Past Tip of the Day

Jenny asks "Is there a quick way of adding every other cell ?, I have a column of about 250 cells, and I have to select them manually using Ctrl. Can you help ?" Jenny, this is a matter of using a little math to remember how to determine if a number is even or is odd, and then translate that into the formula. The formula =A1+A3+A5+A7+A9 ... etc. =SUM((MOD(ROW(A1:A250)ROW(A1),2)=0)*(A1:A250)) Remember, this is a CSE Formula, to enter it you must press at the same time Control Shift Enter, instead of just Enter as regular formulas. You can also use this nonarray formula =SUMPRODUCT((MOD(ROW(A1:A250)ROW(A1),2)=0)*(A1:A250)) MrExcel.com provides examples of Visual Basic procedures for illustration only, without warranty either expressed or implied, including but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability and/or fitness for a particular purpose.
