I have two columns with times in each in seconds. I need a formula for the difference between the two columns, which is easy. The part that gets me is that sometimes the first column is the higher number and sometimes the 2nd column is the higher number. I do not want negatives to show up, simply the difference in seconds between the columns regardless of which column has a higher time. (These are two races and I am looking for the most consistant runner with the closest time.)

It's not zero, it's a fraction of an integer. Dates and times are different in Excel. One complete day (24 hours) is 1 whole number. So 12 hours will be 0.5 as a numerical value. You just need to either show more decimal places or format as time. :)

Oops! I forgot to update the cell address when I copied/pasted. I think this will work! Thanks.
