# Excel AutoSum

Posted on 2013-01-16

Hello,
I have a workBook with multiple sheets (varies) ,
I'm trying to Auto Sum Columns (M,N,P,Q), Starting Raw M2,N2,P2,Q2.
And the summary be at the end of the columns (M,N,P,Q).

Do the same on all sheets.
The number of Raws varies.

I wonder if there is a vb code that can do this.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi, Wass_QA.

Please see attached. If the code finds that the last used cell in column M is simply the total for that column then it assumes that this sheet has already be done and so it skips it. Sheet1 is like this.

The code is...
``````Option Explicit

Sub Auto_Total()
Dim xSheet    As Worksheet
Dim xLast_row As Long
Dim xCol      As Variant

For Each xSheet In ThisWorkbook.Sheets
If xSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count < 0 Then Debug.Print "?!"
xLast_row = xSheet.[A1].SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row
If xSheet.Range("M" & xLast_row).Formula = "=SUM(M2:M" & xLast_row - 1 & ")" Then
MsgBox ("Total found for """ & xSheet.Name & """ - sheet bypassed.")
Else
For Each xCol In Array("M", "N", "P", "Q")
xSheet.Range(xCol & xLast_row + 1).Formula = Replace("=SUM(|2:|" & xLast_row & ")", "|", xCol)
Next
End If
Next

End Sub
``````

Nope - please see my first post! Would you like something different?

Thanks,

Wass_QA,

This was explained in my first post! What do you want me to do when the macro finds that there are already totals on the last line? If I simply create a new set of totals then they'll be completely wrong - giving double the correct answer!

Instead of doing something that I know is wrong, I bypass the sheet. Again, what would you prefer me to do?

(BTW, the version above copes badly with a sheet with no data. I have a new version to handle this but I'll wait for your answer to this post before sending it.)

Thanks,
Brian.

ok, sorry,
I figured it out,
The Total was coming up way down the column.
I had some characters I didnt delete.

thank you very much.

Wass_QA,

The attached handles sheets with no data. The code is...
``````Option Explicit

Sub Auto_Total()
Dim xSheet    As Worksheet
Dim xLast_row As Long
Dim xCol      As Variant

For Each xSheet In ThisWorkbook.Sheets
If xSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count < 0 Then Debug.Print "?!"
xLast_row = xSheet.[A1].SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row
If xLast_row < 2 Then
MsgBox ("No data in """ & xSheet.Name & """ - sheet bypassed.")
Else
If xSheet.Range("M" & xLast_row).Formula = "=SUM(M2:M" & xLast_row - 1 & ")" Then
MsgBox ("Total found for """ & xSheet.Name & """ - sheet bypassed.")
Else
For Each xCol In Array("M", "N", "P", "Q")
xSheet.Range(xCol & xLast_row + 1).Formula = Replace("=SUM(|2:|" & xLast_row & ")", "|", xCol)
Next
End If
End If
Next

End Sub
``````

Thanks, Wass_QA, but please be sure to use the version in my last post!

As I may have mentioned to you before, I keep an eye on "my" closed questions for at least a couple of weeks, so if you have any further issues with this code please feel free to post here.

Regards,
Brian.
