I have data in columns

Col A has program names A, B,C etc
Col B has time against each program

I want to insert col c so that

Programs between 02:00 to 05:59 is labelled late night, 06:00 to 09:59 is labelled morning, 10:00 to 13:59 is labelled Early Afternoon, 14:00 to 17:59 is labelled Afternoon, 18:00 - 21:59 is labelled Prime Time, 22:00 to 25:59 is labelled Late Prime

Can anyone give me a formula for this?
 

Excel Facts

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.
See how this does...

=IF(L2 < TIMEVALUE("05:59"),"Late Night",IF(L2 < TIMEVALUE("09:59"),"Morning",IF(L2 < TIMEVALUE("13:59"),"Early Afternoon",IF(L2 < TIMEVALUE("17:59"),"Afternoon",IF(L2 < TIMEVALUE("21:59"),"Prime Time",IF(L2 < TIMEVALUE("23:59"),"Late Prime",""))))))

This works. But I get blank for the time between 23:59 and 25:59

All the other time bands are labelled correctly

How about at the end of the formula replace the "" with what you want for that time. BTW...what is 25:59?

That's what I thought, but I would say we could not use 25:59 because in Excel it is not a time.

Try...

=IF(L2 < TIMEVALUE("05:59"),"Late Night",IF(L2 < TIMEVALUE("09:59"),"Morning",IF(L2 < TIMEVALUE("13:59"),"Early Afternoon",IF(L2 < TIMEVALUE("17:59"),"Afternoon",IF(L2 < TIMEVALUE("21:59"),"Prime Time",IF(L2 < TIMEVALUE("25:59"),"Late Prime",""))))))
