#### Calculating turaround time using IF function

```I'm just learning to use the IF function, and it is not calculating
correctly, so am looking for help.  I'm using Excel 2000.

For my spreadsheet, if a document is made available after 1700 hours
or before 0700 hours the following day, I want it to calculate the
turnaround time for those reports to begin at 0700 hours; otherwise
calculate the remainder of the reports from the time the report became
available to completion.  Here's the IF statement I'm attempting to
use with little success.

E=Time report available
I=Finish time

=IF(OR(E>"17:00:00",E<"07:00:00),0700-I,I-E)

```

Copy your formula directly from the worksheet to the post if you want help.  The
one you typed above is not valid.

Is it possible a report is made available before 17:00 but finished the next day?

You might be looking for something like this:

=IF(OR(E1>--"17:00:00",E1<--"07:00:00"),I1-"07:00:00",I1-E1)
```

Tried it out and yes, this works, except for those reports that are
available before 17:00.  When this occurs, it would need calculated
from the time in that cell to 17:00 and then from 07:00 until
completion the next day.  Not sure how to set this up.

Looking for an excel function which can mirror opposite the data

Switching companies using SQL Passthrough
I have an application that uses SQL_Passthrough. As part of the code you must execute a statement that uses the appropriate database.

ProbleM: when I restore a mailbox using Exmerge with a pst file, nothing is transferred.

There is no error messages, and Emerge goes through the motions (though it finishes supsiciously quick), but when I open the mailbox, no emails have been restored.

Formula to process 3 cells using IF statements

Entire Visio page moves whenever I use the directional arrow keys instead of the object I've clicked on
