Excel Time Card Round UP


8:00 to 9:06 = 1.0 hrs

8:00 to 9:07 = 1.25 hrs

8:00 to 9:22 = 1.5 hrs

8:00 to 9:37 = 1.75 hrs

8:00 to 9:52= 2.0 hrs

I need a formula for excel that rounds to the nearest quarter after the 7th minute in each quarter. I have used  =MROUND(D4-B4-C4,"0:15")*24 but this rounds up when it hits the 8th minute of the quarter. Thank you.




The basic formula is


Here A1 holds the time to be rounded and the cell in which the formula resides is formatted as Time, as is A1.

Applied to the time you appear to want to round the formula might look like


If you wish to slant the rounding to round up after 7 minutes instead of 8, just add 1 minute to the time you are about to round. That would then look like this:-



I tried this formula and get decimals like 0.05208333333

That's because the cell isn't formatted as Time. Change the NumberFormat to see the translation of that value into an expression of time. I wrote about this in greater detail the other day. https://www.teachexcel.com/talk/2038/time-formula-to-calculate-end-time
