Calculate Sum between two TIMES (Not Dates)

Hi All,

I have an issue where I'm trying to find the SUM energy between two times, a departing time and an arrival time. However, when I try to sum using a filter I get nothing. I know the data is there because I can manually find it in the table.
For Context:
Table 1 has every minute marked, along with how much energy was used in that minute

Table 2 has a departing time and arrival time that I'd like to calculate between

The calculation I have tried:

EnergyUse =
CALCULATE(
SUM(Table1[Energy]),
FILTER(Table1, Table1[Time]>='Table2'[dep]),
FILTER( Table1, Table1[Time]<='Table2'[arr])
)
I have also tried this but with '&&' instead of two filters, but that didn't work either. 
Please Help!

Hi @Anonymous ,

Looks like you are creating a calculated column, try like this:

EnergyUse =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'Table1'[Energy] ),
    FILTER (
        ALL ( Table1 ),
        'Table1'[Time] >= MIN ( 'Table2'[dep] )
            && 'Table1'[Time] <= MIN ( 'Table2'[arr] )
    )
)

Time greater than or equal to departure 

and

Time lesser than or equal to arrival

 

This doesnt make sense , shouldnt the filter be

FILTER(Table1, Table1[Time]<='Table2'[dep]),
FILTER( Table1, Table1[Time]>='Table2'[arr])

Greater than or equal to is >= no?
So it's >= depart time and <= arrive time to get the times in between?
