Is there some variation of the >'Mean' command or other that would do this? Once you have read your data into Mathematica it is very simple to do what you want. Assume, the variable myData contains the data, then Mean[myData[[18000;;67500]]] will do what you want. Note, this assumes the data is in a 1-D list. If this is not the case or you need hints on how to read the data into Mathematica, post some details of the format of the text file.
