Default Calculate the amount of time over a permitted amount (12 hours)

Hi
I would like to calcualte the time over a permitted amount and display it in
a cell.

Column C is the start time dd/mm/yy hh:mm and Column L is the finish time
dd/mm/yy hh:mm. The alloted time is 12 hours for the job and and need column
M to show the amount of time used over the 12 hours.

Many Thanks.

=MAX(L2-C2-"12:00",0)

and format as time,[h]:mm

I assume that your data has headers, so the data should start from 2nd Row.

Copy and paste the below formula in M2 cell.
=IF($L2-$C2=TIME(12,0,0),"",($L2-$C2)-TIME(12,0,0))

Select the M Column and Do Right ClickFormat
CellsNumberCategoryCustomType copy and paste the below format or
type it.

[h]:mm:ss

And give Ok…

Remember to Click Yes, if this post helps!

Hi,

What do you want to see if it takes less than or equal to 12 hours? This
displays the text "In Time"

=IF((L1-C1)*24=12,"In Time",(L1-C1)-TIME(12,0,0))

format this cell with
[h]:mm

When competing hypotheses are otherwise equal, adopt the hypothesis that
introduces the fewest assumptions while still sufficiently answering the
question.

Hi
Both of the solutions above work within a 24 hour period, but some jobs can
go over by a few days so I need it to show this in either hours or days and
hours.
many thanks do far

Hi,

If the formula don't work for hours in excess of 24 then you havent
formatted the cells as shown. Format as

[h]:mm

The square barckets stop rollover after 24 hours. If you want days then
format as

d:h:mm

You will need to enter start and end times including the dates.
Then format the result as [h]:mm to allow to show hours more than 24.

But d:h:mm will have problems when you go beyond 31 days.
