Hi,

I have a long formula of adding cell addresses (i.e. sheetname:a1 + sheetname:a1, etc with sheetname being the name of the sheet) from about 40 sheets.  My problem is right now I  dont want to add some of the cells in the original formula.  Is there a way one can make Lotus ignore those cells I dont want withiin the formula?
 I dont want to delete these cells addresses in the forumula because I may use them again
in the future and its time consuming redo that. Basically, I want to insert a label within a formula.

Please Help

Test the contents of the cells you want to add up for the "datatype" using @cell(attribute;location) and if OK then use them, otherwise not. Thus:

@IF(@CELL("DATATYPE",C5..C5)="V",C5,"")

"datatype" "v" is a formula or numeric value. Have a look at the Help file in Lotus123 for allthe attributes you can test for using @cell(attribute;location).

Hope that helps
