Hello....I have a column in excel which I want to find the average of.The data in the rows are times in hours and minutes e.g 2.15, 3.45, 4.43 etc.How do I do this without them being treated as decimals and not hours and minutes??
thanks

=(INT(A1)+INT(A2)+INT(A3)+MOD(A1,1)+MOD(A2,1)+MOD(A3,1))/3

No forget that...

=INT(AVERAGE(A1:A3)) + MOD(AVERAGE(A1:A3),1)*0.6

sorry VOG....could you tell me how to use this formula.
the heading is in A1 then below it are the times going down to A74
thanks

In any other cell enter

=INT(AVERAGE(A2:A74)) + MOD(AVERAGE(A2:A74),1)*0.6

The easiest wat to do what you want is to convert all of your times expressed like 2.45 into Excel times 2:45.

To do this select A2:A74, Edit | Replace. In the Find What box enter . and in the Replace with box enter : then click Replace All.

In any other cell the following will give you the average:

=AVERAGE(A2:A74)

(You may need to format this cell as time if Excel doen't do that automatically)

thanks VOG.....the time in the cells already have : between the figures.My fault.Will possibly not need to use the replace calc then.s using the formula seems to have worked though so will tick as resolved.Once again thanks for your time and input VOG

The replace command does need to be used to make the calculation work
cheers....a nice cold beer awaits thanks
