Hello, Rick,
Sorry, I can't get your point, why there are negative times in your worksheet, could you give your problem more detailed? Or you can insert the attachment or screenshot here.
If you want to show the negatice times in Excel, you can view this article: How To Display / Show Negative Time Properly In Excel?

Thank you!

Hi, I am looking forward for a formula that from the data below will count for me the sum of values as in the example below

A1. . . . . . . . B1. . . . . . c1. . . . . . D1. . . . . . E1. . . . F1
08:05:34. . . 08:00. . . 09:00. . . pl. 5 1024

So action d1 happens at a time in A1 with a value in e1 by user f1

I would like to calculate all that is happened between b1 and c1 and if it is in range and the action name is pl and the user number is 1024 count sum of e1.

Another way if user 1024 and action done pl count how sum of e1 between range of time

Certainly, I will use the same formula for each hour

Would appreciate any help
