# how to Calculate Overtime in excel

Create an Excel Timesheet that calculates overtime hours.

Step 1:

Create a basic timesheet as described in  Part A.
Add lunch breaks if desired, as described on Part B.

Step 2: Data Entry

In Cell J1 : type employee's hourly rate
In cell J2: type employee's overtime rate.

Change the Total Hours column to read: Regular Hours (Column F)
Add a new column called: Overtime Hours (Column G)
To simplify, you might want to remove the "Total Pay" Column

Format Columns F & G to "Number" with 2 Decimal places

Step 3: Calculate Hours worked

In Cell F2, type:     =IF((((C2-B2)+(E2-D2))*24)>8,8,((C2-B2)+(E2-D2))*24)
In cell G2, type        =IF(((C2-B2)+(E2-D2))*24>8, ((C2-B2)+(E2-D2))*24-8,0)

Step 4: Drag down and total

In cell F10, sum regular hours, =SUM(F2:F8)
In cell G10, sum overtime hours =SUM(G2:G8)

Step 4: Calculate Pay:

In cell F11, type: =SUM(F10*\$J\$1)
In cell F12, type =SUM(G10*\$J\$2)

Sum F11 and F12 for total pay.  Type  =SUM(F11+G11)
