Hi,

pls try

``````Sub SumColL()

Set myRng = Range(Cells(1, 12), Cells(Rows.Count, 12).End(xlUp))
myRng.Offset(myRng.Rows.Count).Resize(1).Formula = "=SUM(" & myRng.Address(0, 0) & ")"
End Sub
``````

Is your formula in the same column as the data?

If not, just use the whole column:

=SUM(L:L)
0

If you want VBA then try this

``````Option Explicit

Sub SumL()
Dim rRng As Range

Set rRng = Range(Cells(1, 12), Cells(Rows.Count, 12).End(xlUp))

rRng.Offset(1).Formula = Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(rRng)
End Sub
``````

you can use the dynamic range inside the formula

like this

lets say your daya starts from A2 to the last cell that has data

use this formula =SUM(INDIRECT("A2:A"&MATCH(2,INDEX(1/(A:A<>""),))))

see atached.

Hi Roy Cox.

what your code is doing is changing every cell from L2 down to the same amount instead of adding them to come to a total

£118.16
£118.16
£118.16
£118.16
£118.16
£118.16
£118.16
£118.16

Because I need the total to be in the same column [in the first cell after the last item] I cannot use your formula

Try this amendment

``````Option Explicit

Sub SumL()
Dim rRng As Range

Set rRng = Range(Cells(1, 12), Cells(Rows.Count, 12).End(xlUp))
Cells(Rows.Count, 12).End(xlUp).Offset(1).Formula = Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(rRng)
End Sub
``````

in that case then Rgonzo's macro is best fit for you

Are you doing this update frequently?

If not, why use a macro at all?  Select L2 and press End and then Down arrow and down arrow again, then click on the Autosum button on the far right of the home ribbon, Sigma symbol. This will populate the cell with a sum of everything above. Press enter to confirm.

No VBA invoked so no worry about the Undo history being lost.

Thanks

Hi Rob,

Yes I am familiar with your proposal but as always with my requests they are part of a much bigger report that uses VBA to do lots of splitting, merging, formulas etc.
