I have a spreadsheet (attached) - for timesheets - in which a job number (entered in Column C) is allocated a time expended on it by the operative (start and finish times in columns F and G) The operative enters the job number and the time spent on that job, manually throughout the day. I have arranged it so that any job number, if repeated later in the day, does not appear again in the column P, as I want now to accumulate all the times spent on that or any other particular job to be shown against that job number in Column P.
The problem I face is adding up the times (which are in column H) so that they appear next to the job number that now appears only once in Column P. That way, I can gather all the time spent by each operative on any job automatically, without having to manually add up all the times against every job. I hope that's clear.
How do I put, in (say) column Q the total time spent on that job number throughout the day, for each of the job numbers? Note where there are blank cells in Column P, this is where the job number is already repeated earlier in the day.Daily-Timesheet--RA-version--r2.xlsx
