Sum Values in a Range While Ignoring #N/A
- 0 Comments
Excel provides an easy way to sum a range of cells based on a given criteria. There are many ways this can be used but the example we are going to look at today is summing a range while ignoring #N/A’s in the same range. Without ignoring #N/A, the result of the sum will be #N/A itself. Let’s take a look at how we can use Sumif to make this work.
For this example, let’s take a range that has both #N/A values and numeric values. Using the following formula, we can exclude all #N/A’s from being included in the sum:
This formula will sum all values in the first column between rows 1-10 that does not contain #N/A. There are many other instances where the sumif formula can be used that makes summing large ranges possible. We will explore these as well as the CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER formulas, that provide even more functionality.
