    01:00.00
    01:14.00
    01:09.91
    01:03.00

    (In descending, ascendings or any order).
    Is there a formula that can calculate the difference of the fastest times (01:00.0)from the time which is second slowest (01:03.00), then from the third slowest (01:09.00), then from the fourth slowest (01:14.00). Which is then place in a seperate column

    well i would just sort them in descending order, then lets say the fastest time is in cell B2, other times descending beneath. In cell C3 i would put...

    =C2-$B$2

    and fill this equation down to the bottom of the list. Then copy and paste the equation results to values if you want to resort or play with the list.

    if, for example, your data times are in column a for 20 rows, starting at a2 and you want those differences in columns b,c,d etc, try the following in b2 and copy accross :

    =LARGE($A$2:$A$21,COLUMN(B$2))-MIN($A$2:$A$21)
