# Manual Time Clock For My Employees To Punch In And Out

## I currently use a manual time clock for my employees to punch in and out. I then use Excel to tally their times. This is very tedious and error prone. Is it possible to use Excel as the timeclock itself? I know that the employee can enter the time in a spreadsheet manually. But this also opens the door for error and potential dishonesty. What I am looking for is, if the employee can punch in and out by doing a keystroke and Excel uses the computer's clock to timestamp.

Time Clock And Converting To 3 Min Increment
Okay I have a basic Time clock calculation in excel (i.e.-(timeout1-timein1)+(timeout2-timein2)="Total time"). What I need to do is convert the "Total time" to be changed to 3 min increments. I don't know if that is the best way to put it but let me show you the chart for the conversions.
3 mins=.05 hrs, 6 mins=.10, etc etc etc.

So lets put this into us

A1 (timein1)= 6:42 AM
A2(timeout1)=11:30 AM
A3(timein2)= 12:00 PM
A4(timeout2)= 5:00 PM (17:00)

So A5(Total Time)=9h 48min, but I need it to equal 9.80 hrs because with the conversion, 48 mins is .80 of an hour. So how can I set up A5 (Total time) to automatically do this calculation? This website is how I would like it to work http://www.1728.com/timecard.htm

Time Related To 24hr Clock
What i try to achieve is: from 00:00hrs to 24:00hrs = 24hrs which is 1.0 day
Have made the attached spredsheet to calculate it correctly to 1 day. But if you look on the attachment the "total hrs" is saying 00:00 (it transfers to 00:00 when i am putting in 24:00). Basically how am I able to make Excel to display 24:00 insted of 00:00. Maybe there is an add ins availible like the pop up calendar but for times instead.

Time (clock) Times A Number
I have a start time in one column, end time in another and a column with the difference between the two. In another column I have profit. In the last column I have profit per hour where I divide the profit by the hours, but since one is hours and the other is a number it gives me an error.

Employees Time Sheet
I am creating a employee time sheet.

I am doing calculation.

I used total hours formula is =(I5-B5+(I5<B5))*24
and also worked hours formula is =((I5-B5-(I5<B5))-(D5-C5+(D5<C5))-(F5-E5+(F5<E5))-(H5-G5+(H5<G5)))*24

Problem is don't show the correct time of total hrs & worked hrs

Here i am attaching my timesheet format.

Time Clock Six Minute Rounding Formula
I am trying to figure out the written formula for needing this answer:

For a time clock with 6 minute rounding.

If I type in 8:20 as the arrival time, I need it to round to 8:18, so that the final time will be in tenths.

Here is the rounding:

Actual Rounded Minutes in Time Clock
:57, :58, :59, :00, :01, :02
:03, :04, :05, :06, :07, :08
:09, :10, :11, :12, :13, :14
:15, :16, :17, :18, :19, :20
:21, :22, :23, :24, :25, :26
:27, :28, :29, :30, :31, :32
:33, :34, :35, :36, :37, :38
:39, :40, :41, :42, :43, :44
:45, :46, :47, :48, :49, :50
:51, :52, :53, :54, :55, :56

Anything in the same line will round to the bolded time.

Example: I arrive to work at 8:09 and go to lunch at 11:59, it will round to 8:12 and 12:00, making my time worked 3:48 or 3.80. Then I get back from lunch at 12:59 and leave at 17:14, which will round to 13:00 and 17:12, making my time worked 4:12 or 4.2 for the 2nd 1/2 of the day and 8:00 or 8.0 hours for the day.

Time In----------Time Out----------Total Time----------Decimal Time----------Total Hours
...8:12.................12:00..................3:48......................3.80
..13:00................17:12..................4:12......................4.20..........................8.00

The problem is I want to write the actual time and not have to round everything myself and yet I need the decimal time to match what my time clock actually calculates from.

My current formula for the decimal shown above as 3.80 is this: =(HOUR(F7)*60+MINUTE(F7))/60
My current formula for the total time for the day (regular hours) is this: =IF((((E7-D7)+(I7-H7))*24)>8,8,((E7-D7)+(I7-H7))*24)
My current formula for overtime is this: =IF(((E7-D7)+(I7-H7))*24>8,((E7-D7)+(I7-H7))*24-8,0)

This is not a time clock, it is my personal copy of what my time for the week was/is, so that I can compare it to the actual time card that I have to sign off on.

Count Of Employees That Worked Within Time-frame
I am trying to do a timesheet spreadsheets that lists employees clockin and clockout times

Name Start End num hours worked
Cory 02:00 04:00 2

Countif Formula: Count Of Employees Next To The Each Manager's Name Who Login Time Is Less Then 8 Hours
I have a sheet in which in Coloum A I have manager names, then in Colum B I have list of Employees reporting to that manager, then in Column C, I have total login time of each employee which should be => 8 hours. In a new sheet, I want to get the count of employees next to the each manager's name who login time is less then 8 hours.

