Hey guys.

 

Im sure the answer is simple, I cant for the life of me remebemr how to do it, even though I learnt years ago.

 

How can I add multiple cells without typing out every single cell? Example I want to add everything from A1-A10. Instead of going A1+A2+A3 etc, whats the easier/faster solution?

 

Thanks!

Use the SUM function:

Even just type the equal sign and then click/drag the set... It ""adds the "sum" for you by default now :)

To add multiple separate blocks, type equals and the n hold ctrl while clicking any seperated blocks needing adding (this works well for totals that aren't alligned)

Depending on your requirements, you might want to use the SUBTOTAL function. For example, =SUBTOTAL(109, A1:A10) will sum (that's the 9 in 109) the range A1:A10 excluding any manually hidden rows (that's the 100 in the 109). SUBTOTAL always excludes filtered rows.
