# Total Leaves Calculation in Monthly Attendance Sheet

ERPNext Version 13.3.0

Hello Folks,

Here is something I noticed in the summarized view of the monthly attendance sheet report. `Half-day present and half-day absent are represented by 0.5`. The pattern I noticed in attendances narrows down to the following formulas.

Total Presents = Actual Presents + (0.5) x Total Half Days
Total Absents = Actual Absents + (0.5) x Total Half Days
Total Leaves = Total Leaves + (0.5) x Total Half Days

Senario: If an employee has 3 half days and 4 absents in a month on 26 working days. His` total presents are 19+(0.5) x 3 = 20.5`. Similarly, his `total absents are 4 + (0.5) x 3 = 5.5`. So the total working days are 20.5 + 5.5 = 26.

Suppose, his employee does not have any leaves in these 26 days. But still, ERPNext calculate the` total leaves as, 0 + 0.5 x 3 = 1.5`. Why is it so that half of the half-day is added in absents as well in leaves. Shouldn’t it be added in only one category, depending on the nature of the half day?

I searched the forum but couldn’t find anything relevant, hopefully would get some great suggestions from the nice people here.

Stay blessed and safe.

**UPDATE : ** I also noticed that this `total leaves` are fetched in `Leaves Without Pay` when creating `Salary Slip` for an employee. Which is then used to deduct amount from salary component and calculate the `Net Salary`.
