How to check if time is between two times in Excel?
In Excel, how could you check if a specific time is between two given times? To check them one by one will waste lots of time, here, I will introduce some simple formulas to solve this job.
For example, I have two columns of times which are start time and end time in column A and column B separately, now I want to check if the time in column C is between the time range in column A and column B as below screenshot shown:
The following formulas may help you to identify if the specific time is between two times, please do as this:
Enter any one of the following formulas into a blank cell beside your data where you want to output the result:
And then drag the fill handle down to the cells which you want to apply this formula, and the time if between the given two times has been identified, if it is between two times, a Yes will be displayed, if is not between the two times, a No will be displayed, see screenshot:
Note: In the above formulas, C2 is the specific time you want to check, and A2 and B2 are the cells contain the two times that you want to check based on.

If you enter =now() function to get the current date and time, both date and time are displayed, if you need a formula to get the current time dynamically, you can apply this formula: =MOD(NOW(),1), and then format it as time format. And then, you can use the formula in this article successfully.
Please try, hope it can help you!

If your time over midnight, you should apply the below formula:
In the above formula, C1 is the specific time you want to check for, and the TIME(22,0,0) and TIME(3,0,0) are the two times you want to check between. You should change the references to your need.
Please try it, hope it can help you!

To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 10 months agoI have 3 times (arrival, process and departure) which may span midnight, that I want to calculate the difference between. I am getting an error when I try to calculate the time between process and departure where the process is before midnight and the departure is after. For example my arrival time is 21:00, my process time is 23:00 and my departure time is 03:00 the difference should be 4 hours but I'm getting an error. I am using the following formula as I want to highlight where the process time is after the departure time =IF(ISBLANK(G3),"N/A",IF(E3=G3,"PROCESS TIME EQUALS DEPARTURE TIME",IF(E3>G3,E3-G3,IF(E3<G3,"PROCESS TIME AFTER DEPARTURE TIME")))) where E3 is my departure time and G3 is my process time. Any guidance gratefully received.
