But here is what i am talking about:

We are calculating a cost per unit during repair.

In column "G" is "START TIME"

In column "H" is "STOP TIME"

Column "I" is used for "TOTAL TIME"

Column "J" is where I want the labor cost of fixing any specific unit.

We are using the "labor cost" as a figure of $16/hr which comes out to $.27

per minute.

Our techs aren't the brightest people in the world so I have the start and

stop time set up like 14:40 then ending at 15:10 - in the "total time" column

it comes out as 0:30 which then I have the equation =(I1*.27) for some reason

it won't convert :30 to just 30 minutes.

Sorry if I am confusing anyone...

I need to convert the times into minutes.

My total time formula is

H1-G1 and it gives me 0:30 which I then need converted to minutes to

multiply by .27

STOP TIME - START TIME = TOTAL TIME TAKEN *.27
