#### NEED HELP - Calculating dates and times

```Hello,

Below is an example of my spreadsheet...

RecvdDate	RecvdTime	ClosedDateClosedTimeCall Duration
9/3/2004	10:39:22	9/3/2004	12:35:37   (Need formula)
5/9/2005	16:00:52	5/12/2005	14:34:47
5/12/2005	11:57:11	5/12/2005	12:48:35
5/12/2005	12:55:53	5/12/2005	14:51:19
5/13/2005	13:39:08	5/16/2005	15:21:58
5/17/2005	16:58:59	5/25/2005	13:00:01

I need to determine the hours it takes to resolve a Help Desk issue.  I hope
that you can help me with this.

```Note that this formatting fails if the user selects (or has opened a
previous workbook set to) the 1904 date system, since "dd" is day of the
month, not elapsed days.

Likewise, if the elapsed time is greater than 31 days, the displayed
value will be wrong.

```Multiplying by 24 will give hours...

=(B2-A2)*24

But there's no need to combine the dates and times:

=(C2+D2-A2-B2)*24

```I think
=C1-A1+D1-B1
would work for you.

Excel newbie needs help from math wiz (poker related)
I want to create a Excel workbook that will help in specific poker situations. Short version: I want to be able to calculate how often my opponent will need to fold for an all-in raise to show a positive expectation. Explanation: In poker you can win a hand by having the best hand at the end OR getting your opponent to fold. A common situation comes up where you have a "drawing hand" and face a bet by your opponent. In this situation you know you are currently behind in the hand, but have a chance to win if you catch some of your "outs" (cards that will give you th...

Need to test a mobo
I had a power surge about 3 weeks ago - lost a drive, now making ticking noises. I had another two drive that seem to work sporadically now. So, I thought it might have been my power supply.

So I am starting to wonder if it is my mobo - but how can I test this out? I am using a dual boot - Win XP and Win 7 - both drives work and don't work. Up and down. Right now my Win7 ...

I have an Excel worksheet which stored a survey outcome of over 1200 members. There are over 30 questions in the survey and the first column captured the member ID. The problem is 3 of the survey questions that allow multiple answers, instead the answer for those three questions are captured in seperate column, the answers are stored in a single column and it makes it very difficult to analysis those result.
