# Calculate Business hours & Minutes between two date & Time

Hi Team,

Looking for a function which can provide hours and minute difference between two date and time considering business calendar.

calworkhours() only provide hours plus it rounds off it to nearest hour.

Looking for below calculation :

Start Time : 20/04/2023 10:00 AM

End Time : 24/04/2023 11:30 AM

Output -  hours : 17 , minutes 30

Calworkhours output - hours : 18

• OOTB calendar functions seems to be missing a function that calculate work minutes between two datetimes.

You can use the free Calendar function plugin available in Appmarket and use the below expression.

```a!localVariables(
local!minutes: calworkminutesplugin(ri!startTime, ri!endTime),
a!map(
hours: quotient(local!minutes, 60),
minutes: mod(local!minutes, 60)
)
)```

• Hi please refer to the below code, without plugin

```a!localVariables(
local!startdate: datetime(2023, 4, 20, 10, 0, 0),
local!enddate: datetime(2023, 4, 24, 11, 30, 0),
local!workday: calworkdays(local!startdate, local!enddate),
local!HoursofStartdate: hour(local!startdate),
local!Hoursofenddate: hour(local!enddate),
local!MinutesofStartdate: minute(local!startdate),
local!Minutesofenddate: minute(local!enddate),
local!UpdateHoursofStartdate: if(
local!HoursofStartdate >= 9,
local!HoursofStartdate - 9,
5 - local!HoursofStartdate
),
local!daycount: if(
local!MinutesofStartdate = 0,
local!UpdateHoursofStartdate,
if(
local!HoursofStartdate >= 9,
local!UpdateHoursofStartdate + 1,
local!UpdateHoursofStartdate - 1
),

),
local!firstdaycount: if(
local!HoursofStartdate >= 9,
8 - local!daycount,
local!daycount
),
local!Mcount: if(
local!MinutesofStartdate = 0,
0,
60 - local!MinutesofStartdate
),
local!lastdayCountcount2: local!Hoursofenddate - 9,
local!x: local!Minutesofenddate + local!Mcount,
local!y: if(local!x > 59, mod(local!x, 60), local!x),
local!total1: if(
local!x > 59,
local!lastdayCountcount2 + local!firstdaycount + 1,
local!lastdayCountcount2 + local!firstdaycount
),
local!total: a!forEach(
items: enumerate(local!workday - 2) + 1,
expression: local!total1 + 8 * fv!index
),
local!res: local!total[local!workday - 2] & "Hour " & local!y & "minute",
local!res
)```
