Time interval between two timestamps but except closed hours

Hi I need some help with Time interval between two timestamps. The function give me the interval without any problem

Sum ([SLA Resolution Time]-interval([Resolve Date]-[Open Date],'hh:mm:ss'))

But my problem start when working hour is 0700 - 1800 so is there any easy solution so the time between 18;00;01 and 06;59;59 will not be counted in above function?

Thanks in advance

Hi Banjir,

could you give an example? Or even better send a sample QVW?

You may take the numerical difference between the two timestamps. Multiply integer part by 11 and fractional part by 24 to get the hours. This assumes that both the timestamps are in the 7:00 - 18:00 window of time. The attached qvw file shows this simple implementation.

If you have to take into account the non-working hours of holidays and weekends, and if you have to check if the timestamps fall in the working hours, some additional development is needed.

Hope this helps.

As posted in my own subject;

I have managed to solve the issue, based on an excel example on this site http://chandoo.org/wp/2010/09/10/working-hours-formula/.

The sollution is as follows:

//$1 WorkDayStart. Format 9, 9.5, 21
//$2 WorkDayEnd.Format 9, 9.5, 21
//$3 TimeStampStart. Format DateTime
//$4 TimeStampEnd. Format DateTime

Set fxCalcWorkHours = (($2-$1)*NetWorkDays($3,$4))  -(24*(  FMOD($3,1)  -($1/24)  +($2/24)  -FMOD($4,1) ));

So you can load it into a table with the command:

Load *,

$(fxCalcWorkHours(9,18,StartDateTime, EndDateTime) as WorkHoursSpent;
