Excel Timesheet

by B_R0B3RTS0N / April 10, 2016 9:31 AM PDT

I am trying to create a time sheet where there is a start time, start lunch, end lunch and then out for the day. I need it to round the start time and out for the day by 7 minutes.
Ex. 7:53 am to 8:07 am = 8:00am
8:08 am to 8:22 am = 8:15
8:23 am to 8:37 am = 8:30
8:38 am to 8:52 am = 8:45
For the lunch break i need to have 30 minutes deducted if the break is 20 minutes or more and if the break is less than 20 minutes no time deducted. Lunch break in and out times are not rounded.

I have tried a few different things and none of them are coming out right

Then you didn't try the right thing.

A time is just a number between 0 (0:00) and 1 (24:00). If you multiply by 96 (=24*4), round to the nearest integer and divide by 96 again, you get the rounded time. That just 1 formula.
Or use hour and minutes functions to get simple integers if you hate floating point calculations.

To summarize: learn Excel.
