Hi Experts,

I have an Excel 2010 worksheet which calculates the total expected annual rates of pay for  contractors.

Against the name of a contractor is :

a) a daily rate of pay in £
b) month columns from Jan to Dec with either a value of 1 (contractor expected to work) or 0 (contractor expected not to work)
c) the average number of days per month (ANDM) a contractor is expected to work - 21.7 in this case.
d) the total amount of pay expected to be earned by the contractor for the whole year, calculated by multiplying each month (which has a value of 1) by the ANDM multiplied by the daily rate of pay.

I'm struggling to come up with a solution for item d).

I guess the answer is an array formula but I'm not sure how to accumulate the monthly amounts based on whether they are expected to work.

I've attached an example file.

Thanks
