Hi there <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>
I have a list of times that I want to collate. I need to count the no of occurrences:<o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
Under 30 seconds<o:p></o:p>
Between 30 seconds to 1 minute<o:p></o:p>
Over 1 minute. <o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>
However I’m unsure of the correct formula to use... I’ve tried using =COUNTIF(C13:C93,">0:00:30") but it keeps coming up with 0? Is this to do with the time? <o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
Can anyone help? <o:p></o:p>

Regards
Jo

Try this...
=COUNTIF(C13:C93,">"&TIMEVALUE("00:00:30"))

Or
=COUNTIF(C13:C93,">"&TIME(0,0,30))

So you're trying to count times greater than 30 sec in your example?

I tried it with some times of my own and it seemed to work:

<TABLE style="WIDTH: 42pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=56 border=0 x:str><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 42pt" width=56><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 11.25pt" height=15><TD class=xl22 style="BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; WIDTH: 42pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; HEIGHT: 11.25pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" align=right width=56 height=15 x:num="1.1574074074074073E-5">00:00:01</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 11.25pt" height=15><TD class=xl22 style="BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; HEIGHT: 11.25pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" align=right height=15 x:num="2.8935185185185189E-4">00:00:25</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 11.25pt" height=15><TD class=xl22 style="BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; HEIGHT: 11.25pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" align=right height=15 x:num="6.8287037037037025E-4">00:00:59</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 11.25pt" height=15><TD class=xl22 style="BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; HEIGHT: 11.25pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" align=right height=15 x:num="3.1250000000000001E-4">00:00:27</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 11.25pt" height=15><TD class=xl22 style="BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; HEIGHT: 11.25pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" align=right height=15 x:num="3.8194444444444446E-4">00:00:33</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

Gave a result of 2 using =COUNTIF(A1:A5,">0:00:30")

I'd check your time values aren't stored as strings instead of numbers. (Do this quickly by setting alignment to general - the numbers format to the right)

Hmmm... Yes i've also just tried it again and it appears to work in a new sheet, but with the one i've set up, it still returns a 0 after changing the times to all sorts of different formats? Anything you can suggest?
