I need to plot a Stress vs Strain Line graph. My data is in two columns and I've spent the past hour trying to find a way for the chart to read my Strain values for the X-axis and my Stress values for the Y-axis, but it only will accept Y-axis values for the table range.

trying to create a timesheet calculator for calculating my hours. I only have 20 hrs a week but they round down the number in increments of .25 or 15 minutes. For Example, if one day I only worked for 6 hours and 10 minutes (which is about 6.22 in decimal) but since I hadn't worked the full 6.25 hours it rounds the hour to 6.00 instead. so I'm wondering how to tell it to round down in increments of 0.25. any ideas?

Excel Question I would like to figure out a start time of 0700 hours and an end time of 1530 hours, with 1/2 hour lunch deducted. But first I would like to enter the time without having to put in the colon. So what I figured my work is that my start time of 0700 entered into the cell g15 and my end time of 1530 entered into the cell of h15. I used the custom format 00\:00. What formula can be entered into cell I15, where it calculates the total hours worked and minus the half hour lunch if worked more than five hours?

ive separated a cell to 2 individual times: 10:05 - 10:35 using =IF(E3="","",LEFT(\$E3,SEARCH("-",\$E3,1)-1)). So now i have 2 cells that read 10:05 and 10:35 receptively. Id like to add an offset, either + or - a certain amount of time. So i have "10:05 - Offset time (in this case we'll use 1 hour) = 9:05. No problems up to this point. once i put the same equation against the "10:35" time, i get a #value error.

To get a feel of things based on production and their capabilities. Weekly graph with colored lines for true average to see trends in production, product downside or consistent trends week after week or a stacked chart daily showing where production was spent that day (wires, pads, halo, kits, glue) that will allow us to see trends by the day or date of the week. Total product completed per hour

I need to get some trend data. I have my day of the week all equal to a numerical value (1-7). However, my date/time field is throwing this off. It is currently: 12/10/2017 12:45:00 AM. But I only need hh. I want to show the count of calls that come in per hour on a given day of the week.
