# Calculating exact shift times and rates per shift.

#### MECH427

Hello,
I am trying to find a couple formulas to extract the amount of hours worked on each shift. Time is entered beginning and end of a shift and may include a portion of all 3 shifts. 1st shift is 6am - 2pm, 2nd shift is 2pm - 10pm, 3rd shift is 10pm - 6am. Example if I punch in at 5:45pm and punch out at 6:30 am my time should show .5 hour on 1st, 4.25 hours on 2nd, and 8 hours on 3rd.
I was able to get 3rd shift, but 1st and second shift is killing me.

Start time (A5) / End Time (B5) / First shift hours (C5) / Second shift hours (D5) / Third shift hours (E5)

Any help for cells C5 and D5 would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you
Cal

Formula in D6 copied across and down
=MAX(0,MIN(\$B6+(\$A6>\$B6),D\$3+(\$A6>=D\$3))-MAX(\$A6,D\$2-(D\$2>D\$3)+(\$A6>=D\$3)))*24

Format D6:F10 as Number with two decimal places

Hope this helps
