A set-based approach to doing the basic task is to convert your set of 
start/stop times into duration values. The timediff() function mentioned 
already is a good way to do this.

CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE tmpHours SELECT EmployeeID, timediff(logouttime, 
logintime) as duration FROM sourcetable;

At this point, you have a temporary table of (EmployeeID, duration). It 
becomes very simple to write a summary query:

SELECT employeeid, sum(duration) as totalhours from tmpHours group by 

If you want to breakdown your final report by other values (by date, by 
week, by shift, etc) then you need to compute those and add them to the 
tmpHours table when you create it.
