Hello,
I have a spreadsheet that we use for planning out workflow and part of that is to indicate where to place what we call Nose, Middle, and Tail loads (we consider them double/triple loads). On the spreadsheet we designate these as N, M, and T. We also bracket these in parenthesis. At the bottom of each section, I count the total number of single loads that aren't one of these N/M/T loads in my head, but would like to insert a formula to count these for me. I've looked around at various formulae meant to do something similar and I can't adapt to my needs. This is what the data looks like:
What I do is add up the 1 and 6 in B10 and B11, then subtract that total from the value in B23 to get 11 in B22. The same method is used in C and D to get 6 and 9 respectively. So the formula would need to sum those numbers while ignoring the letters and parentheses symbols and be subtracted from the value in Row 23. Is this possible?
