Here is my situation. I a familiar with SUMPRODUCT, but I need it the other way around. I want an easy way to add two columns first then multiply the sums.

I have a column of percentages, I want to add 1 to each of these (i.e. to go from 5% to 1.05) and then take the product of all of these to get the total return.

Any ideas?
 

Excel Facts

Remove leading & trailing spaces
Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().

Try this:

=PRODUCT(range+1)

where "range" is the range where you have the percentages

To enter this formula hit ctrl+shift+enter, not just "enter"

This is clearly a repost...

which you left behind you... unresolved.

Why don't you give an example with expected hand-calculated results?
