    Hello,

    I'm creating a spreadsheet to come up with an employee schedule. I'v
    gotten the basics down. I'm able to calculate the hours worked per wee
    and per day. What I'd like to do, to really make it easier to work wit
    going forward is to be able to count the number of staff scheduled fo
    any given shift, based on start time.

    I've only got basic excel knowledge and this seems to be beyond m
    ability to figure out. I've tried searching here and other places, bu
    just can't seem to find a solution. Hopefully someone here can assis
    me.

    Are attaching excel files here frowned upon? It doesn't seem to be a
    option. I can zip it if that helps.

    Thank you!

    you can attach a zipped excel workbook

    If your times are in column B and you want to count the time 8:00 try:
    =COUNTIF(B1:B100,TIME(8,,))
    If your names are in column A and time in B you can also try for
    existing names at 8:00
    =SUMPRODUCT(--(B1:B100=TIME(8,,)),--(A1:A100<>""))

    Thanks,

    I solved it with a combination of COUNTIFs like this:

    =COUNTIF(D4:D7,">12:00")+COUNTIF(D17:D25,">12:00")-COUNTIF(D17:D25,">19:00")

    Thanks again!
