I've got this huge data entry thing that has to be done monthly and it involves entering a start time and an end time. In order to speed it up, I like to be able to enter the times as 830 (in one cell) 930 (in the other cell). (Instead of 8:30 and 9:30 etc). I then need to find out the MINUTES between the two times (60 in this case). It gets complicated when the times are 759 to 801 because I end up having 42 as my answer... I've sort of found a way around it, but it's complicated. Is there some easy way of doing it that I've missed?
