# Get Excel To Calculate Elapsed Time Between Two Dates?

Apr 3, 2014
I have been trying to get excel to calculate elapsed time between two dates using mostly what I've read from other elapsed time posts. But I am clearly missing a step. I'm trying to streamline my process for taxes.

I want to take a time in the format of " yy/mm/dd hhmm " example: 1

3/04/24 2245 ( note its a 24hr clock) 13/04/24 2245 would represent 2013 April the 24th at 10:45PM.

------- A --------------- B -------------------- C

13/04/24 2245 ------13/05/24 0900 ---------[display hrs elapsed] <-- currently get #name?

I have custom formatted A and B to yy/mm/dd hhmm and formatted c to [h]:mm

When you enter b-a in column c you get #name?

If its easier to have the date and time into separate columns I can give that a shot, I was just trying to make it as streamlined as possible for copy past.

I need to calculate the time elapsed between start and finish dates. I've figured the TODAY function, as explained here but I'm referring solely to dates in cells. How to?

I have been asked to make some ammendements to a workbook currently in use.

I have to calculate elapsed time, and my formula is giving me odd results. I have a start time (cell B5), and an end time (cell F5). The formula being used was =IF(F5>0,((F5-B5)*24)) which gave the correct result. The cell is formatted as general. It didn't alot for the situation where the end time has not happened yet.

I changed the formula to =IF(F5>0,((F5-B5)*24),(K5-B5)*24) where cell K5 is the current time. The results are coming out with 6 - 9 decimal places. It makes no sense as I've tried setting the times to be exactly 24 or 48 hours to the minute. I've also tried replacing K5 in the formula to now(),

I am trying to build a spreadsheet to calculate how many hours have elapsed between to entries; start time (H10) e.g. 9:15 AM and end time (I10) e.g. 12:15 PM. The formula that I am using in the calculation cell field (J10) is (I10-H10+(I10<H10))*24. This formula works great till I wish to include in an IF statement. What I would like is if the total hours calculated with the formula (I10-H10+(I10<H10))*24 is less than 4, return 4 (hours) otherwise the value. As well if there is no start time nor end time entered then return zero.

I've being trying t calculate an excel formula to work out a order turnaround time based on opening hours.

Example: The store is open from 8 am to 6pm monday to friday, I need to get a formula to work out how long it took from the time the order was logged until it was completed, during the course of the working day - this works fine but if the order was received on 06/12/07 at 5:20 pm then was finally completed by 7/12/07 at 11:55 the next day I need to figure out how to take into consideration of non working hours during that time. (time from 6pm to 8 am next day

example 2 - if order was sent on the 06/12/07 at 01:30pm and completed at 06/12/07 4:30 then I know its taken 3 hours to complete

example 3 - if the order was sent on the 06/12/07 at 5pm and completed next day at 07/12/07 at 10am - then I know it took 3 hours to complete

1. Calculate the time that has elapsed between 2 times in both hours:min (hhmm) and total mins (mm)

2. Compute the day of the week (mon-fri) a particular date fell on. I really only need to know if the date fell on a weekday or weekend.

table { }td { padding: 0px; color: windowtext; font-size: 10pt; font-weight: 400; font-style: normal; text-decoration: none; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: bottom; border: medium none; white-space: nowrap; }.xl63 { font-size: 12pt; } 1= M-F

2=S-S

3. How to write an If statement that assign a value to time based off this chart:

table { }td { padding: 0px; color: windowtext; font-size: 10pt; font-weight: 400; font-style: normal; text-decoration: none; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: bottom; border: medium none; white-space: nowrap; }.xl63 { font-size: 12pt; } 1= AM (7-1459)

2=PM (15-2259)

3= MN (23-659)

Dataset is 220K rows. A small subset follows.

Using an array calc with criterions Day = 1 and Hour = 1 summed on Elapsed Time returns 81 with an average of 11.57 for 7 events of which there are 5 distinct dates.

The function =SUM(IF(D2:D14<>"",1/COUNTIF(D2:D14,D2:D14))) returns the number of distinct dates in the dataset ie 7.

Is it possible to combine these two methods to create an average of elapsed time by day and hour using a denominator of distinct dates for only that combination of dimensions?

I have attempted to calculate an item in a pivot table using a different denominator without success.

day Hour Date Elapsed Time

1 0 5/03/2009 25

1 0 5/03/2009 24

1 1 5/03/2009 23

1 1 7/03/2009 11

1 0 7/03/2009 5

1 1 8/03/2009 2

1 1 8/03/2009 8

1 1 9/03/2009 4

1 1 9/03/2009 17

1 0 9/03/2009 22

1 1 10/03/2009 16

1 2 13/03/2009 12

2 1 14/03/2009 15

I must produce a report that details elapsed time between two dates and times.

