Using minimum function on google sheets--data analytics


After selecting the values in column S & hitting enter, as described in the video, I get no value for my min tab in the summary sheet.

I notice that when the presenter selected the first value in column S, the border had some ribbon effect happening. I don't have that.

What am I doing wrong?

You have to change the entire Official Time column to the duration format. This is found where you see the icon with the 123, click on it and you should see 'duration' in the drop-down menu. Once you select duration for the entire column, your formulas should work.

same problem

I had this exact same problem and could not find an answer but changing both the summarys column b type to duration AND changing the 2017 column S to duration gave me the right answer for it :)

Nope, not working. In the 2017 S column you have this format 2:09:27 (even after changing to Duration) and in the Summary column you have this format: 0.00.00. Doesn't work together :(
