Another Time Question in excel...going past midnight

I made a time calculator the other day with the help from EE. Now, I am trying to build on that to make a time card that will track specialty pay.
We work 24 hour shift (0700-0700). My idea is to make a "sheet log" that will track the time. Then I can use a pivot table to group and total.

I tried simply =F6-E6 which is fine until I hit a time frame that goes accross midnight.
Then, I tired the =MOD(F6-E6,1)*24 that I learned from the time card project.

I am not certain if I have this set up correctly to be able to count the time past midnight.

Thanks pivot-time-card.xlsx

The version with MOD, will work in most cases but if you want to get 24 for 07:00 to 07:00 then try this formula in G6 copied down

=(F6-E6+(E6>=F6))*24

and format as number

see attached
