Formula To Calculate How Many Hours Minus 30 Mins For Lunch

Jan 12, 2009

If a person does a full day I want the formula to calculate how many hours minus 30 mins for lunch i.e. 7:30 - 4:00 = 8 hours. I have done this and it works fine, the problem comes when a person does a half day i.e. 7:30 - 11:30, this will read 4.5 hours. If this is the case I don't want the 30mins deducted so it should be 4.0 hours worked.

I have high lighted a column in the work sheet (yellow) whereby the user puts an 'x' in the appropriate cell if they are working a half day.

The probem is I cannot incorperate the two formulas in one cell (the Actual hours cell) I have the one formula in the actual hours cell and the other bolted on the end thus giving two different readings.

Concatenate Formula Not Taking Decimal Places/currency Sign

May 26, 2009

i have lets say a table with rows that contain the following data.

SKU - PRICE - SALEPRICE - DESCRIPTION - SALEDESCRIPTION

What I am trying to do, is to make a concat formula that says:

SALEDESCRIPTION = DESCRIPTION+price was+PRICE+now+SALEPRICE

In essence so that i can simply pull down the formula, and all our product descriptions have 'special offer, was xx (price) is now xx (sale price).

This works fine, except that in the SALEDESCRIPTION, the amounts from the price and saleprice fields are being brought over without decimal places and without currency symbol.

I have tried formatting those two columns as currency or accounting but neither works.
