JACUSTOMER-118pt7q2- :

This does not solve what I need. I searched all of the microsoft templates and nothing there seems to do what I need. It is more complicated than a time sheet. I want to evaluate total hours on a specific job number. I need to be able to get a total number of hours on a job as well as total hours worked by employee.

jstinehelfer :

I am going to have to let another Expert tackle this one. Please stand by

what you need is MS. Access - then it is just a matter of creating a table that stores the data, a queries to see the data based on specific criteria. I could create such a database for you if you have the software.

I cannot invest in a new software at this time. We do not have Access. I was hoping that there was a way to accomplish this in Excel using its database capabilities.
Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 1 year ago.
I'm surprised, if you get MS office usually you get access, word, excel, powerpoint. etc.. Unless you got a version that didn't have access, access is the ideal way to go. But you could try something in excel called a Pivot Table. This allows you to sort, filter and manipulate data, without changing the source data. You can also sum a particular field, like getting total hours for example, quite easily

here is a tutorial:

Hello! I believe I know what you are looking for. I have created you a basic excel spreadsheet that does what you are describing. Feel free to modify it to meet your needs, but it should at the very least allow you to understand how to create exactly what you are looking for.
