I have pivot tables where I need to look through a series of names and sum the hours and dollars charged by that person. When I try to do a pivot I can get it to read

column 1 Column 2
John Doe $4000
Mary Smith $ 500

But if I try to add the hour columns it breaks it out by the week the hours was charged

column 1 Column 2 Column 3
John Doe $2000 4
2000 4
Mary Smith $ 250 5
250 5

I want it to just give me one dollar total and one hour total per employee.

1) The output of an excel duration is : 22.00:8.00:25.00 ( day:hour:minutes ) - excel cannot average and work with this number format

2) resolution - =(LEFT(L2,4))+MID(L2, FIND(":",L2)+1,4)/24+MID(L2, FIND(":",L2,7)+1,4)/1440 as an array and Custom Format the cell as [h]:mm - works perfectly.

Q: to be conistent, the initial reporting is dd:hh:mm and then I convert to hh:mm so that excel can process the data. How can I convert from hh:mm to dd:hh:mm so that the excel report can be consistent in presenting the data to senior management?

In a financial environment we have a calculator which uses iteration to allow for a cost being added to loan amount where the cost is based on the total loan amount. Iteration is set to 100 iterations with max change .001

On one PC the first time the calculator is opened it gives a particular (incorrect) result. If the input cells are cleared and the data re-entered, it gives the correct result. This only happens on one particular PC. Is there some other setting , other than the iteration setting, that would cause this?

I have a spreadsheet used for calculating information based on the dates specific shifts are requested/cancelled by our clients. I have a formula for working out if a date & time of cancellation is less than 48hrs notice of the shift starting. This is because we have cancellation fees based on this.

What I have is this formula: =IF(A16="","",IF(INT(A16)-INT(G16)<2,1,"")) that returns a 1 if that shift is cancelled within 48hrs notice. This works fine but I have to now change the notice periods to the following:

edit this formula to take this into account? I figure it's using multiple IF's and changing the <2 into something else like the number of hours but I'm not sure of the exact syntax.

I am trying to write a calc for a total an amount based on a list choice Here is the Set up Fields A1 thru A255 are number 1 to 255 Fields B1 thru B255 are number 255 to 1 Field C1 is a List box set using A1 to A255 and its list Field D1 is set as the needed Calculation

When you choose a number in C1 the D1 calculation should total the amount of Fields B* to B1, * being the corrisponding B field to the A field from the list

Example C1=100 (Field A100) D1=Sum of Fields B100 to B1

to run a macro that enters a new row after each set of currencies (which have been sorted). I now need to enter a total balance cell within this empty row which calculates the total amount for each currency.

I need to do this using the SUMIF function below: SUMIF($J$3:$J$300,"L/C",$I$3:$I$300)-SUMIF($J$3:$J$300,"L/D",$I$3:$I$300)

the above basically lets me calculate the total but as no - and + signs were input it does this by recognising the 'dr' and 'cr' in the column next to the amount.

I have 2 tables, one with invoices, the other with purchase orders. I would like to have a "PO Amount Remaining" column on the invoice table that looks up the PO listed on the invoice with the PO $ amount on the PO table. Once it is matched, I would like to subtract the total invoices to give me the amount of the PO that is left. Basically I would like the "PO Amount Remaining" column right now to have $4,200 listed in each row for invoices 1 & 2.....

Is there a function, or how would I write a vba to figure out the following.

I have 86 items all with a different price, which come to a total of $348,359.33, is there a way to figure out which combination of the 86 entries will give me a total of $57,673.36

Is it possible that a cell contains both numeric and alphanumeric data and to do calculations on that? For example: if a cell conatain the value "10a" or "8.5b" etc. Would it be possible to have a column that gives me the hours worked (the numeric value in the cell) and a line that gives me the amount of people that are working on shift "a" (the alphanumeric value in the cell).

Is this at all possible? Or does that require VBA/Macros and stuff (in which case this is posted in the wrong part of the forum )

I have a report that I want the total amount (in the bottom right corner, but can vary in row number) to appear in a particular cell in the header. In the macro, I selected the cell & entered "=CTRL+End". It works in reality, but not in a macro. It returns a visual of 0.00, but "=XFB1048565" in the formular bar. How can I get the header cell to return the correct total amount?

