  2. Applying a formula in Excel to calculate the response time.
Follow the sections below in order for steps on how to calculate response times:

Applying a formula in Excel

Confirmation Formula in Excel
  1. Add an additional column to the .CSV file. In the example pictured, a column named Time to Confirm has been added at cell J1.
  2. In the cell beneath the new column (J2 in the example), enter the following formula and press Enter: =INT(C2-E2) & " days, " & HOUR(C2-E2) & " hours, " & MINUTE(C2-E2) & " minutes and " & SECOND(C2-E2) & " seconds"
    1. NOTE: The "C2" and "E2" entries in the above formula correlate to the Confirmation Time (column C) and Sent On (column E) positions on the CSV file. If the fields entered into the DATA pane were done a different order when building the report in the section above, the Confirmation Time and Sent On columns will be different.
  3. Expand the formula down the required amount of rows to calculate the response time by positioning the cursor over the lower right corner of the cell (the cursor icon will change to a solid black + sign) and then dragging the selection to the desired cell.
    1. NOTE: There is no value in cell J3 as there is no value in cell C3.
