try =SUM(LARGE(A1:A50,{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18})). adjust cell refs to suit.

Hi Jonty,

WIth your data in A1:A25, try:

{ =SUM(LARGE(A1:A25,ROW(1:18))) }

This must be entered as an array formula with Ctrl+Shift+Enter rather than just Enter.

If array entered, Excel will place the braces {} around the formula you type.

You can also name a formula and place the above in the 'refers to' area. It does not have to be array entered if you use this method.

Regards,
Jay

5. Hi jonty

If you would like a more flexible solution just the the SUBTOTAL fumction on you data with Auto filters showing the top 18 (or whatever) This can be be found under Top Ten of the Auto filter.
