# How can I calculate elapsed time *excluding* hours beyond wo

#### megnin

I have a start time inserted into column A and an ending time inserted in column J using this:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
If Target.Column = 3 Then
Target.Offset(0, -2).Value = Now()
End If

If Target.Column = 6 Then
Target.Offset(0, 4).Value = Now()
End If

End Sub

Then in column k I have J2-A2 to calculate the elapsed time.

I need the elapsed time to not count hours after "working hours". So for instance start time is 10/24 at 4:00pm and end time is 10/25 at 9:00am elapsed time should be 2 hours assuming an 8-5 workday.

Is this possible?

Test for Multiple Conditions in IF?
Use AND(test, test, test, test) or OR(test, test, test, ...) as the logical_test argument of IF.
