How to calculate utilization by time of day


I need help to calculate the utilization of a room by time of day with MS Excel.

For instance, an individual uses a room from 8:15 - 17:30.  How do I take this date range and show the utilization in one hour intervals from 00:00 to 23:00:

7:00-8:00 - 0 min
8:00-9:00 - 45 min
9:00-10:00 - 60 min
17:00-18:00 - 30 min

I need to perform this caclutation on hundreds of rooms with an automated formula or code.

Thank you

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here is a suggestion:

Keep column A as your start time, format cell as Time (I use the 1:30 PM format)
Keep column B as your end time, format cell as Time
Set column C with a formula of   =SUM(B1-A1)   also format cell as Time

If you have an 8:00AM start and and 10:00AM end, column C will display the time as 2:00 hours
If you change the time format, or need to divide by hours (ie: 48 hours = 2 Days, etc) you can run additional math. I hope this leads you in the right track, or give me more samples with real times or a sample spreadsheet.

Take care.