Time (clock) Times A Number= Very High Number?
I have time start and time end and the difference between the two times. In a third column I have profit and want to calculate the profit per hour. When I divide the profit with the time spent I get a very very high number. If I for instance type in 1 hour of work and profit 100, then I get profit per hour 2400. (profit/hours spent)

On a side note I am trying to get the numbers as 24 hours and not use am or pm and in the spread sheet I get these numbers but in the box at the top where you see the formulas etc. it shows as am and pm. I have uploaded an example.

Countdown Clock
How to add a countdown timer with start, stop, reset functions to an existing Excel spreadsheet?

World Clock
a way to turn excel into a world clock?

I am working for a company that has offices around the world, and I would like to see the time in all offices, when I am working in excel without using the internet (or spending monay on loads of wall clocks!)

Stop The Clock
Option Explicit
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
lblCloseProgress1.BackColor = &H8000000F
lblCloseProgress2.BackColor = &H8000000F
lblCloseProgress3.BackColor = &H8000000F
lblCloseProgress4.BackColor = &H8000000F
lblCloseProgress5.BackColor = &H8000000F
End Sub......................................

Each of the timdown procedures adds another segment to the countdown clock (if you don't click "Exit" before the five seconds are up, the file closes without saving. All well and good.

Now, if you DO click the "Exit" button, you get a message that the close has been aborted and, upon clearing that messagebox, the file closes anyway!

I think it's something to do with killing all remaining OnTime instructions but I don't know how to go about stopping the clock.

Protect Workbook From Ex-employees
How can I protect by workbook from ex-employees and the competition from using (I am aware of the weak security measures Excel offers, but something is better than nothing)? Each worksheet is password protected to slow down novice Excel users. However, ex-employees know the password. I was thinking if there was a way to have a changing password (which only a couple people would know) or have the worksheet look for a hidden file on our network, that one of these methods (or another) might work.

Divide A Budget Of 100k For Each Of My Employees
how I would be able to divide a budget of 100k for each of my employees.

If I have employees making anywhere from 20,446.40 - 69,659.20 How can I give each employee a portion on these funds?

For example if:
Lisa makes 20,446.40
Tom - 24,448.20
Liz - 34,854.60
Mike - 44,564.80
Jan - 62,061.48
Dan - 54,324.20

What would be the precentage that I could give each employee?

Ranking Employees By Start Date
I am trying to rank employees by seniority date. Some employees share the same seniority date. They should have the same rank. I took a formula from another thread =RANK(C2,C\$2:C\$8) and applied it to my worksheet and it worked out great except that the ranking skips the next number (in this case 4)...........

Show Latest Information For Employees
I have an excel file with 2 tabs. tab 1: Active and Tab2: tenure. Tabe 1 has the following column headers
Manager
Employee Name
Dept
Assignment
Original Start Date
End Date
Bill Rate

The Employee names may be repeating in this tab becasue whenever the employee is extended for a new assignment he has a new start date and new end date and new assignemtn and rates....This helps track the historical information about the employees. TAB2: (tenure) also has the following column headers...................

Delete Expired Dates From A List Of Employees
Basically I have a list of employees. This list is simple in that it shows their off time "From:", "Till:". in columns to the left of there name. So in Cell A:A would list all of there names.. In the example sheet I have just a few listed. To the left of their name if "From:" (column B) and then "Till:" (Column C). And this From, Till repeats itself for several columns so that multiple off-times may be made for each employee.

Basically what I want to do is delete any sets of dates that are expired (based on the "Till:" date) and shift the remaining dates over. So in other words, if Sam has a date in there of 8/1/09 to 8/1/09 meaning he is going to be off for just that day, and today's date is 8/2/09, then that "from" and "till" date of 8/1/09 to 8/1/09 would get deleted from his list and the remaining dates (if any) would get shifted to the left.

Hopefully I have provided a good enough explanation of what I am trying to do here.. Please let me know if you have any questions! I have provided an example the reflects my setup (and the setup can be changed if it makes anything easier)

Using COUNTIF To Determine # Of Employees Working Each Hour
I'm using Excel to schedule employees shifts at my restaurant. Column A is their name, Column B is their start time, Column C is their end time. I'd like to be able to count the number of employees working during any given hour of the day to assure I've got enough staffing each hour. I'm thinking it will require a COUNTIF function but I can't figure out how to make it work. I've attached a sample sheet.

