Excel/summation symbol in excel
Tom good morning! is there a way to choose say twelve different cells in a worksheet and use the summation tool to give their sum these twelve could be anywhere in a random manner
after picking up the last one, should you first select the cell where you want the result to be posted
thank you I have excel 2010
No - what you describe is not supported. If you just want to see the sum, without entering a sum formula in the cell, you should be able to see it in the lower right border of excel. But assuming you want a sum formula in a cell then
You could go to the cell (select the cell) where you want the sum and go to the formula bar. Type in
then use the mouse to select all the cells, then hit enter (excel will put in the closing parenthesis).
That would be about a close as you could get to what you describe unless you wanted to write a macro.