I need a formula that calculates the total rent amount for particular dates. Example would be a formula that includes a date starting at the first of the month (October 1, 2009 to September 30, 2010) and also would include a date starting at a date later than the first (October 3, 2009 to September 30, 2010). The figures needed would be the monthly rent (ex: $1,000) and a pro rated rent amout for a lease that starts after the first of the month. The pro rated amount would also have to include the years with a leap year. I have been working on this but I know there has to be an easier way.

I need to prorate a total dollar amount by a selected number of attendees. How can I do that with code, I know the formula for excel, but how do I put that on my user form so it only does the math as a new entry is submitted? I do not want to have the formula on the spreadsheet which is my report unless there is an entry on the row, which will only be the case when a user completes the user form. I just do not want the div/# error on the sheet visible if at all possible.

I want to add the numbers of hours in a 4 week period. I have used the following formula (from this site) to total according to month but I don't seem to be able to adapt it to change it to only add hours between 2 dates or for the 28 day period. I thought maybe I should be using a SUMIF but I can't get that happening either.

I know what to do when I add them- if the number is positive then a payment is due, if its 0 then the employer is "Up to Date" But what if they pay me more than they owe? I owe them hours, how can I have excel know that there is a surplus and to deduct the future hours worked from the surplus until i've paid it off?

I have my problem in an excel spreadsheet but I don't know how to upload so you can download it for reference.

I am trying to add together the total hours for a given week.The spreadsheet is used to show the total hours worked from the signing off and on times given.

CELL C11 CORRECTLY SHOWS THE TOTAL FOR ONE DAY AS 08:30 AND F11 AS 07:30. BUT WHEN THEY ARE TOTALLED IN CELL B13 IS SHOWS 1122:00 INSTEAD OF 16:00.

I am stumped on a formula answer I am getting on a simple timesheet. The timesheet is set up with an In and Out column for each day and person for the entire month. A formula calculates their total hours worked on a daily basis, minus their lunch (30 minutes per day). So far, so good.

The trouble comes when I try to sum the hours worked for the entire month. I am getting an incorrect total. The example I am working I am summing E3:BN3, which show the employee working 15 days in a month, 12 net hours per day. 15x12=180 hours a month. My sum total is showing up as 300:00:00. It may help to know we use a 24 hour format. I have the results cell formatted as [h]:mm.

I need to sum the total hours by project between two dates. There can be multiple projects and the two dates can vary. So...

In column A are the project # (say A2 001, A3 001, A4 002, A5 003) In column B is Yes or No for each project (contract Signed?) In Column C through Z, row 1, are dates (shows the Monday of each week) In Column C through Z, row 2-5 (which corresponds to the projects 001, 001, 002, and 003 above) are the number of hours worked that week.

On a separate tab (lets call it MonthTab) is the start and end date for each month (Jan through Dec) On a separate tab I want to SUM the hours by Month for each project (so for project 001 would need to go across multiple rows), that has a Yes in column two. Therefore the hours summed For January will be taken from MonthTab and be between StartJan and EndJan.

Is there a method to calculate the total number of hours in excel. In my attached file, the excel treat the 24 hours as time and recalculate from 0 hour.

I have included my budget so helpers can see it. I am trying creating a formula on mini-dashboard on A8 (Under the total budgeted amount) that will check the total budgeted amount based on the values I enter on the categories sheet. Of course it will be controlled using the drop down menu on A2 on mini-dashboard. I thought I had this working with a sumif function but it seems to have quit working.

Refer to the attached sheet which is Daily Schedule for employee. I need a formula to add hours worked on single day in cell C2 for Monday, E2 for Tuesday, G2 for Wednesday, and so on.

Every day we have Clockin_Clockout info for each employee as shown for employee a & b.

FYI : I am using below formula to add employee hours for the week as (formula in cell R4).

This is probably a very simple problem that has me going around in circles. I am attempting to set up a time roster, where I simply want to check:

If "end-time" minus "start-time" is greater than 4:00 (hrs), then deduct 00:30 (minutes) and place that result in another cell.

If it is not greater than 4:00 (hrs) then leave unchanged. I have read thru countless examples on the Forum - but I think that such great learning is driving me mad. Although I do believe that I have the correct format [h].mm - but attempts with IF's have got me confused. This is one of those "Looking down the tunnel towards the flickering light" moments.
