Hey Guys,

I have a centrally located excel document. it is updated by my team mates frequently during week's time. I need to compare last week's and current sheet to find out updates during the week's time.

I want to compare the two excel sheets and generate a report in to third one.

The document contains

1. 5 lines of header ( common in both sheets)

2. 2 columns (non editable and common to both the sheets)

3. Values in cells starting from (6,C) can be changed.

I want to generate a report with 1,2 in above list as they are and specific cells (3 in above list) highlighted only if different.

I wrote a function to do this. it worked but, I could not map it with userform.

My userform accepts paths, names and sheets of 2 worksheets.

Please help.

Thnx a lot.

Often an Excel spreadsheet gets modified over time and you want to find

out what has changed.

Or you may import data into Excel worksheets and want to see how the

imported data has changed as well.

There is a neat little utility called DiffEngineX which produces

difference reports when run on two different Excel workbooks. It also

automatically copies the workbooks being compared and highlights the

different cells.

It has advanced options such as grouping equivalent changes together

such that one change to a range of cells is reported instead of tens of

separate changes.

I'm trying to calculate the difference between two dates and times and returns the answer in days hours mins for workdays only. I've seen similar threads but nothing seems to be quite right or I can't get to work

E2 contains date/time call raised in custom format dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm

M2 contains date/time action taken in custom format dd/mm/yyy hh:mm

on another worksheet I have a list called "holidays" that will have all the public holidays

I basically want AA2 to show M2-E2 in days & hh:mm only or even just hh:mm for working days only assuming a standard 5 day week with standard working hours (I have not specified working days or working hours anywhere). Also what format should cell AA2 be set up as?

Oh and if M2 isn't filled in yet I need the cell AA2 to remain blank.

Help would be gratefully appreciated

I have used the macro below to great effect to find the differences between two worksheets. However the results are output into a new spreadsheet. I was wondering whether this could be tweaked to overwrite the results onto worksheet 1 instead?

N.B. This code is was beyond my VBA capabilities so take it easy on me!

I have an excel worksheet that has two date columns.

I want to calculte the difference between two dates and express this in Years and Months (without days shown).

I can already calculate the total of days between the two dates but thats no good for me.

So, 31 March 2007 minus 31 January 2006 would need to equal "1 year 2 months".

Look forward to hearing from you.

calculate the difference between two times formatted as follows.

6/12/2006 8:03:14 PM 6/12/2006 8:08:55 PM #VALUE!

B8 C8

the formula I used is =C8-B8 and I continue to get #VALUE!!!!!!!!!

I have read the Excel help and it did not help.

microsoft excel worksheet.

be in different row, how can I make sure they are in same row between two

worksheet, also when I add new customer's name by inserting row in worksheet

one, how can it be added to worksheet two in the same row so that they are

always consistent?

Thanks a great!!

Hank

I've attached a simple example, which I made by doing a line chart and drawing the areas between them using the free form shapes tool. This is not too time consuming, but would have to be redone every time the data changes. I'm hoping somebody knows a better approach.

Thanks

Was wondering if someone was able to help me with a little problem that i'm having. I am trying to find the difference between two dates and times but i need to minus the weekends.

My Spreadsheet currently looks like like this:

B3 has 15/11/2010 8:56:00 AM

C3 has 22/11/2010 11:34:00 AM

D3 has =(INT(C3)-INT(B3))+MAX(MOD(C3,1)-MAX(MOD(B3,1))) Which = 7.109722

E3 has =INT(TEXT(D3,"[h]")/24)&" days"&TEXT(MOD(D3,1),""" and"" h ""hours and ""mm"" minutes""") Which = 7 Days and 2 Hours and 38 Minutes

What i'm looking to do is have a list of all the weekends for the month in my spreadsheet and if the dates go through the weekend they will be subtracted from the total days. So my example for the example should be: 5 Days and 2 Hours and 38 Minutes.

Any help would be great

Thanks in Advanced

Thanks, Mike

What I have at the moment:

I have a cell called CURRENT and one called TARGET.

Current has todays date and target has 29/07/05.

I have a cell called TO GO which has the formula = Target - Current

The cell is formated in the following: yy mm dd hh:mm:ss

There is VBA which updates NOW so that I have a countdown.

