Options
✭✭✭✭

I have the below columns for standard flat rate, travel, and 3 overtime columns (O/T hrs). I want to calculate the O/T hours, according to which overtime column the hours are in, under Total O/T. Appreciate help with getting the formula right.

Hi @Andrée Starå, thanks for responding. It came up with = #UNPARSEABLE. Had a review of the formula and changed to below, then it worked. Thanks for getting me on the right track.

=[O/T Hrs(1)]@row * 1 + 1.5 * [O/T Hrs(1.5)]@row + 2 * [O/T Hrs(2)]@row

I hope you're well and safe!

Try something like this.

```=[O/T Hrs (1)]@row + 1,5 * [O/T Hrs (1.5)]@row + 2 * [O/T Hrs (2)]@row
```

Depending on your country/region, you'll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

Did that work/help?

I hope that helps!

Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

Best,

Excellent!

You're more than welcome!

Yes, it's because of the differences between regions.

Depending on your country/region, you'll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.
