Microsoft Office Excel Ignoring Formulas

Attached is the Excel document that I need help with. I would like the sum of all numbers in columns I, J, K, and L to be displayed in the cells that I have labeled for their totals. I need each column to add from row 2 through row 1500 (ex. Cell N2 would contain the function =SUMI2:I1500). When I try to use that function it gives me an error. I believe it is because it's trying to add the formulas that I have entered in the boxes that do not contain numbers. However, I need it to add all the way through row 1500 because more orders will be added to this sheet. Does anyone know a way to add the numbers in row 2 through 15 for columns I, J, K and L while ignoring the formulas that I have entered in those columns?

The issue is not with the formula in N2 (=SUM(I2:I1500). The issue is with the formulas in rows I through L.

Hi submarinerssbn731,

Use this Formula for Cell N2
=SUM(IF(ISNUMBER(I2:I1500),I2:I1500))

Open in new window


Step 1 Copy past in Cell N2 it will appear like #NUM! don't worry.

Step 2 Click on Formula Bar which is located at upper part of excel next to sign fx

then press all this key together
"ctrl+shift+Enter"

Open in new window

you wil get your result.

Step 3 Copy past to next cells.


Thanks
