# Addition Problem - Red Numbers

##### Active Member
I have a set of numbers in cells A1:A25. All of them are entered manually. Some of them are in Red Fonts. In cell A26 I would like to get the SUM of RED Numbers ONLY.
How can I do it using formula ????

Thank you
John

### Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Are the red fonts a result of conditional formatting?

If not, have a look at,
