Hi Experts

Firstly A Merry Christmas to you all, I think you do a sterling job helping us amateurs. At my age now, it probably is too late to try and grasp all that Excel can offer, but your help is very much appreciated. And that is not a sychophantic statement either !

I have yet another problem which I hope you may be able to help as I am totally stumped. I need to interrogate a huge SAP download to determine whether shift people have worked "Double shifts".

The daily shift pattern is Mornings 7.8 hours, Afternoons 8.2 hours, Nights 7.2 hours. It is a 5 Crew Shift System on a 35 day rolling calendar. The list is about 13000 rows of data and if I were to attack this manually, I would be in cuckoo land by the end. (If, indeed, I could get to the end).

The list is a download sorted in Shift, Name and Date order.
I hope that you can help.
