# When do I need to clock out?

Hello all!

I am tracking Clock-In's & Clock-Outs for some employees, and am responsible to be sure they are not accruing too much overtime. The Time column is an export from our internal HR system and the values come out as Time (7:32:00 AM, 1:00:00 PM, etc.). To keep that data whole, what I'm wanting to due is key an integer (not a time) into a cell to calculate how many more hours that an employee can work based on how many hours they've worked so far.

For example, I would key in '8' into a cell to denote that is the total # of hours the employee can work that day, and in the empty 'Out' cell under Time (see below), it would tell me when time that employee would need to clock out to hit that 8 hours. Thus, the answer in the empty 'Out' cell would be 16:32... I can make all this work if I type 8:00 into a cell. However, I want to be lazy and just type in an integer and have the formulas do the work; I just haven't been able to find the correct formulaic conversion to do what I'm looking for. Not sure if I need a helper cell to do the trick or...? I'm sure it's a fairly easy solution but I'm not seeing it.

Any help?

### Excel Facts

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

I should've noted that I will also need that integer cell to be able to handle non full hours, as well; i.e., 8.5, 7.5, 7.25, etc...

Thank you jtakw! That worked perfectly! I knew there had to be a pretty easy answer; I think I was just way overcomplicating the formula I needed...
