Hi,

You could create a Table by selecting your range and Insert / Tables / Table

and the use  formula

=SUM(Table1[A],Table1[b],Table1[c])

Open in new window

You can use the following array formulas
Entered using [ctrl]+[shift]+[enter]...

=SUM($D$5:$I$8,N(D4:I4<>"*rem"))
=SUM($D$5:$I$8,N(D4:I4="*rem"))

See attached

@JimJam

You do not show the total sum of hours but only the rest of division by day 6: 00 instead of 30:00

You have not changed the format like I did [hh]:mm ;-)

@Rgonzo1971

by all means, your number is also correct. sorry did not see the format ;-)  but you can agree with me that sum product is dynamic, if you change the title of the header by either adding *rem or otherway around removing the rem, then your table sum is not updated, whereas the sumproduct catches that one :-)

anyways, you are the genius
