Calculate hours worked in a day - 4 steps:

Step 1: Data Entry

On Column A:         Enter the days of the week
On Column B:        Enter the time work started, in an hh:mm format

You may use AM/PM or military time, but be consistent within your timesheet
8:54 AM (8 colon 54 space AM)
5:00 PM (5 colon 00 spcae PM)

On Column C        Enter the time work ended

Step 2: Calculate hours worked

On column D:         Type:  =SUM(C2-B2)*24
                        Change the cell format to "Number" with 2 decimal places.

Step 3: Calculate Pay

Cell H1            Type the hourly pay of that employee

On Column E:      =SUM(D2*$H$1)  
                    (The $-$ will prevent the cell number to roll over when you copy the formula down through the days of the week)

Step 4: Drag down and finish

Drag the formulas of Column D & E through the days of the week 

Cell D9:    For total hours, use =SUM(D2:D8)
