# Excel Time Calculations

## Excel Time Calculations

(OP)
I would like to do a time calculation in Excel. I would like to enter a start time, and end time and have the formula calculate the difference returning a numeric decimal value. For example, I would enter a start time of 12:00 PM and an ending time of 1:30 PM and I want the return value to be 1.5.

    A         B         C
12:00 PM   1:30 PM   =(B1-A1) * 24

Assuming columns A and B are set as TIME (not text)

There is a great need for a sarcasm font.

DianeSp,
Welcome to Tek-Tips . I hope you find this site valuable.

You should click the *Great Post! link in Andy's answer. It was quick, accurate, and even included TGML formatting for readability.

FYI, all date and time values are stated in units of days.
