Narita, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, then return to Narita

I cannot find a train schedule that makes any kind of sense in English....there are no timetables that I can find or see anywhere....the information relates things like 002....this makes no sense to me...

I need to know HOW LONG will it take to get from Osaka train station to the Narita Airport....I have flight at 7:00 pm out of Narita and plan to leave Osaka in the morning.....How many hours on the train will it take?
