Hi I am trying to create a formula which does the following:

IFS [day] = "sat or "sun", [over time] = [hours worked], [day]<>"sat"or"sun" AND [hours worked]>8,[hours worked]-8

can anyone help me with the right brackets and syntax? Basically if the site guys enter 8 hours on a sunday it should all be counted as over time, if they enter 9 hours on a Monday, one hour of that should count as over time. Hope I have explained my problem well enough

I got the if sat or sun formula to work using if(or)

=IF(OR(Day349 = "sat", Day349 = "sun"), [Total Daily Hours]349)

but when I added the next step I could not get it to work

My attempt is below:

=IF(AND(OR(Day349 = "sat", Day349 = "sun"), [Total Daily Hours]349), [Total Daily Hours]349 > 8, [Total Daily Hours]349 - 8)

all help much appreciated
