Can I use cell history to calculate how much time has taken between two non-date cell types?

Hello SS Community,


I have a sheet that is used by medical professionals.  We need to calulate the time between a cell that is filled out when a patient arrives, and one that is filled out when they leave.  The cells are text based and not date type, nor are they cells where the user is typing in a time (so I cant simply export and calc in excel).


I can see the time of day in the cell history, is there a way I can calculate the number of hours passed from Cell 1 to Cell 2, if I have time stamps from the cell history.  The sheet si aslo too large for this to be a manual process, plus it's a hospital, no one has time for that?!?


thansk in advance, the help is much appreciated!!!
