## Average

I have the following three column are Date@Time, Time1 and Time2 in direct query. I created new column based on the Time1. The columns name is Hour.
I have two requirements:
1.  I want to create time differece in-between Time2 and Time1 in time format. (HH:MM:SS)
2.  I want to create average each line item based on the (point 1 result measure) time difference according to the date&time and Hour columns.

3. Grand Total of Time difference.

4. Grand Total of Measure.
Can you please suggest the solution for direct query menthod becuase those three columns are in DQ

Desired result look like.

@Greg_Deckler ,
The article is explained single time column but I want to get the time difference from Time2 and Time and how can I get the average.

Super User

@Saxon202202 Right, so you need to convert both of the times to seconds. You can then take the difference in seconds between the two and then convert back to duration format. If you post your data as text that I can copy I can be more specific and give you a full solution.

@Greg_Deckler ,
Thanks for your reply. Now, I convert the both times to seconds and finout the time difference in seconds. I try to convert the time difference measure into duration but result is 00:00:00.

Hi,

Try these 2 calculated column formulas

``Column = if('Table'[Time2]=BLANK(),BLANK(),'Table'[Time2]-'Table'[Time1])``
``Column 2 = CALCULATE(AVERAGE('Table'[Column]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Hour]=EARLIER('Table'[Hour])))``

Hope this helps.

@Ashish_Mathur, Thanks for your reply. I am looking for measures instead of calculated column because calculated column not supporting in direct query.

Thank you.
