Join Dennis Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Calculating time differences within and between days, part of Excel 2013: Working with Dates and Times.

We simply want 4:14.…So we can quickly go into format cells with Ctrl+1,or right-click and format…cells, and on the time category, on the number tab, choose 13:30.…Click OK and there's the answer we want,…16 hours and 14 minutes between these two times.…Double-clicking to copy this down the column, we have…the answers for the other sets of numbers as well.…So subtracting times, different times within the same day, a simple formula.…
