Hi

I see weeknum() can return a week number given a date.

However I need to reverse this procedure and calculate the START and END

dates for a week given just the weeknumber [weeknum() ] for the week

concerned

for example, given

week number 50 I need to return Dec 5 (start) and Dec 11 (end)

week number 51 I need to return Dec 12 (start) and Dec 18 (end)

thanks , David

So I'm so hopeful

I'm concerned with making a timetable for my school which we used to do it manually

I need a code to distribute each teacher timetable with the following basis:

the number of classes_ the teacher is assinged to work with_multiplied by the number of periods ( which is changeable ).

e.g ; Teacher 1 has 2 classes (1-1 &1-2). Each class should be visited 9 timea a week.

So Teacher 1 should work 18 periods a week

the distribution I need 'd look like the example in Sheet("timetable")

I'm trying to come up with a solution to calculate the man hours and days worked over multiple sheets.

I have a file that has 8 sheets. the first seven sheets are the days of the week and the 8th sheet is where I want to calculate the hours.

The days of the week consists of "Name" "Date" Hours"

The 8th sheet consists of "Name", "Days of the week in their own column (7 columns in total)", "Total Hours" and "Total Days Worked"

Now... each day is always a different group and what I'm hoping for is to create a formula that can grab each name with their hours and throw them into the 8th sheet. So when the end of the week is done I have all the Employees weekly hours and days worked all finished.

I hope this makes sense. This file is to track about 100 employees that are on a rotational work schedule.

I have attached a sample file.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I am trying to correct a formula for a productivity worksheet in excel. The idea is that we would have the ability to input the number of hours worked each day and the number of direct hours (working with clients) per day. Then take the daily percentages and add them then devide them to determine the final productivity percentage for the week. Additionally not everyone works a full week so I would need it to only divide the percentages of the days that were completed. Any suggestions? or does anybody know a formula that would accomplish this already? I am good with basic excel and was able to identify a flaw in the current productivity sheet.

I need a formula to calculate overtime, after a work week of 40 hours.

for example: if an employee works 10 hours a day we would not count towards overtime until the employee completes a 40 hour work week.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Hey everyone,

I need to plot percentages over time in a line graph in excel. I don't want to have to do a percentage equation in the spreadsheet, I just want excel to take two sets of values and display the percentage in the chart. For example, I need B1 as a percentage of B2 for week 1, C1 as a percentage of C2 for week 2, etc....

Can someone please offer a suggestion for how to do this? I would really appreciate it.

Also, would it be possible to link data from other sheets in the workbook into one single chart?

Hello,

Please help!!!

We have a client who will pay using the 1/4, 1/2/ and 3/4 of an hour increments as follows:

From the hour mark to 6 minutes = 0 time paid

Over 7 minutes to 15 minutes = 1/4 hour 15

16 minutes to 30 minutes = 1/2 hour 30

30 minutes to 45 minutes = 3/4 hour 45

46 minutes to 60 minutes = one hour.

They work on shifts and the operation is 24 hours. Each gets 30 minutes for breaks which is not paid. Pay is biweekly and overtime is anything over 40 hours. Currently, the template we are using looks like this (sorry, I could not figure out how to paste it so you can see it in Excel layout):

Ok, I'm going to try and explain this. I am going to have 5 data points in cells such as A2:A6

All I need is to know if there is an upward trend or downward trend of the numbers.... I can't have something that simply takes the first and last number and checks if it's higher or lower. I need to actually see if they are trending upwards. Also how would i go about making it so that if they are trending upwards it shows an up arrow, and down arrow for downwards...

And finally, if the trend continues at the same rate, how long it will take the number to reach a goal. Each data point will be 1 week apart, with an ultimate goal needed to be achieved at the end.

This will be a completely separate formula on the sheet....

Any help?

I want to calculate the total time worked such that i have the hours worked. So if i worked 7 hours and 30min then the total time would be 7.5hrs. But i am not sure how to take into account the lunch break time (see enclosed sheet).

anyone have any ideas?

I have a spreadsheet set up with an employees information, including the start date. After each year that the employee is working, he gets bumped up on the pay scale. For this reason, I only need to know how many years the employee has been working, rounded down to the nearest year.

This is what I have so far (hire date is in column B):

=((TODAY()-B4)/365)&" YEARS"

This function gives me a number with many decimal places.

I tried:

=ROUNDDOWN((TODAY()-B4)/365),0)&" YEARS"

It tells me I have too few arguments. Please help!

I am using the following formula to calculate the number of days between a date and the current date: =DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"d") What do I add to the formula to leave cell blank if no date is entered in the cell for calculation.

