0

i Start at 06/15/2017 21:30:18

what are the total Number of Day Hours & What are the total Number of Night Hours, between these two dates?

My day is between 5:00:00 & 23:00:00 & My night is between 23:00:00 & 05:00:00 Please help.

I've included a template file that should work for you.

The basic formulas are these:

Get the total hours

``=(A2-A1)*24``

Get the hours for the day of the first date:

``=MAX(0,(TIME(23,0,0)-TIME(HOUR(A1),MINUTE(A1),SECOND(A1)))*24)``

Get the hours for the day of the second date:

``=MAX(0,(TIME(HOUR(A2),MINUTE(A2),SECOND(A2))-TIME(5,0,0))*24)``

Then use those numbers to get the results that you want. In the example, I put the dates in cell A1 and A2.

Please don't re-post the same question; I deleted the other one for you; if you had simply asked how to use the above formulas for time in the same day, it would not have been removed. I will look at this now for the same-day issue.

=MAX(0,(IF(DAY(A2)=DAY(A1),TIME(17,0,0),TIME(23,0,0))-TIME(HOUR(A1),MINUTE(A1),SECOND(A1)))*24)
i am unable to know the reason for putting TIME(17,0,0) in the above when my night hours start from 23,0,0

I am not able to look at the whole worksheet right now, but did the formula work?

Glad the site could help! And sorry I wasn't able to further help on here, but that's the nature of a free forum sometimes :/