The duration can span a number of days, I need to report just the elapsed working time, I can calculate the days with "NETWORKDAYS" but how can I calculate only the elapsed working time 08:00 to 17:00?

I would like to develop code that does the following:

- I first manually move to a cell

- Press a key combination (CTRL+T for example)

- Press the same key combination, the elapsed time from the first press to the last press is entered into that cell in seconds.

It would be nice if the cell showed the time incrementing live, but that is not required.

I am working with an amortization table and need to work out the elapsed time to amortize the loan.

Currently the worksheet is working fine and calculates the end date of the loan but the length of the column varies depending on the scenario.

I need a formula to calculate the time that elapses between the first date and last date.

The data starts in cell b13 and the last date could appear in pretty much any cell below that, so the formula will need to look for the last valid entry.

I am using excel 2003.

In our sql server table, we have a field of type DATETIME. This field is populated by a vendor product with the elapsed time of an event.

We created a SQL Server view of this column and other columns of info joined together from several tables.

Then we create in Excel 2010 a new spreadsheet with a data connection to the SQL Server, instance, and view that we created.

Excel 2010 displays each of the columns in our view.

The elapsed time column appears as "dd hh:mm:ss". However, when we click on a cell to look at its formatting, Excel lists it as general.

We want to calculate the average time in this column.

We go down below the data, click on a cell, and insert =Average(C2:C17215) and we get an error saying dividing by zero.

We have 17,000+ rows of data, so there is no divide by zero math going on here. Each row in this column has data, so there are no blank cells.

We have spent some time web searching. We then tried various methods of calculating this. Nothing has worked. In most cases, we get the divide by zero. We tried some solutions that mention using an array forumula, but that just changed the error to an invalid value error.

I have a macro that runs through about 40,000 records which can be quite time consuming. I currently have a status bar that shows the percent of work complete, but I'd like to add something that shows an estimate of how much time is remaining and how much time has passed. Below is the first loop in my code that uses the progress bar. You'll see that I modified the progress bar to include "Label 2" which shows the current record of the total record count, I'd like to add "Label 3" to show something like "2:30 elapsed, 1:15 remaining".

I'm using Excel 2010 on Windows 7 (64 bit).

HTML Code:

Sub IdentifyGS()

POData.Activate

For CurrentRow = 2 To LastRow

[Code] .......

I am not sure that I can do this, but here is what I would like to do. I have a worksheet that I initial when I start a job in on cell and then when I finish in another cell. What I's like is to have a macro running in the back ground that will tell me the total elapsed time from when I started to when I finished.

I thought this would be simple but I can't figure it out. I need to subtract the time between two cells. For example:

Cell A1: 6/6/2007 3:00:00 PM

Cell A2: 6/7/2007 2:00:00 PM

Result would be either 0:23 or 23 as in hours.

I have two Rows of data. Each row contains a unique Name column and separate columns for Date, Hour and Minute. I would like to calculate the Time difference in Days, Hours and Minutes between the two Dates. I’m not sure if the way I’ve set it up is the most practical. I’ll attach the spreadsheet to better explain.

I am trying to create a time stamp that shows elapsed time. So I enter my start time, and if I enter any text in cell B7, return the elapsed time in A7 based off of start time in A6. I have attached an example workbook.

In A1 I have 35 min elapsed time and need to change it to time as a portion of an hour. It reads the 35 min as TIME, therefore I am currently using

=IF(A1>=0.5,A1-0.5,A1)*24. Output is .58, which is perfect.

(output column formatted as a number)

Likewise 3:28 becomes 3.47.

attached is an example of a timesheet we use.

now after lengthy discussions the comany say its not 'in their interest' to use acess so i'm stuck with excel on this one.

I need to sum a column on many critiera, which i feel maybe a job for the trusty old =SUMPRODUCT. But thing is i need to sum a column based on a date range, Rate, Day.

I have manually typed in the number i think it should produce but as far as formulas go

1st off need to calcualte date range, which is situated on the top of the spreadsheet.

2nd some how tell the formula that Normal overtime is either classed as rate 1 Saturdays classed as 1.5 and sundays and bank holidays classed as 2.

I am trying to figure a way to search for a cell that has a specific date and time range. There are several cell titles pending on the activity. I want to find a cell that has a time ** 7:30-15:30 , 15:31-17:30, 17:31-20:30. The end result is to calculate the activity between those time periods based on the data cells.

