### Excel Facts

Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().
your "Total in Vol" is correct in the 2nd table based on your figures.

What is the correct overall measurement you are trying to calculate? h x l x w

Also "Total ft Vol" for the 2nd table should be 343

I currently have a table of 196 line items and each one has different dimensions in inches.

But I thought as an example I was trying to use just 12 inches H x 12 inches L x 12" W to see if I could come up with the correct match between both methods.

So table 1 is saying 1008 ft in volume
Whereas table 2 using the same dimensions comes out to 49,392 ft in volume.

So I am still confused. I guess I am not sure what has
precedence.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>

That makes sense now, so both tables were correct in different ways, although this I think is what you're looking for.

Not sure how you got either of the cu ft results tho, table 1 should be 7, table 2 should be 343

Each row has a seperate h x l x w, which is than calculated to cu in and cu ft.

your table 2 was adding before multiplying, so instead of having 7 objects each measuring 12 x 12 x 12, you ended up with one oject measuring 84 x 84 x 84

Hope this helps

Ok excellant. Thank you so much. So doing this you can not calculate total inches in H,L and W for all the objects, and then calculate total volume? Is this the only way this can be done?

Again thanks so much. I was pulling my hair out here so frustrated. And I can't afford to be pulling any more hair out.

Jaime

That's right Jamie, trying to do it the way you were is practically impossible, it could work in theory, as long as you only had one variable dimension accross your entire range of objects to measure.

You could calculate total ft vol using total in vol / 1728, but that is all.

If you want to calculate the total volume, in cubic feet, with a single formula try

=SUMPRODUCT(A2:A9,B2:B9,C2:C9)/12^3

Yeah that works too. Right on. Thanks. I was looking for another way to calculate and now I have 2 ways. Thanks again. You all rock.

Not quite as concise as Barry's method showing the numerical conversion, this method using the Add-In Analysis ToolPak method. This let's you worry less about conversion factors.

=CONVERT(CONVERT(CONVERT(SUMPRODUCT(A2:A9,B2:B9,C2:C9),"in","ft"),"in","ft"),"in","ft")

Nice one Barry, I've spent so long using sumproduct for complex stuff that I forgot it could do something as simple as this

Jamie, this could also be used for your "total in vol" if you didn't want to do each individual row.

=SUMPRODUCT(A2:A9,B2:B9,C2:C9)

Barry's solution also made me think of another (pointless but it works)

ft vol
{=SUM(A2:A9*B2:B9*C2:C9)/12^3}
in vol
{=SUM(A2:A9*B2:B9*C2:C9)/12^3}

Enter as an array formula without {} and confirm with Ctrl + Shift + Enter instead of just Enter.

I'm sure Barry could come up with more solutions as well, but that gives you 3 options

edit: make that 4, another reply came after I last refreshed the page.

Kenneth, does that work with all versions of excel? I think it's 07 only but may be wrong.
