Hello,
Could anyone recommend a formula for checking if the contents of each of the cells in a range contains a number, and if so, return the sum of those numbers?
Thanks

I should have been more clear. If the formula finds the contents of any cell in the range is NOT a number, I need the formula to return an "N/A".
Thx

Does this work for you (as an array)

=(ISTEXT(Range)=FALSE)*(SUM(Range))

Commit using SHIFT + CTRL + ENTER

Should see {=(ISTEXT....)}

Change range refs to A1:A10 or whatever range you need - would return 0 rather than error.

----------------------------

EDIT:

SORRY... this will work for you but will return DIV/0 as error rather than 0

=SUM(Range)/(ISTEXT(Range)=FALSE)

Again, commit as array

Are you not wanting to sum if any of them are blank or if any of them contain text?

If text, perhaps:

=IF(COUNTIF(A1:A10,"?*"),"N/A",SUM(A1:A10))

or if either, perhaps:

=IF(COUNT(A1:A10)=ROWS(A1:A10),SUM(A1:A10),"N/A")
