I am wanting to compare elapsed times from competitive swimming events and cannot get the cell formatting correct. The elapsed times include minutes, seconds and hundredths of seconds. Once I have the cell formatting correct, I am looking for a formula that will compare elapsed times by event from one swim meet to the next. For example, in Meet #1, the elapsed time for a specific event might be 59.41 seconds, and in Meet 2, the elapsed time might be 1:01.32 (minutes, seconds, hundredths of a second) for the same event. The bottom line is I want to determine which meet had overall faster times, event by event. Anybody worked with something similar?
