Hi Guys,

Is there a formula that can add numbers separated by slashes in a cell? So for example I have 0/2/1/0/3, the desired result is 6.

Thanks
Asad

If you are ok using a custom function...

Code:
Function Eval(Ref As String)

Dim sbs As String

sbs = WorksheetFunction.Substitute(Ref, "/", "+")
Eval = Evaluate(sbs)

End Function

That's wonderful. That will be one option. But I prefer to do it with a formula. So I will wait for another guru to give another answer before I use this one.

I am thinking of changing that VB script to formula. Something like:
Code:
=SUM(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"/",","))
with ctrl+shift+enter
It gives an error.
But the solution must along the similar lines.

Try

=SUMPRODUCT(--MID(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"/",""),ROW(INDEX(A:A,1):INDEX(A:A,LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"/","")))),1))

This wouldn't work if there was a double digit number, will it? Like 0/11/2/0/3, the answer should be 16 but the formula gives 7.

In this case, an UDF would be, probably, the easiest approach:
Code:
Function SumNum(s As String) As Double
    SumNum = Evaluate(Replace(s, "/", "+"))
End Function

Use a Named range
Select cell B1
With Name Manager
New I used the name "Calc".
Refers to: =EVALUATE(SUBSTITUTE(!A1,"/","+"))

This obviously is equivalent to the UDF Eval.
