I'd like to create a formula in cell (E1) that will sum all cells that qualify a conditional formatting rule.

For Example: If the conditional formatting rule says A1>=$D$1 (than fill green). This would apply to all cells in column A. In this example cell E1 will show 52% (21%+31%).(unfortunately this page won't let me fill in cells)

What I'm trying to have in cell E1 is the sum of all qualifying cell (green cell) from column A.

As I chose to change the percentage in cell D1, E1 may also change as cells in column A may loss or gain qualifiers. For example if I change D1 from 20% to 10% than cell E1 will change from 52% to 78% (21%+14%+31%+12%).

How can I formulate E1 to sum all color filled cells in column A?

I know I can accomplish what I want in cell E1 by going column B1 and input =if(A1>=$D$1,A1,"") and drag the formula down the column and then going to E1 and input = sum(B1:B5). However I want to have E1 calculated by the qualifiers in the conditional format.

Why are you insisting on using the conditional formatting?


I would forget the conditional formatting and use:

Code:
=SUMIF(B2:B6, ">=" &E2)

Thank you, the Sumif formula works beautifully