(Dim SchedRecalc As Date

VB:All this works fine.SetTime() SchedRecalc = Now + TimeValue("00:00:01") Application.OnTime SchedRecalc, "Recalc" End Sub Sub Recalc() Range("Current").Value = Now Call SetTime End Sub Sub Disable() On Error Resume Next Application.OnTime EarliestTime:=SchedRecalc, Procedure:="Recalc", Schedule:=False End Sub)If you like these VB formatting tags please consider sponsoring the author in support of injured Royal Marines

The Problem:

The result in the cell TO GO is not accurate. It does not show the exact number of days to go. For example if Current = 29/07/04 and Target = 29/07/05 I want to see TO GO showing that there are 12 Months and 0 days to go.

Any ideas why the DAY part is not giving the answer I am expecting?

MZP

Example 1

2:00 AM - 5:00 AM = 3.0

Example 2

2:30 AM - 3:00 = 0.50

Eample 3

2:15 AM - 3:00 AM = 0.75

I need it to show a period style answer and the range from 0.0 to 24.0 depending on the times of course any help would be great.

Calculating the difference between two times is easy to do in Excel when only two columns are involved such as:

Column A Column B

StartTime EndTime

---------- -----------

1/3/11 4:00 PM 1/6/11 2:00 PM

A formula like: (B1-A1) calculates the difference.

However, how does the formula look like when instead of two columns you have four columns? My START time has two columns. One for the Start DATE (i.e. 1/3/11) and a second for the Start TIME (i.e. 4:00 PM). Then I also have two columns for the end time. One column for the END date and a second column for the END time. I would appreciate it a lot if some one can help me develop a formula that will calculate the difference between two times when four columns of time related data are at play. Thanks in advance.

While using the datedif function to find the difference between two dates in months and days i am getting error value comparing to the manual calculation login. Is there any other function to find out the result as per the desired requirement. Pls find the example below.

Manual Calculation Using Datedif Formula

Start Date End Date Month Days Month Days Difference

3/12/2007 8/1/2008 16 21 16 20 -1

1/10/2006 8/1/2008 30 23 30 22 -1

6/2/2006 8/1/2008 25 29 25 30 1

4/2/2006 8/1/2008 27 29 27 30 1

2/3/2005 8/1/2008 41 26 41 29 3

2/2/2007 8/1/2008 17 27 17 30 3

11/1/2007 8/1/2008 9 0 9 0 Correct Value

10/25/2003 8/1/2008 57 7 57 7 Correct Value

formula used DATEDIF(A3,B3,"M")

DATEDIF(A3,B3,"MD")

Hope some one can solve this.

I would like to know which function is to be used for finding out the difference between two days in months and balance days.

For example

18/1/2004 to 01/08/2008 - 54 months & 14 days

Thanks

I want to calculate the difference between two times (these will always be in the same day, and will not span midnight). For example:

Start time (Cell B2): 08:30:00

End time (Cell C2): 18:00:00

Duration (Cell D2): 08:30:00

I now want to subtract 30 minutes lunch period from this calculation.

Many thanks,

Doug.

show the overage in red....Help!

How can I calculate with a formula the time difference between two times

when the second time is on the next day ( the cells are formatted as time ).

i.e. the difference between 17:00 today to 01:30 next day.

Thank you

GL

I am trying to get a difference between two months, I looked every

where in excel date functions and on excel groups to no avail.

I came across the datedif function but for some reason this function

works very strange. lets say I have a date in cell A1 as 12/31/2005 and

the date in cell B1 is 2/1/2006. now the difference in months should be

2 and not 1 as this function indicates. when I use 12/1/2005 as my

start date then I get 2 as an answer, not sure why the inconsistency.

this is the current formula --> DATEDIF(A1,B1,"m")

I realize that 12/31 is the end of the month for december and therfore

it is caluclating the month difference between 12/31 and 2/1 as one

month. but I want the difference in months, so if I have 12/1 or 12/31

as my starting date and my ending date is 2/1 or 2/28, I still want the

difference to show as 2.

I would appreciate any feedback/input for this problem..

thanks a lot...
