Projecting actual and scheduled hours

Hi Guys,
Please see the attached file. I am trying to project actual hours for a week.

It seems the formula, IF(NOW()>E3,E7,E6)+IF(NOW()>F3,F7,F6)+IF(NOW()>G3,G7,G6)+H6
should work but it doesn't.

Thank you
Robert

"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.

Note that Now() for today will always be greater than the date of today.

eg. 3/10/12 has the value = 40978 and at 10 AM Now() = 40978.42

This means that
=IF(NOW()>E3,E6,E5)+IF(NOW()>F3,F6,F5)+IF(NOW()<G3,G6,G5)+H5
will give this result
=E6+F6+G6+H5
and not
=E6+F6+G5+H5
that you expected as soon as 3/10/12 has started

Cheers,
Curt

Yes, that's correct. Today() for 3/10/12 = 40978

The problem with Now() is that it includes Hours, Minutes and Seconds.
