# Calculate Elapsed time: difference between 2 Date/Timestamp perio

B

I need to calculate the elapsed time between 2 dates/timestamps. For ex., I
need to get the elapsed time in hh:mm between:
8/20/2006 08:00:00 (hh:mm:ss) AND 8/21/2006 09:00:00. The answer would be
25 hours in this case. How do I do this in Excel 2000??

=B1-A1

format cell as Custom==>[h]:mm

B1 = End date, A1 = Start Date

#### Bob Phillips

Subtract the earlier from the later, and format as [h]:mm
