This simple macro will put the current time into the active cell

Sub Time_Now()
'Routine to Enter current time in active cell
'Change format as required
With ActiveCell
    .Value = Time
    .NumberFormat = "hh:mm"
End With
End Sub

Put the macro in a standard module in the Personal.xls workbook

The easiest way to use this is to put a button on a toolbar and link it to this macro. When you have selected a cell, clicking the button will put the time in the cell.

A better way is to add an insert time option to the right click cell shortcut menu, but this is a little more complicated.

Note that this macro only puts the time in the cell.

If you need date as well it can easily be modified.

The time format is 24hrs e.g., 16:10
but it can be changed in the format line in the macro.

To calculate hours, if start time is in A2 and finish time in B2
In C2 put =B2-A2

You can add the break duration
Enter it in D2 as 0:45
The formulas in C2 and E2 are also shown

	A	B	C	D	E
1	Start	Finish	Total	Break	Worked
2	8:00	17:47	9:47	0:45	9:02
			=B2-A2		=C2-D2

This calculation will not work if finish time is after midnight, but there are ways of dealing with that, if it is an issue.

Just ask.

Can I ask that you start a new thread.

It makes it easier to track topics.

Use a title that describes the issue such as Excel time calculation after midnight.

In the body of the question be as specific as you can be about what you need to do. What inputs you have and what outputs you need

In the meantime look at Response #1 in
this thread.
