You're welcome!

Excel accepts it for compatibility but it has no effect one way or another. Try entering this formula in Excel in cell B1: +SUM(A1:A10) Excel will simply add the equal sign to the formula: =+SUM(A1:A10)  Biff Microsoft Excel MVP "FJ" wrote in message ... Hi, I have a question: I was given a spreadsheet to work on and all the SUM formulas have the following format: =+SUM(A1:A10). I have never seen this before. Does the + sign before SUM mean anything and if so, what? It doesn't seem to make a difference when it is removed. Sorry if this is a really basic question. I have just never seen this before and I am curious. Thanks in advance for any information. .

=+SUM
"+" sign is near to numeric pad and that's why often used instead of "="
If you would insert a formula like: +sum(1,1) it would automatically convert to: =+sum(1,1)  Thanx & Best Regards, Faraz!
