Hi Experts,
 
    I have a spreadsheet that I'd like to be able to track time on for each incident that work.   I've attached a spreadsheet that will hopefully describe what I'd like to do.  Just need a start button and a stop button that will track time.  It can also be one button where as you click it and the timer starts, then click again and it stops -- I'm open with this.

Hmmmh! Interesting, but the work flow isn't quite clear.
On your worksheet you have a number of projects, each project represented by one row.
Is that right?
If so, we could number the projects by the rows they are in.
Are there different timers for each project? We could give the timers the same numbers as the projects.
When you start work on project 2 you wish for its timer to start. When you click the Stop button you wish it to stop. And where do we write the timer result?
Your column L seems to be dedicated to this purpose. Would the time passed since pressing Start be added to the time recorded in column L previously?
Would you need an indication which timer is currently running?
Would you need the clock to be "ticking", like advancing every second or minute?

Could you start more than one timer at a time?
Or would clicking another Start button automatically set a Stop to the one currently active?

Trying to have fewer buttons, would it be possible to select a project by clicking its row and then let the Start button start the timer for the selected row?
