Excel/overtime formula


Time Sheet
Time Sheet  
I have a time sheet template that I am having trouble with.  My employees work long hours most days of the week.  occasionally they could have a four hour day in the middle of the week or several four hour days.  I am trying to separate reg. time vs. overtime.  if they work more than eight hours I would like it to show up in the OT column.  But I If they do not get 40 hours for the week there should be no OT.  B14:B20 are Monday-Friday, C14 is time in, D14 is time out, E14 is time in, F14 is time out, (lunch break), H14 is Regular time, I14 is overtime.

This formula puts 8 hours in reg and extra in OT but it stops putting reg time after the reg and OT get to 40.  I would like it to show the OT each day but I want the reg time to get to forty.  Is there a way to make this happen?  Thank you in advance for the assistance!

Sorry it took so long to get back to you - I was away on vacation. I don't understand "...but I want the reg time to get to forty." What do yuo mean by that? Right now the total of the regular time is 25.5. Are you saying you want this to keep showing the values until the total reaches 40?
