Excel
posted by John .
I have my employee schedule in a excel sheet. It is a weekly schedule that doesn't change week by week, but changes day by day within a week. Every Monday, Tuesday, etc. is the same schedule. In the file are days for Monday, Tuesday, etc.. I don't know if this possible, but I would like to utilize excel to calculate a employees total expected hours automatically. I however have no idea how to do this in excel and am not exactly sure how.
Let me try and explain this. So lets say cell A7B9 was Monday 3:00 P.M.  7:00 P.M., the name in the cell was John Smith, the numerical value associated with the cell (that I would have to have predefined I assume some how) would be 4 (the total time of the shift). This would be done for every shift on the schedule. The system would then sum the total time for all shifts associated with a particular employee to get the employees expected weekly hour total for each employee.
Is there a way to do this in excel or perhaps another program which I can write a function like this?
Basically I want to be able to automatically calculate the total expected hours of all my employees in a week off of a schedule in an excel sheet. Cell include employees name if they are working the shift.
Thanks for any help!!!

I know there's a way to do this, and it has to do with formulas and linking them from one worksheet to another. Read widely:
