Now we will create an employee attendance sheet with time for the first employee (i.e. Mike Adams). In order to do so, follow the steps below.

### Step 1: Format Cells

To create an employee attendance sheet with time in Excel, we have to format cells of the dataset first.

• First, create a dataset as shown below for an employee with columns Day, Date, Entry Time, Lunch Break, Exit Time, Overtime, and Total. For example, we have created a dataset for Mike Adams in this example.

• Second, select cells (B6:B12) >> right-click on your mouse >> click on Format Cells like the image below.

### Step 2: Assign Date and Day

• Subsequently, type the dates in the Date column and type the days in the Day column serially as shown below.

### Step 3: Allocate Entry, Exit, Overtime, and Lunch Break

To keep track of the employees, we have to allocate Entry, Exit, Overtime, and Lunch Break for the employees.

• After that, type the Entry Time, Lunch Break, Exit Time, and Overtime for a specific date and day of the employee.

• Next, assign all the Entry Time, Lunch Break, Exit Time, and Overtime for a whole week for that employee as shown below.

### Step 4: Calculate Total Time

Afterward, we will calculate the total working hours of the employee for specific days by Excel formula.

• Now, to calculate the total working hours of a particular day for that employee, select cell H6 and type the following formula:
`=F6-D6+G6`
• Next, press Enter and you will see the total working hours for the day of Mike Adams.

• Afterward, select cell H6 and drag the Fill Handle down till cell H11 as shown below.
• Hence, it will display the total working hours of other days of Mike Adams.

### Step 5: Set Weekend

In order to set weekends for the employee, follow the steps below.

• Now, to set weekend, select cells (D12:H12)>> go to Home tab >> click on Merge and Center as shown below.

• Consequently, it will merge and center cells (D12:H12) like the below one.

• After that, select the merged cell >> click on B to bold the text in that cell >> click on Text Color drop-down >> choose Red Color like the image below.