Ranking Error :: Formula To Rank Employees
I had tried ranking formula to rank employees on some cirteria it was working, but if there is any tie between two employees then the next rank is not displaying for example in Ach Rank : rank 5 is missing because there is tie is between two employees is rank 4. Request your suggestion and help on this for overcoming the issue.

Formula used for ranking : =IF(B2>=75%,RANK(B2,\$B\$2:\$B\$41,1)-COUNTIF(\$B\$2:\$B\$41,"

Nested IF Formula: Calculate The Commission For My Employees
I am trying to write a command to calculate the commission for my employees. There commission is based on the spread between sale price and cost. For example:

If Profit is between \$1.00 and \$2.00 - commission = 15%
If Profit is between \$2.01 and \$4.00 - commission = 20%
If Profit is between \$4.01 and \$6.00 - commission = 25%
If Profit is > than \$6.00 then - commission = 30%

I am able to calculate the first level ex: =IF((C3-B3)<=2,"15%") It Displays the 15% in the formatted cell. (C3-B3 is the profit spread). How can I include the other 3 commission levels in the formula to display the correct commission % based on profit spread?

Record Employees Sick Days & Holidays
I have a calender with days in the columns and months in the rows. However I have 3 rows for each month. I'm using text and values combinations in the cells to record data

Example First Sheet

Feb Rows, 11,12&13
Columns C,G Dates 1st to 5th

Therefore 1st of Feb has 3 cells to enter data, ie Basic Hours, Sickness, Holiday

Currently I'm defining a name range for each month, ie DFeb. Currently I'm recording each of the rows into columns in another sheet and the date in the row, by using a Hlookup on the date and a vlookup on the month

ie Second Sheet...............

Filter Data To Show Only Employees Who Are TRUELY Tardy
I have an excel sheet with over 4,000 rows of records regarding our 80+ employees clocking in. There are three columns:

A: Date (MM/DD/YYYY)
B: Time (HH:MM:SS)
C: Employee Name

Our employees are expected to be at work (and clock-in) at or before 8am.

At first, I just filtered the data to display only rows that have a time value of between 8am and 9am (the hour when most people are tardy). However, I now realize this is not a very accurate way of reporting tardiness.

Our forklift driver, for example, almost always arrives at 7:45am, but then works around the entrance and has to scan his card (clock-in) several times throughout the morning to get back into the building. So if he's moving something outside and comes BACK inside at 8:30am, my current "filter" inaccurately reports him as tardy for that day.

Is there some way to filter this data to first reduce it down to their earliest clock-in for the day, THEN isolate only the 8am - 9am data (if we did that, the forklift driver problem would be solved because his only time for that day would be 7:45am - his TRUE clock-in). The forklift driver is just one example. Many other employees occasionally go in/out of that door and end up clocking in multiple times, so are getting wrongly reported as tardy.

Display Employees List Whose Passport Going To Expire In Given Period
I have my Employees List in one Sheet and in another Sheet2 I want to Display those Employees Names and List whose Passport going to Expire in the dates entered in Sheet2 A1 and B2 Cell.

Report Of Employees By Date, Holidays & Sick Days

In the data tab I have my base data, which is dates across the top and names down the side. I have information in the middle such as 'H8' which means that the person was on holiday for 8 hours on that particular day, and 'S8' which means they were sick for 8 hours on that day.

I want a macro that will rearrange the information in the table and put it into the report format which is in the report sheet.

If you see the spreadsheet you will probably get a better idea of what I am trying to achieve.

where is possible to get more detailed manual - reference - for using ADO in excel? Help in Excel doesnt content much information of ADO, I have tried to find other manual, but no results.

INDEX And MATCH To Pull Back Employees Hours From A Master Sheet
I am usuing INDEX and MATCH to pull back employees hours from a master sheet, I am asking excel to Index, matiching firstly the agents name and then the day of the week (Formatted: Mon,Tue,Wed,Thurs,Fri,Sat,Sun). This works perfectly for every day of the week using the following formuls except for Sun where it returns #REF!

=(INDEX(Hours!\$B\$4:\$G\$166,MATCH(\$F\$1,Hours!\$A\$4:\$A\$166,0),MATCH(C7,Hours!\$B\$3:\$H\$3,0)))

Spell Check - VBA Vs. Manual
I have initiated a spell-check in VBA using:

Manual Calculation Warning?
Is there a way to make excel 2007 pop up a warning whenever calculation is set to manual by a macro or any other means? I have on several occasions noticed formulas not working, only to discover that calculation was set to manual without me noticing. And then I don't know how much of my work may have been afffected. This seems like a pretty vital piece of information, and I am surprised that it's not made more obvious.

