Excel Hourly Data

I have an excel file that lists events, one per row, with a Start Date/Time and End/Date Time. (within the same day).

I want to expand this data so I can report on hourly usage.

For example, I have an event that begins 12/1/2012 8:00am and ends 12/1/2012 5:00pm. I want to show that the event took place at 8am, 9am, 10am, 11am, 12pm...etc. and eventually put this into a bar chart. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Are you hoping that the bar chart will have a column/bar that represents 9 hours? Rather than a column/bar for one occurence at 8am, one at 9am etc.

If the former, you can simply get the duration by using a formula

= FinishTime-StartTime

Finish and Start Time being cell references for those times.

This assumes that the data is in true date & time format.

Thanks. I've got the duration, but I have many events I want to depict. So If I have 5 meetings that are from 8am-5pm and 4 meetings that are from 8am-12pm, I want the 8am,9am,10am,11am and 12pm bars to show 9 meetings and the 1pm-4pm bars to show 5 meetings. Does that make sense?
