Hi Folks,

I have a question, is there a way (a formula) that i can put in a first cell of a named column and have the formula sum the entire column EXCEPT the first cell of that same named range? This formula "=sum(index("My Named Range",,11))" results in a circular error because its trying to add in the same cell as im trying to put in the formula. Any help would be great!!

Fyi, column number 11 in the my named range is what i need totalled.

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

In this example the range myRng is E3:J12 and the sum is for the last column (col 6).

Thanks Joe,

This unfortunately doesn't work for my scenario because i have figures in the cell directly below the end of my named range column. So when i offset it, it includes a row that isn't actually in "my named range". Do you know a trick to make this only sum the rows in the named range?

In this case the range E3:J12 is myRng and there's a row immediately below it (shaded green). The sum is confined to myRng and does not include the adjacent row.
