in order, that is, the order of items can be AABAACCBA. I want to calculate Cumulated Total on each row. but i am not sure how to achieve this by conditional formula? the values in my sheet looks like the following,

Date ITEM TYPE AMOUNT Cumulated Total
10-Jan-07 BookA1010 -value(Book)
11-Jan-07PenA515 -value(Book+Pen)
12-Jan-07TableB1515 -value(Table)
13-Jan-07PencilA2035 -value(Book+Pen+Pencil)
14-Jan-07ChairB2540 -value(Table+Chair)
15-Jan-07SofaB3575 :
16-Jan-07RoseC2020 :
17-Jan-07Calc...A3065 :
18-Jan-07JasminC1030 -value(Rose+Jasmin)

find the attachment for reference. How to achieve this using conditional statement or lookups or someother? and i try to avoid macro.

## Formula To Give A Time Minus 15 Mins

Aug 1, 2008

i have =TIME(LEFT(F17,FIND("h",F17)-1),RIGHT(F17,2),0). which gives a time in the format 9:30PM, or 10:30AM etc. How would i change the formula to give me a time minus 15 mins. Eg, if the above formula gave me 8:45PM, i would want it to show 8:30PM

## Sum Of Lap Times In Order To Give Race Time At Any Lap

Apr 13, 2009

=C4+(0.3*(C5-((C2-1)*C3)))

Where C4 is 'Qualifying time', C5 is 'Starting fuel', C2 is 'Lap number' and C3 is 'Fuel consumption'. I also plan to make the 0.3 a changeable variable.

I'm not fussed as to whether or not this is a realistic function that would work in a real race, it's only hypothetical. However I would like to have a function that would give me the over all race time at any given lap, not just the lap time for it.

## How To Give Comments To Multiple Cells At A Time

Feb 4, 2012

columns consist of 1,2

I selected only 1 value of cells

I want to add comments to all the 1 value cells by selecting all 1 by shift + ctl +down

I can put same comments to all the cells?

If you want to have the same comment applied on many cells you could apply it to a single cell, then use the copy and paste special tool bar commands (under Edit) In Paste Special select "Comments" but value is going of that cell.

## Calculating A Total Of Different Cells With Less Or More Values

Jan 23, 2014

I'm trying to calculate total occurrences of a given month. I have included the spreadsheet for reference with totals.

I only want to calculate when the Policy column has a "N". If it has a "Y" I do not need to do anything

If the Policy has a "N" I want the formula to look at the V and P columns and give me a total in the Total Occurrence column. I want it to look at the entire month for a grand total.

If the V or P column has a 4 or less it should equal 0.5, if it has a value is between 4 and 10 it would equal 1. So in the Total Occurrence column should calculate the all of the 0.5 and 1's based on each set of columns and give a total. In the example that I have given in the spreadsheet the total in the Total Occurrence column would be 2 because Jan. 1 has a N and a 8 which equals 1 and Jan. 3 has a N and a 4 which equals 0.5 and Jan. 5 has a N and a 4 which equals 0.5 for a total of 2 occurrences.

## Calculating Total Hours Between Dates

## Calculating Total Number Of Hrs In A Roster

Jan 2, 2007

I am working on this for two days , but I got stuck on the last step. I have a roster for about 35 employees. Calculating the daily hrs was not a problem. But I am doing the roster for one week. And I want employee wise total of hrs worked. I am quite confused as the "sum" formula works for some totals and for others it does not, although all the cells are in the right format. I tried to change the "result" cell to "number" and multiply by 24 to get the hr total as a number, but it does not work.

for example "SUMIF(E1:E57,"rafik",H1:H57)" ( this is the formula for calculating hrs for "rafik" on monday. the result cell is in "hh:mm" format and gives me the right total.

Likewise upto sunday the totals are right. What I want to do is calculate the total number of hrs from mon to sun. This seems to be impossible. the formula =SUM(H60:AL60) in a dd:mm format does not work, even =SUM(H60:AL60)*24 in a "number format" does not work.

I have tried "excel help" , tried to change the format but nothing works. The result should be 52 hrs and I cant get it no matter what I do.

## Count Department Names And Give Me A Total For The Returns For Each Department

Mar 9, 2009

I am producing a spreadsheet that will track returned defects. Column B is where I input the department variable. In a new table on the same sheet I need a formula that will count department names and give me a total for the returns for each department.

## Calculating Total Based On Cell Contents

Mar 14, 2009

I'd like excel to calculate 3 totals for me based on the colour and value on a worksheet.

Basically, I work for various people and they pay at different rates per hour.
I currently have a spreadsheet with their names, times, and rates (see attached for example), but I calculate the amounts paid and due manually.
If possible I would now like excel to do it.

To explain further, 'J' gives me \$10 per hour, and 'V' gives me \$5 per hour.
Cells shown in red show work done but not paid for.
Cells shown in green show work done and paid for.

I'd like excel to automatically create totals as shown on the spreadsheet, namely:
Total due: xxxx
Total paid: xxxx
Total outstanding: xxxx

At any time during the month I can be asked to take on more work - I would then enter the code into the spreadsheet for the hours requested...and I'd like the totals to be update automatically.

## Calculating Total From Number Of Minutes And Cost P/m

Aug 6, 2009

I need to calculate the total cost of outbound calls based on the total duration of outbound calls multiplied by cost per minute. For example, in a given month, the total duration of outbound calls is 261:16:34 being 216 hours, 16 minutes and 34 seconds. I have this figure in cell A1 with the format [h]:mm:ss. I then convert this to minutes in cell B1 by saying B1=A1, but having the format [m], which gives me 15676. In cell C1, I have the cost per minte value of Ł0.026. But when I apply the formula D1=B1*C1, I get Ł0.283, when 15676*Ł0.026 should in fact be Ł407.58.