Protect From Changes & Manual Input
I have a macro that transfer data from one sheet to another (I have sheets called Form and Sent). Basically, the users enters data in the Form Sheet. After they're done, the data gets transferred to the Sent Sheet. I don't want users to be able to modify the data in the Sent sheet. I just want them to see the records. Also, i want the sheet protected from having users manually inputting datas. I can't accomplish this when I protect the sheet, since it is giving me an error while running the macro to transfer data. Is there a workaround?

Manual Rank Update
I have what I'd thought would be a simple problem, but I haven't yet been able to track down an answer. I am trying to manually rank a list (column) of players' names. What I'd like to be accomplish is something to the effect of being able to enter a value for a single player, then have the cells resort themselves AND update the list.

Example:

RANK PLAYER NAME
1 Jon
2 Jim
3 Joe
4 Jack
5 Jane

I'd like to be able to manually change A5, for example, to 2 and then have the list update itself to read:

RANK PLAYER NAME
1 Jon
2 Jack
3 Jim
4 Joe
5 Jane

I've toyed with macros that took care of the sorting piece but I'm still left with duplicate numbers (ranks) that I must then manually change and/or fill down. There are over 500 entries (rows) so this can become a bit tiresome.

Open In Calculation Manual

how can i choose that excel opens every file in calculation manual?

Turn Calculation To Manual
I'm trying to turn calculation to manual, but there does not seem to be an Options button under tools on the mac I'm using. I've checked another mac and it is also missing. I'll probably end up using a pc for the calculations anyway, but I was wondering if anyone knew what was up?

Manual Delete Causing Troubles
I have an action that deletes a row, and decrements rows counter by one. But, if the user manually deletes one row, I don't get that information (decrementation). Workbook pretection is out of the option.

What are my choices?

I was thinking, is it possible to capture a delete event in general, and add some code to it? Or maybe even completely disable it?

Open Workbook With Calc As Manual
Is there any way of opening a workbook via VBA that will set the calculation to xlCalculationManual BEFORE the workbook calculates anything on opening.

The purpose: I'm opening the workbook remotely from an Access document and there are quite a few formulas in the workbook that take a few seconds to calculate. I have a modeless UserForm that displays from the Workbook_Open event which I want to get displayed before all the calculations take place so the user has something pretty to look at while he/she is waiting. But it seems that the workbook performs a calculation before running the Open event code.

Preferences Keep Defaulting To Manual Calculation
I am on a Mac running OS 10.4.11. Whenever I launch Excel 2008, I have to go to Preferences and set Calculation to automatic.

Then Excel calculates automatically until the next time I launch the program. Then I find it has defaulted back to manual.

Formulas: Calculate Without Manual Calclation

Macros Effected By Manual Calculations On Run?
I always use manual calculation with Excel, does it affect the calculation within a Macro when I run it?

Temporarily Change Calculation To Manual
I have a set of procedures that require auto recalc to be on to work correctly. I've tried application.volatile and Application.CalculateFull with no luck. I'm trying to put together code that makes sure recalc is on, but that first determines the current recalc status and then changes it back to Manual when necessary. I don't know how to determine the current status. The following code should work if the red sections are fixed.

Sub TempAuto()
Dim CurrentState As unknown
CurrentState = Application.Calculation status
Application.Calculation = xlAutomatic
If CurrentState = Manual Then
Application.Calculation = xlManual
End If
End Sub

Pivot Table Manual Manipulation
My pivot table is not auto summing each column properly, and I can't manually enter a formula to do so. I tried adjusting the settings of the rows and columns through the pivot table wizard, but no luck. Is there a way around this limitation?

Disable Manual Entry In Combobox
I would like to use a combobox and I want to force the user to selected one item from the list, and not to be able to type anything in it.

My other solution would be to use a listbox but I like the combobox design better...

I found this code in a MSDN Forum but somehow, it does not seem to work.
Maybe it is because I do not know what to do with a "public class", or my Excel 97 does not support this.
I tried pasting the "private sub" in a sheet code (where my combobox is), but it did not work.

Public Class Form1
Private Sub ComboBox1_KeyPress(ByVal sender As System.Object, _

ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) _

Handles ComboBox1.KeyPress

e.Handled = True

End Sub

Is this code actually working under excel 97 and if so, where do I have to put it?

Hyperlinks Only Work After Manual Edit
I have received from reading previous posts in this forum. Now I have a problem that I have struggled with for weeks. Ref: Excel 2000. I create (Purchase Order) Workbooks with 50 (POs) Worksheets, and 1 summary (Index) worksheet. The Index worksheet has hyperlinks to each PO (created via VBA), and works as expected.
Subsequently, each worksheet has a hyperlink back to the Index worksheet also created from VBA