Example

If the date searched time field ** the activity ranges is 1635 I need to split the time and credit the activity time in the 730-1530 time and the rest on the 15:31-17:30 time

I have been able to do it on a single labor group based on time alone, but when I try to add the DATE to it my numbers go null. Eventually i will need to add 11 labor groups daily for weeks at a time .

In one column I'll have a list incrementing in 1w,2w,3w,1month and I want to be able to count the number of days that have elapsed till the latest cell. Right now I'm just winging it by saying there's always 31 days in one month using a COUNTA function, but I need it to be accurate.

I need to determine a formula which will allow me to calculate a future date based upon a current date with varying time periods.

For example:

I have a bill which is paid on the 15th and last business day of each month. I would like to be able to see the next due date regardless of what day of the week it is.

I have a bill which is paid every other Tuesday. I would like to know the next due date without having to enter +14 for every due date in the future. In other words, it is preferable to be able to open the spreadsheet and automatically see the next due date, not use autofill to repeatedly add +14 to a previous date which would limit the # of future due dates that could be calculated.

I have a bill which is paid on the last business day of each month, not the last Friday of each month. I would need excel to return a value for the last day of the month which = Monday-Friday, regardless of what day of the week it may be as long as it isn't Saturday or Sunday(holiday exclusion would be nice but not required).

I have a document in which I am trying to determine the length of time between a start date & time and a finish date & time. The format of the time/date cells is

mm/dd/yy hh:mm:ss

Basically, I am just subtracting the first cell from the second. This works fine as long as both dates are in the same day, such as

START FINISH ELAPSED

08/20/14 23:42:22 08/20/14 23:43:59 0:01:37

However, if I have a situation such as

START FINISH

08/18/14 23:00:15 08/19/14 0:03:22

the ELAPSED cell fills with ######## with a tooltip stating that "dates and times that are negative or too large display as ######." The actual result in this example should be 1:03:07.

How do I get consistency amongst my resulting formulas?

I am trying to determine the amount of off duty time from the last stop time to the next start time. The object is to reset another column of hours (not shown here) to 60 hours only if there has been 34 hours of off duty time prior to the next start time.. I have posted this problem previously but did not explain very well I need to accomplish. The start and end times ( E & F) are formatted as hh:mm AM/PM and the Work time and the other columns are formatted as [hh]:mm. Where my formula fall short is when there are blank days indicating weekends or days off ...

I am trying to find some simple code that will display elapsed time starting from execution of a macro to a certain point where a message box is displayed at which time the elapsed time should pause awaiting user interaction. Once the user has responded to the message box prompt the timer should continue on from its paused state ceasing at the end of the macro. I would also like the displayed box showing the timer to remain visible displaying minutes and seconds and continuously incrementing even though screen updating is turned off within the macro. (The macro switches sheets a number of times) and the elapsed time box needs to positioned at bottom left of screen.

How to find the elapsed time between two times, but I need the start time in this instance.

Attached is my spreadsheet for a callcenter in which has exported data showing what time the data is exported and how long someone has been their state if they are out of adherence. I have selected fields explaining what I am wanting where on the spreadsheet.

I am wanting to subtract the elapsed time in MM:SS from the End Time which is in HH:MM AM/PM (Imported as text). I do not mind moving these to separate cells to the left to format them correctly, I want to be able to right click in A1, paste, and the rest trickle.

I am having difficulties subtracting the time to get the start time.

I have been currently working with Data in which involves time over 24 hours and I am trying to find the sum of these numbers.

An example would be the following :

4,889:38:33 +4,711:28:37 + 4,851:11:26 .

Of course, I have removed the comma and changed format, this did correct the issue. However, any way to find the sum with the comma still involved.

I have a worksheet with checkboxes in each cell in A11:A110 as well as O11:O110. When a checked, the current time appears in the corresponding cell, using this code for example, A11 :

Private Sub CheckBox1_Click()

*

*** Range("A11").Select

*** ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=NOW()"

*** Range("A11").Select

*** Selection.Copy

*** Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _

******* False, Transpose:=False

*** Range("A11").Select

*** Application.CutCopyMode = False

End Sub

This system is used to track time elapsed. Example, the first event of the day begins, so I click the checkbox in A11 and the time appears in A11. When the event ends, I click the checkbox in O11 and the time appears in O11.

Now what I would like to modify is the following:

After clicking A11, if 30 minutes have elapsed and I still have not checked the end time in O11, I would like the whole row to highlight in red, a pop up message box should advise me that 30 minutes have elapsed. I could click OK and remove the message box. The whole row remains in red highlight until I finally check the checkbox in O11.

Obviously I'd copy the code for each row.

I assume the code goes with the checkbox's code for A11? Also, is it possible for a cell to flash? (highlighted white, then red, then white, red, etc...)
