Hello again, Experts, I need your help.

See attached example.  Column A contains date/time entries (1/6/2014  7:38:52 PM).  I want to sub-total them by how many entries there are for each hour segment.  For example:
1/2/2014 5pm = 3
1/3/2014 5pm = 4
1/6/2014 5pm=  3
1/6/2014 6pm = 1
1/6/2014 7pm = 1

Thanks,
Gary (frigid still in Cincinnati)

First place a space before PM in your entries in column B, then try:

=COUNTIFS(A:A,">="&B2,A:A,"<"&B2+TIME(1,0,0))

copied down.

You can also summarize with a Pivot Table.

Select the column.. go to Insert Pivot Table, drag the item to the Row Label area, then drag again to the Summation area.

You can then right click the row label column and select Group, then select Dates and Hours (you can adjust Start/End times)

Have you tested this formula in Col B of my sample file?
I get a circular reference warning.

The formula goes in column C.  It references your column B inputs against the column A data.

Ok, so I am a newbie to Pivot Tables...

I got the Summation area drop...
Col B now shows "Count of Start Date/Time"

[ right click the row label column and select Group, then select Dates and Hours ]

When I "right click col A" I don't see a "select group" option.
What to do?

In the actual Pivot table that was created, right click in the left column, and you should see a Group category.  Select that.  You may see that "Months" is preselected.  Deselect that first.  Then select Hours and select Days.

At the top check the Starting At checkbox and adjust the time so that it has 17:00:00 as the time (assuming 5:00 PM is your smallest time entry).

Click Ok to finish.

You can then go to the Design tab in the PivotTable Tools section of the Ribbon that is active when you are in the Pivot table.  From the Report Layout section, select Show in Tabular Form (you might like that format better).

A2 = A1 That kind of cell reference is relative.  If you copy it from A2 to B2, then B2 will get this: B2 = B1 That's all fine and good, but if you then insert a new row above row 2, you'll find: A3 = A1 B3 = B1 This is intentional. …
