I think the original formula sums every other row starting with the second cell in the range

Matt's last version also does that but the reason for the  ROW(Range)-MIN(ROW(Range)) type construction is that the formula will be more robust, in that it will still return the same value, even if you insert or delete rows above the referenced range.

To retain the original robust intent but add that criteria you can use this version:


Note I replaced AP10 with $AO$10 as that more closely resembles the ideal setup
