Calculating overtime and double time

Occasional Contributor

Good day. I am struggling with a part of my personal time sheet, and hope that some one can help me out with it.

I am using the office suite that is accessible to me on my hotmail account.

Time inTime outhours workedregularO.T.Double Time standardo.t.

A2 and B2 are simple time in and time out.

C2 is total hours worked and D2 is regular hours worked. I have this part figured out. My problems arrive when I get to E2, where I kind of have it, but, the total in E2 should not be more than 3 hours, and, anything over that 3 hours should go into F2.

C2 and C3 formulas {=IF(B55<A55,B55+1,B55)-A55}

D2 and D3 formulas {=IF(C55>$K$55,$K$55,C55)} where K55 = 8:00

E2 and E3 formulas {=MAX(L55,IF(C55>D55,(C55-D55)))} where L55 = 3:00

F2 and F3 formulas {=IF(C55>$M$55,C55-$M$55)} where M55 = 11:00

*The {curly brackets} are not in the actual formulas.


Thank you for any help.

It could be


=IF(C2 > D2, MIN( C2 - D2, 3/24), 0 )

=IF( C2 > (D2 + 3/24), C2 - D2 - 3/24, 0 )

Edited: I think I have it. I just put 8/24 in place of the $K$55.


Works like a charm. Thank you for your time on this.
If I could though, ask one more question on this.
Is there a way on cell D2 to have it max at 8 hrs without having to refer to cell K55?


You are welcome.

I'm not sure what do you have in C55, L55, etc. As for D2, max of 8 and what ? Perhaps you may give bit more details.

@Sergei Baklan.
Sorry for the confusion on that. I thought that I changed it all to row 2.
The B55, C55 etc is where I had these cells in my spreadsheet.
For D2, that would be my straight time. To show 8 hours, the next 3 hours go to E2, then, anything over 11 hours goes to double time.
But, with your help, I have it working now.
Thank you.

@BrianN68 , you are welcome.


So, it works now and there are no open questions?

@Sergei Baklan
Yes, it is working good now.
Thank you for your time.

I have a question....
I already have a sheet with different fields and my OT column is working, but I need a formula for DT.
Anything over 4 hrs in the G column (OT) needs to go to H column (DT), but G column needs to stay at 4

Start Finish Total Job Description Reg OT DT
8:00 AM 9:45 PM 13.75 At office. 8 4 1.75

C: =(MOD(C12-B12,1)*24)
E: =(D12)-G12
F: =IF((MOD(C12-B12,1)*24)>8,(MOD(C12-B12,1)*24)-8,0)
G: what should this be...?

Or what should I change all my formulas to?
