Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

What is the formula result? is it 0?
try to clear the cell alignment format from the text/numbers
If values are automatically aligned LEFT this means they are still TEXT values. so you still have to turn them into NUMBERS to calculate
You can try to put the ranges in the sumproduct formula in a VALUE function like this:
Code:
=SUMPRODUCT(VALUE(B22:B28),VALUE(C22:C28))
If the conversion fails you will get an error #VALUE!Then you have to look into the number formatting and settings (spaces, commas, dots, etc.)

Hi

I don't understand what that means "format to numbers".

Sumproduct() doesn't care about formats.

Check if the values are number values.

Test one of the values that you think is a number value using the formula:

=ISNUMBER(A1)

(amend the address)

Do you get True?
