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
