# Breaking Up A Range Of Time

I am struggling to find an efficient means of taking an employee's shift and breaking it down into different time components.

Consider this shift: 2:00PM Saturday - 2:00AM Sunday.
The rules for overtime are:
Hours between 7:00AM and 3:00PM Saturdays are at time an one half (x1.5).
Hours between 3:00PM Saturday and 0:00AM Monday are at double time (x2)

I am trying to work out code that will helf me find the appropriate values for x1.5 (OT1) and x2 (OT2) allocations respectively. I run into all kinds of crazy results when I work with time especially when it comes with crossing into the next dat

VBA Code:
``````'so far .....
sostm = .cells(tgt_r,9) 'start of shift time
eostm = .Cells(tgt_r, 10) 'end of shift time
sosdt = DateValue(.Cells(2, 5) & " " & .Cells(2, 6) & ", " & .Cells(2, 4)) 'start of shift date
sos = sosdt + sostm 'start date-time
eos = '?????????? 'end date-time
elghrs = .Cells(tgt_r, 11) 'hours of shift
othrs = elghrs
ot1 = '??????? 'hours between 7am and 3pm Saturday
ot2 = '??????? 'hours between 3pm Saturday and 0:00A Monday (all day Sunday)
MsgBox "Start of Shift: " & Format(sos, "ddd dd-mm hh:mm A/P" & Chr(13) & _
"End of Shift: " & Format(eos, "ddd dd-mm hh:mm A/P" & Chr(13) & _
"Eligible for: " & othrs & " hrs. overtime.")``````

Example:
sostm = 2:00:00 PM
eostm = 2:00:00 AM
sosdt = 43974
sos = 43974.583333
eos = ?
elghrs = 12
othrs = 12

The expected results:
ot1 = 1 (2:00P - 3:00P Saturday)
ot2 = 11 (3:00P Sat - 2:00A Sunday)

Thank you.

Hi sbTimeDiff. Thank you for sharing that! Again, a very thorough solution, but perhaps a bit too complicated for me to deal with. Despite that though, it has provied some additional education I didn't have 30 minutes ago, so it's appreciated.

Looking for possibles solutions to my issues encountered in post #4, I've raised that unique problem with a cross posted question here.

Kirk's sample calculation is totally ok, I think.
In my humble opinion the UDF sbTimeDiff is simplifying things by encapsulating the desired functionality:
