    Angry Formula for Filtered Time Average

    I used =TEXT(G2-G3,"[h]:m") in Office 2016 to calculate the delivery time between stages for multiple orders. Now I have filtered the various stages of the order delivery to only show deliveries between two cities. I want to calculate the average delivery time (hours, minutes) per city, but all of the formulas i have tried--subtotal, average, averageif, averagea, averageifs, vlookup--have all failed. How do I calculate the average time (hours: minutes) for a column of filtered times (calculated by =TEXT(G2-G3,"[h]:m")? Been working on this for several days and would desperately appreciate some help, thank you.

    Don't use TEXT ... that's what you get. Just use G2-G3 and use a Custom format "[h]:m". Then SUBTOTAL should work.

    Re: Formula for Filtered Time Average

    Or you can use something like this:

    =ABS(TIME(HOUR(B3),MINUTE(B3),SECOND(B3))-TIME(HOUR(B4),MINUTE(B4),SECOND(B4)))

    and use SUBTOTAL as TMS said

    TMS, thanks for your advice. I tried =(B3-B2,"[h]:m"), but it won't work, when I click "Enter" a sign pops up saying something is wrong and it can't be completed

    PaulM100, thanks for the formula and file, I tried it and the result was there, just in decimals. Is there a way I can change the formula to show it in h:m?

    Right click - Format - Custom - Type in the box [h]:mm - Ok

    Should be changed afterwards. Also, the ABS in formula changes the numbers to positive. If you want negative numbers remove it.

    Re: Formula for Filtered Time Average

    If it doesn't change is there a code to fix that?

    Re: Formula for Filtered Time Average

    Hey I finally figured it out! ABS didn't work for me, I ended up changing the format of both columns to "time hh:mm:ss" and then going with the class =G3-G2 and subtotal 1 for average. thank you so much for your advice, have a great day!
