excel – Sum of numeric and empty text values

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have a series of cells that either return a numeric value or IFERROR “”.

I am then looking to do a grand total of the cells i.e. A1+B1+C1, but where C1 has a value of "", how can I get a grand total of A1+B1 without returning #VALUE! ?

How to&Answers:

Use SUM, which excludes text values:

=SUM(A1:C1)

Answer:

Use built-in sum formula of excel. As it excludes the text fields and sums up only numeric values.

=SUM(A1:C1)
