Deriving MODE from time


Board Regular
Aug 16, 2016
Hello -

I am trying to derive the MODE of a sequence of times. I have the following format to convert:

12:00:00 EDT

I imagine it does need to be converted Into text or number format so as to derive the MODE of this sequence. I have tried several approaches to no avail.

I also wish to derive the MODE of the day of the week, as well. I have converted the actual date into day of week with a custom format of, "ddd," and would like to derive the MODE of this (separate) sequence too.

Is there anyone with any ideas on how to proceed on either of these please?

Thanks much to you all —

Re: Deriving MODE from time help, please

@aiki100, it's hard to know what to suggest without seeing real data in context with sample desired result. But let's say your data (for either situation) was in A1:A20. You could try the following array formula (confirmed with Ctrl+Shift+Enter):

Adjust the five instances of the range in the formula to match your own data range.

Again, this only a guess based on what information was provided in your post. If it doesn't work, do try posting actual sample ranges with desired sample output.
