Or, have I totally misunderstood your question

Hi This post entrigues me so I've had a look in Excel Help and it came up with "Calculate the difference between two times". I'm using only version 2003, but this might start you on the tract.

Also, I tried Google'ing "Excel calculate the difference between two times" and, as well as the Help instructions, I wondered if this web page might help, although for version 2003. I don't know what version you are using.


I would be interested to hear how you managed. I have to admit to not managing to get the suggested formulae to work for me! Maybe I'm typing something in wrongly!

Hope this helps Cheers

You need to enter times like 10:00:00 otherwise Excel will not recognise them as times.

Thanks, VoG I've now worked it out, thanks to you. Hope David has got the solution to his problem, too! Cheers

Thanks all for your replies, I have worked out what to do and it works in Excel 2000, the version I have. All the best to you David
