## Calculating overtime hours on a bi-weekly basis

Hello all,

I was doing some research on a solution for my problem, but still haven't come across anything that matches my scenario; however, there is this old topic that calculates overtime hours on a weekly basis based on the sample table shown in the solution.

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Calculating-over-time-hours-for-employees/m-p/728653

However, I would like to calculate overtime for every two weeks (bi-weekly). Here is a sample table that I will be using. Is there a way to do this or is it just not possible? I've tried so many ways and looking up information with no luck.

Hi @pintobean87 ,

``````Measure =
var _a = RANKX(ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[Employee]),[Week Ending],MAX('Table'[Week Ending]),ASC,Dense)
var _b = MAXX(FILTER(ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[Employee]),[Week Ending]<MAX('Table'[Week Ending])),[Week Ending])
var _c = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Hours]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),[Employee]=MAX('Table'[Employee])&&[Week Ending]<=MAX('Table'[Week Ending])&&[Week Ending]>=_b))-40
return IF(_a=ODD(_a),BLANK(),_c)``````

Final output: Best Regards,

I have one last question! When an employee has less than 80 hours bi-weekly, a negative number is returned. This affects the total amount of hours for all employees (since I only want to see overtime hours). Is there a way to simply not return anything if overtime is below 80?  Community Support
