Dependency Formulas For Task Worksheets

Hey All

Hope you can help me. I am trying to build a worksheet that is sort of a Project Plan. Why am I not using Project - simple - not everyone in my company has Project, and exporting in Project 2007 is just nasty!

The issue can be described with a simple example:

Imagine the sheet with the following columns

Task Ref - Task Description - Dependency - Start Time - Duration - End Time

Duration is in Minutes, End time is calculated as a formula adding the Duration to the start time using the TIME function.

Dependency contains the Task Ref of the task that must complete before the task in question can start. I would like to have a formula for start time, that pulls in the value for end time of the task identified in the Task Ref column - can anyone help?

Thanks in advance!

I need a formula to calculate Turn Around Time. Find below the sample data and details for your reference.

Received Date & Time: 10/29/2010 3:27:00 PM
Completed Date & Time: 11/1/2010 3:57:32 AM
Business Hours: 08:00 AM to 05:00 PM
Non Business hours: 05:00 PM to 08:00 AM
Weekdays : Monday to Friday
Weekends: Saturday & Sunday

If I calculate TAT for this time period it should show me 1 hour 33 minutes, why because business hours are closing by 5:00 PM on 10/29 so it should not calculate duration after 5:00 PM to until 08:00 AM on next day, however 10/29 is Friday so formula should calculate the duration from 10/29 Friday 3:37 PM to 10/29 5:00 PM and again it should calculate from 8:00 AM on 11/01 Monday and formula should skip Saturday & Sunday.

In this scenario I have completed the task before 8:00 AM on 11/01 so it should show duration of 1hour 33 minutes.

Please let me know if you need any more details


In Excel I have been trying to find an easier way to calculate a time
difference where the times cross midnight. Example:

How would you formulate an equation to determine the duration of time or
differnce between the start and end time?



Hi Guys,
I need help....I am working production scheduling with Start and End time but there is a lunch time and tea time. Is there any formula to calculate Start time to End time with excluding lunch time?
Here is example :

Lunch time :12:00pm to 1:00pm.
Duration Process :6 hours.
Start Time (8:00am)
End time (5:00 pm)

I need a formula to calculate from Start Time 8:00am and what is the End Time? with 1 hour lunch time...

Thanks,

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.

I have a sheet which has the start, stop and time taken for lunch breaks.

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 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


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):
WEEK 1 Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday
5/16 5/17 5/18 5/19 5/20 5/21 5/22
TIME IN ENTER TIME, INCLUDE AM OR PM
TIME OUT

I am very new to Excel and need help creating a formula that will allow us to calculate this timesheet? I am in desperate need for help.

Thanks..


I automating a task at work that will save some time. Seems simple enough but for some reason the code I have to cause IE to wait unil ready doesnt seem to work in all cases.

Im using :

'wait until the page loads
Do While ie.Busy Or ie.readyState READYSTATE_COMPLETE
DoEvents
Loop

This doesnt seem to work well enough, since actions are occuring that should NOT occur until the browser is ready.

Any other ideas as to how to make IE wait until the page is completely ready? I wondered about possibly checking the .innerHTML to verify that a unique page element is present.


Thanks,

Scott


Okay, so I tried (for hours) to find a solution to this and have finally gotten frustrated to the point where i think asking here will be my best bet.


Basically I want to export data from excel worksheets to various places on a word document I had. I have created a word template as well as bookmarks for that template, as that seems to be the recommendation for performing such a task with excel.

My problem is ... Now what?

I basically have 1 constant worksheet that contains all my affiliates info (Name, Address etc), which i'd like to use to populate some bookmarks in my word template, and then i have another worksheet for the previous month, indicating sales etc for that affiliate. I intend on adding a new worksheet every month that i would use to create new invoices.

Furthermore, i'd really like to be able to update a new file (or perhaps a new page on the same file) for each company with the use of a button, similar to the one's you'd see in an access form.

Can anyone help? Let me know if you need me to clarify.

Thanks!

Matt


I am attempting to figure out how to change the formula to automatically subtract a 30 minute lunch if the total time for the day exceeds 6 hours worked.

B value Time of day punch in: 9:30 AM
C value =IF(D11="","","-")
D value Time of Day punch out: 6:00 PM
E value =IF(D11="","",IF(D11

Good day... I need an IF Function that will allow me to action a time in a time range:

... If the time 04:16 falls in the time range 04:00 - 04:29, than put a one (1) in the filed x...
... If the time 04:16 doesn't fall in the time range 04:00 - 04:29, than leave the x fiel empty

Any help is appreciated.


I've been poking around trying to figure this out but can't. The time of 9 hours, 15 minutes is being returned from a calculation but I want the cell to display the 9.25 hours instead. This seems like something simple on the surface, but apparently it's not. Any help would be appreciated!


