I'm trying to come up with an elegant method to calculate the duration (in hours) of a process that executes at 4:15 AM every day.
The log produces a time stamp of when the process finishes
Trying to determine total duration for each run.
 
The attached Excel Workbook has the example data I'm working with.

Simplest solution wins the day and the points.

Thanks!

....or you might want to see the seconds - if so just change format to h:mm:ss
