SUM only numbers in a cell that also contains text.


New Member
Hi, I'm sure this will be fairly straightforward for someone here...

I have a group of cells that I want adding together, they are cells G65, K65, O65 and S65.

Each one of these cells contains both text and numbers and I only want to add the number part of the cell. They all contain the same formatting, they say the word Achieved, have one space and then the number value.

I have looked at using SUMIF and ISNUMBER but all to no avail.

I would be very grateful if someone can point me in the right direction!

Thank you

As the cells are all going to be formatted the same, you can try something like the below:

=SUM(RIGHT(G65,LEN(G65)-SEARCH(" ",G65)),RIGHT(K65,LEN(K65)-SEARCH(" ",K65)), RIGHT(O65,LEN(O65)-SEARCH(" ",O65)), RIGHT(S65,LEN(S65)-SEARCH(" ",S65)))

=SUM(SUBSTITUTE(G65, "Achieved", ""), SUBSTITUTE(K65, "Achieved", ""), SUBSTITUTE(O65, "Achieved", ""), SUBSTITUTE(S65, "Achieved", ""))

Thank you! Th efforts option definitely works. Will try the second suggestion too as that appears to be more straightforward to understand what is going on.

Happy it works for you.

The first option is just looking to the right of the space of each cell since you have a space before each number and the second option is just replacing the "Achieved" with nothing which leaves just the number.

Added the second option since i thought it looks a lot easier to change if needed.
