Excel 2010-Working with Dates & Times

About the Class:

This workshop lasts 90 minutes.

In this workshop, participants will encounter several situations that require calculations of elapsed time, whether it is in minutes, hours, days, or years. We will see how an employer might use Excel to: calculate hours worked by an employee in a given week; determine a date in the future, given a time frame in either work days or total days; determine the day of the week for a given date and highlight those that are weekends; and calculate the number of actual work days that are available between a certain date and a project’s deadline.
