  1. When I move to a cell the "TIME IN" cell automatically picks up the time stamp for the current date and time. Colum A & B
  2. Once that cell (Column B) is filled with a time stamp another cell in a corresponding row/column starts an elapsed time clock that starts counting up.
  3. Then when I move to the "TIME OUT" cell the elapsed time stops leaving the total elapsed time in the

Date Start            TIME IN            ELAPSED TIME                                       TIME OUT
