Hi,

I have a d ata dowload form an external website showing date and times personel have worked. I can download this into excel, and i want to calcualte the total hours worked each day, and then hours worked if over 6pm.

Trouble is though, when it downloads, the date and time are in one cell.

<TABLE style="WIDTH: 83pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=111><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 83pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 4059" width=111><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 18.75pt" height=25><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 83pt; HEIGHT: 18.75pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl64 height=25 width=111>20/02/2011 10:02</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

How do i break this apart? I try =left(e5,10) to et the date, and change the format odf the cell to date, but ic comes up with

<TABLE style="WIDTH: 48pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=64><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 48pt" width=64><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 18.75pt" height=25><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 48pt; HEIGHT: 18.75pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" height=25 width=64>40593.6146</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

Any ideas?

Thanks
 

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Brilliant. =INT(a1) allows me to see the date, but what about the time?

The time is:

=MOD(A1,1)

Mod for time. Cheers.

Ive tried this, and i get

<TABLE style="WIDTH: 243pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=324><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 81pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 3949" span=3 width=108><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 12.75pt" height=17><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 81pt; HEIGHT: 12.75pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl65 height=17 width=108 align=right>19/02/2011 14:45</TD><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 81pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl65 width=108 align=right>19/02/2011 00:00</TD><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 81pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl65 width=108 align=right>00/01/1900 14:45</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

I can see it is picking up the right info, but the cells are still showing date and time in the same cell.

You need to format the date cell as Date and the time cell as Time.

I always had problems with the =int and =mod functions so I've gotten used to playing chop shop like this:

=DATE(RIGHT(LEFT(E5,10),4),RIGHT(LEFT(E5,5),2),LEFT(E5,2))

As for the time:

=TIME(LEFT(RIGHT(E5,5),2),RIGHT(E5,2),)
