I have a column of start times ranging anywhere from 23:30 (11:30 PM) to 01:00 (1:00 AM). at the end of the year I will have 365 start times. I need an average start time for that column. As long as I am Past midnight Average(A:A) works great. But prior to midnight is a nightmare.
Using these 3 numbers 00:01, 00:01, 00:01 the average is 00:01 which is correct and obvious, BUT if I have 23:59, 00:01, 00:01 I get 08:00 as the average. All cells are formatted [hh]:mm. The start time starts at around mid-night and may begin early such as 23:00 or run late such as 01:00. Any ideas on this? I'm Stumped. All times are at night. Times start in column D6, Average is in D5 (+Average(D6:D370) Times will never be sooner than 23:00 or later than 01:30. But they will be 7 days a week for the entire year.
05:06 <-- This is D5 the average with the numbers listed below. in Column "D"
23:54 chang this to 00:00 and average becomes 00:19