How do I calculate the number of batches per hour? Here's what I have so far:

Cell B5: start time: 4:15 formatted as 4:15:00 am

Cell B6: finish time: 6:15 formatted as 6:15:00 am

Cell B7: total time: 2:00 formula in cell: =TEXT(B6-B5,"h:mm")

Cell B8: total batches processed: 22 (this is entered manually)

Cell B9: batches per hour: formula in cell: =B8/TEXT(B7,"h")

as long as I have this formula in cell B9 the answer comes out correct which should be 11 per hour.

If the formula in B9 is B8/B7, the answer is 264.0, Is this because of the way excel is reading the total time or the total time is formatted as a time, not an actual number? Is this the correct way to solve the problem?

answer should be 11 per hour.

I am looking for assistance in having one cell in a text format equals another cell that contains a time value in hh:mm format.

For example: Cell A1 has a time format (hh:mm) value of 04:00; which is the Start Time. I would like cell D1 to have a text format value of "04:00" (result is dependant upon what is entered in A1). I would duplicate the same formulas to reflect Stop Times in other cells.

My final result is to have another cell (F1) use the Concatenate formula to have the Start and Stop time shown in one cell as "04:00 - 12:30". The times would change based on the Time formated values entered into the Start and Stop time cells.

I have researched this in the board and found many excellent ways to do the opposite, but not convert Time format to Text format. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

I hope you can help me with what I would like to do. I've searched and searched and not come up with anything yet!!

I have one sheet which is my 'data' sheet with a number of columns, one of which is a date which may be repeated.

I then want to use another sheet with two cells where two dates can be entered and a button which allows you to copy the rows of data from the data sheet which have dates between the two specified originally. The list in the data sheet may not be in date order although I could update a macro to do this for me if needed. I would also like to do it so that if "ALL" is typed in the date fields, it pulls over ALL the data. (Or something similar)

Any help you can give would be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Kevin

I am trying to figure out how to write a formula to figure out production cycle time.

We will be building 8 "widgets" a day.

We will work 10 hours a day.

There is a 20 minute break at 9:20 am.

Production shuts down for lunch 30 minutes for lunch at 12:30.

Production starts at 6:00 am.

Here is what I can do.

Production cycle time = (10*60)-30/8 or 71.25 minutes

If we start at 6:00 am, the first scheduled cycle completion time = TIME(6,0,0+71.25/1440)

My problem is when I am trying to use a logical "IF' statement to account for the 20 minute break or lunch and still calculate the end of each cycle time through the day I receive a number of error messages.

This is the formula I am trying to make work. I have the cell the formula is in, formatted with a "mm,ss" format.

=(IF(D4+G1/1440>9:20,(D4+G1)/24,(D4+G1+15)/1440))

I have included an attachment to help (a picture is worth a thousand words).

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have bought a number of books in an attempt to figure this out, and I am still stumped

Hi there

I am trying to calculate our On Time Delivery. I want this as a simple percentage of jobs. I have got this running in the following way:

Column M - Estimated Delivery dates

Column N - Actual Delivery dates

Column O - =IF(SUM(M2-N2)>0,1,0)

Then I have calculated On Time Delivery as: =SUM((SUM(O2:O252))/(COUNTA(N2:N252)))

This seems to work fine. My problem is, if we enter a date in Estimated without a corresponding Actual date, the formula for Column O fills out anyway and improves our On Time Delivery Percentage. How can I set this up so that the formula doesn't calculate if there is no data in Column N?

Any help much appreciated

Thanks,

James

I need a formula to automatically calculate if the Job was completed in the

date range that was provided, and to return Early, Late or Ok accordingly.

date range that was provided, and to return Early, Late or Ok accordingly.

I often use if statements to return empty cells, for example:

=IF(a1=0,"ERROR","")

The trailing "" returns an empty cell. The problem is, it is not TRULY empty. If I fill that formula down, I cannot, for example, jump from one "ERROR" cell to the next by hitting Ctrl arrow-down because it seems to think that these empty cells have contents.

Is there a way to designate, in such a formula as above, to return a TRULY empty cell?

Thanks

Is there a way to designate, in such a formula as above, to return a TRULY empty cell?

Thanks

I'm trying to format a worksheet to show how many days overdue certain tasks are, and running into a couple of issues. The sheet is set up with Due Dates in Column A, Days Overdue in Column B, and Date Completed in Column C. My first thought was just to use as simple a formula as possible in Column B =Today()-A2. This worked alright for tasks that already had Due Dates assigned, but if Column A was blank I'd get a high number in Column B. I also realized that tasks will continue to show as overdue even after I enter the completed-on date in Column C. Is there a relatively simple way to tackle this formula? Thanks in advance for suggestions. (I've attached an example with the column headings I want to use.)