Hello,

I am copying charts to display the same information for different regions. When I work on the copied region, I find it a cumbersome task to go through each charts source data and change the cell references to the different region. Essentially I am doing a trending analysis for each region, with a region having its own sheet with 5 charts per sheet. What I have done is copy the original sheet and am updating the sheet for another regions source data by going to the source data. The source data is all in the same row/column format, but each regions source data has its own sheet. Is there a more automatic way to do this? Perhaps a way to update all 5 charts references at the same time.


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.


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


Hi,
I made a simple worksheet that we have been manually entering the time for employees, but there are too many errors (even with simple math). Can someone help me convert the time of ex: written 8-4:30 or 10-3 (meaning 8:00am to 4:30pm) where you have the total weekly hours? Right now I have a column for overtime. Is there a way to automatically calculate the over time also? The work day is 8-4:30 with a half hour lunch (lunch is not calculated into the hours, so you minus a half hour). 8-4:30 equals 8 hours. So, if a person works 8am to 6:30pm, how can I set it up where in the first row of time, I will type in 8-6:30pm. In the totals column to the far right, it will display 8 hours. In the (O.T.) column, it will display 2 hours.

This way, when I call in my payroll, I will have the total "regular" hours in one row and underneath, I will have the total overtime hours.

Or... does anyone have a better solution to keeping track of their hours?

Thanks!
Marty


I am trying to calculate the average Talk Time into Minutes and Seconds. Every time I have tried, I get the wrong average.

For example, if I have a total of 53 calls and the total talk time is 4:19:05, what would the average talk per call be? I tried doing everything in seconds (this would give me a total of 15545 seconds) but the total I was getting is 4:89.

What would the formula be to get the correct average time?


Is there a way to force Excel to stop calculating a formula?
Excel showing "Not Responding" and is grayed out. I've tried to use Task Manager to stop the application, but as soon as open up Excel it goes right back to opening the spreadsheets and starts calculating again. I have spreadsheets saved, so don't have to recover.
thanks...Dean


I am trying to calculate time based off a non-conventional quarter hour time system

example;
8:00 to 8:07 = 8.0 hrs
8:08 to 8:23 = 8.25 hrs
8:24 to 8:38 = 8.5 hrs
8:39 to 8:53 = 8.75 hrs
8:53 to 8:59 = 9.0 hrs

I am having trouble writing an equation that would sum the clock-in and clock-out times (2 per day) and display the total time in these quarter hours and adding an additional hour if it is >= to *:53. Any help would be great.


Sorry for the question. Normally I find answers to my excel questions by going through the help tab or by searching on Google. However, I don't even know what question to ask on this one!?!

Basically I have created a spreadsheet with several columns, but I have one column that lists the shirt size (YS, YM, YL, AS, AM, AL, XL, 2X, 3X) of each person. Is there a formula that I can create that will tabulate the number of sizes (i.e. AS=2, AM=7, etc.)?

In previous years I made a column for each size, and simply placed a "1" in the correct column, and had excel just add the 1's from each column. However, that takes more time and space. I was hoping to streamline it this time around.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, doug


i have a worksheet with formulas in 15,000 cells; i have set the calculation to maunal so that you have to press F9 to calculate the sheet. \

sometimes, it takes 45 seconds to calc the whole sheet, other times, it takes 5 minutes. how do i clear the cache, or what do i have to do so that it calcs 45 seconds each time.

i don't want the application to think, it would be better if those 15,000 cells can be returned in a fraction-of-a-second. any ideas/tips? thanks.


is it possible to put two formulasinto one cell?

On the attached timesheet there are columns IN, OUT, IN,OUT
The lunch time is worked out by deducting 'C8 from C9' and this works fine when all 'IN, OUT' cells are filled in but for some reason when just the first two cells are filled in it gives a -12 hour answer.

looking at cell 'C11 ' in the attached worksheet, I currently have the formula
=IF(C13=0,","SUM(C9-C8)) The reason for this is to make it look tidy by having blank cells until a calculation is needed,, My problem is, If someone just comes in for the morning one day for instance 8am to 12 noon then they won't have lunch, but C11 will show -12:00
Can I put another formula into C11 to tell it not to deduct C8 from C9 until a time is put into C9.
The following is the sort of thing (many variations) I have been trying but because I'm hopeless at formulas I'm not having any success
Thanks

=IF(C13=0,","SUM(C9-C8))OR,IF(C9,ISBLANK,"",SUM(C9-C8)


Good afternoon,

Is there a way to enter a colon into a standard number to create a value that can be formatted into a 24 hour time value ?

eg a time is listed as 1345 with a general number format, and I want it returned as 13:45 witha custom format of hh:mm.

Other than creating a table and using a vlookup function, I am hoping there is a better way?

Darren


Let's say, if two fields in one column has been filled with numerical
increament, i.e. A1 is 2 and A2 is 4. Now I want to fill the whole column
with this increament pattern till row A20. One thing we will all do is to
left click on the fill handle and drag it down to row A20. But if the task is
to fill to row 500, the mouse draging sometime won't be easy to locate the
row. I am wondering anyone can help me to find the keyboard shortcut
equivalent to that drag fill handle action.

Thanks
