Converting time into Dollars

EE Professionals,

I have a timesheet that has a Time-In and a Time-Out.  I am trying to calculate the amount of time that transpires between the In and Out record (Column E) and then simply multiply it times a Rate per Hour to give me a result.  I need the formula for calculating Column E.

Much thanks in advance,

Thanks for the formula.  Unfortunately it doesn't work.  4pm to 1am isn't .38 hrs. (Column E).

Can you take a look at the spreadsheet?

Thank you,

Got it.  Now look at G.  What is the formula I use to calculate the Amount?

Right now I'm using   =(([@Hours]*Hourly_Rate)+[@Additional]), but that's not working.

Thank you!
