How to calculate hours worked and minus lunch time in Excel?
As a company employee, we need punch in and punch out every work day, counting the total worked time and minus the lunch time of a day can help to calculate salary according to the time. For example, I have the following daily attendance record which contains log in, log out and lunch start, lunch end times in a worksheet, now, I want to calculate the total hours worked but minus lunch time each day. To finish this job, I can introduce some formulas for you.
Add a number of years / months / days / weeks / hours / minutes / seconds to date:
Kutools for Excel’s Formulas utility contains some commonly-used formulas, such as add years to date, calculate age based on birthday and so on. With these usual formulas, you can quickly get the result that you want without remembering any formulas. Read more about this feature...

The following formulas can help you to calculate worked time a day based on the time records.
1. Enter this formula: =SUM((C2-B2)+(E2-D2))*24 into a blank cell beside your time record cells, F2, for instance, see screenshot:
Note: In the above formula: C2 is the lunch start time, B2 is the log in time, E2 indicates the log out time and D2 is the lunch end time. You can change the references based on your need.
2. Then drag the fill handle down to the cells that you want to apply this formula, and all the total hours worked excluding the lunch time are calculated at once. See screenshot:
Tips: If there are log in, log out time record and fixed lunch time, (such as one hour and thirty minutes), you can apply this simple formula: =D2-B2-C2 to calculate the worked hours a day. See screenshot:

How would the formula look if you place an x in the break taken column, and the break is automatic 1/2 hour?
- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 7 months agoI track my start time in A1 and my end time in B1. In C1 is the formula =TEXT(B1-A1,"h") This works, but I can't figure out how to subtract an hour for lunch within this formula. I don't track my start lunchtime and end lunchtime since it will always be 1 hour. Is there a way to do this?

The in and out are coming one beneath the other and not as you show in your examples (one next to the other).
Is there a way to formulate the table to calculate total daily hours in this layout, considering that I may have multiple entries and exits a day?

Sorry, I can't get your point, could you give an example or screenshot here? Thank you!

Found something laying around that actually solves your question.
Columns D, E and F are the Start time, End Time and Break.
Have a table somewhere that explains the breaks that have to be calculated:
from till Pause
0:00 6:00 0:00
6:00 9:00 0:30
9:00 10:00 0:45
Then use the following expresssion (note that my reference to the table are on a tab called Anhang):

If that time is over 6 hours there has to be a 30 minute lunch. I want a formula that will calculate that time worked including a lunch IF it's over 6 hours

What would the formula be if a minimum of 8.5 hours of work is required but the employee worked 10 hours.
I want a formula ex: 08:50 - 10:00 and then the obvious answer is 01:50 with the option to calculate a weeks overtime or shortfall?

- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 1 years agoI would also like the answer to this. Can it be varied? Example: 12 hour shift workers get an hour break, as do 11 and 10 hour shit workers. However, if you work 8 or 9 hours you get 45 minutes deducted, 6 - 7 hours have 30 minutes deducted and 5 hours have 15 minutes deducted. Any hours worked below 5 do not incur a break.
