get hours worked between two datetime fields

Posted on 2016-09-26

I have a table of hours worked and I need to calculate the time worked between two periods

table
EmployeeID               StartDateTime                 EndDateTime
100                               09/01/2016 08:00:00    09/01/2016 16:45:00
101                               09/01/2016 15:15:00    09/02/2016 18:00:00
102                               09/01/2016 11:00:00    09/01/2016 18:45:00

I need to write a query that will pull back the number of hours worked for all employees between say
on 9/1/16 between the times of 10am to 1pm
so that would be a total of 5 hours
emp 100 has 3 hours
emp 101 has 0 hours
emp 102 has 2 hours

who would I write that?

Something like this:

DECLARE @StartDateTime datetime
DECLARE @EndDateTime datetime

SET @StartDateTime = '20160901 10:00'
SET @EndDateTime = '20160901 13:00'

SELECT CAST(SUM(DATEDIFF(MINUTE,
CASE WHEN StartDateTime < @StartDateTime THEN @StartDateTime ELSE StartDateTime END,
CASE WHEN EndDateTime > @EndDateTime THEN @EndDateTime ELSE EndDateTime END))
/ 60.0 AS decimal(9, 2)) AS Total_Hours_Worked
FROM table_name
WHERE StartDateTime <= @EndDateTime AND EndDateTime > @StartDateTime

CREATE TABLE testDt
(
EmployeeID INT
,StartDateTime DATETIME
,EndDateTime DATETIME
)
GO

INSERT INTO testDt VALUES
(100                               ,'09/01/2016 08:00:00'    ,'09/01/2016 16:45:00'),
(101                               ,'09/01/2016 15:15:00'    ,'09/02/2016 18:00:00'),
(102                               ,'09/01/2016 11:00:00'    ,'09/01/2016 18:45:00')
GO

DECLARE @Date AS DATE = '2016-09-01'
DECLARE @StartTime AS TIME = '10:00'
DECLARE @EndTime AS TIME = '13:00'

SELECT CONCAT(  'Emp ', EmployeeID , ' has '  ,
CASE WHEN
CAST((DATEDIFF(MINUTE,
CASE WHEN StartDateTime < st THEN st ELSE StartDateTime END,
CASE WHEN EndDateTime > et THEN et ELSE EndDateTime END))
/ 60.0 AS INT) <= 0 THEN 0 ELSE
CAST((DATEDIFF(MINUTE,
CASE WHEN StartDateTime < st THEN st ELSE StartDateTime END,
CASE WHEN EndDateTime > et THEN et ELSE EndDateTime END))
/ 60.0 AS INT) END , ' Hours' ) Output
FROM
(
SELECT EmployeeID , StartDateTime , EndDateTime , DATEDIFF(dd, 0,@Date) + CONVERT(DATETIME,@StartTime) st , DATEDIFF(dd, 0,@Date) + CONVERT(DATETIME,@EndTime) et
FROM testDt t
)r

Sorry for the delay, I honestly thought I had put in my comments a while back.
