I have a spreadsheet that I am working on that displays the following information
A               B                                                              G
Time In       Time Out
8:00 AM      5:00 PM
8:00 AM      3:29 PM


I want it to display the hours between the 2 in column G. 9 hours for the first row and 7 hours 29 minutes for the second. Is that possible, what is the best way to do it?

I am using Excel 2010.

In G2 type the formula =B2-A2
then copy the formula down
Select column G and press ctrl+1 to goto the cell formatting
Goto 'custom' and type u:mm
This should show the time difference in hours and minutes

Hi JazzyJoop,

You are partially correct but I was able to get my solution based of what you said..

In addition to what you said I right clicked column G and click format cell. I selected 'time' and selected 13:30. When I tried to use what you proposed I got an error. I change your u:mm to h:mm and got a result but it listed it in AM or PM and I just wanted the hours and minutes. So the solution is as follows.

In G2 type =B2-A2
Copy the formula down to however many cells you need
Select column G; right click>Format Cells>
Select 'Time' to your left
Select 13:30 which is usually the second option.
Select OK

You should see the difference in hours and minutes from times input into column A and column B.

Yes you're right.
Indeed u:mm should be h:mm. That was a language issue/setting.
Selecting 13:30 gives me the same as h:mm.

I'm glad you figured it out and I could give you a starting point.
