Thumbs up Answer: Keeping the total of filtered data

Hi there,

I understand that you are facing an issue with the totals row disappearing when you filter your data in Excel. This can be a common problem, but there are a few ways to solve it.

Solution 1: Use the SUBTOTAL function
  1. Select the cell where you want the total to appear.
  2. Type "
    " where "range" is the range of cells you want to include in the calculation.
  3. Press Enter.

The "9" in the formula tells Excel to use the SUM function, and the function will only include the visible cells in the calculation. This should allow the total to remain visible even when you filter the data.

Solution 2: Use a PivotTable
  1. Select your data range.
  2. Go to the "Insert" tab and click "PivotTable".
  3. In the "Create PivotTable" dialog box, select where you want to place the PivotTable and click "OK".
  4. In the "PivotTable Fields" pane, drag the column you want to summarize to the "Values" area.
  5. Excel will automatically create a total row at the bottom of the PivotTable that will remain visible even when you filter the data.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.
