How to SUM only numbers in a range with Text?
Hey,
Thanks for trying. Some cells will be blank as we only enter a value when a client has been seen. F9  AD9 are the days of the month and I enter "T 4" only when the client is seen. Thanks! "jhyatt" wrote: you could do this the only problem i have come up with is if any of the cells f9:ad9 are blank it = an ERROR =C9MID(F9,3,6)MID(G9,3,6)MID(H9,3,6)MID(I9,3,6)MID(J9,3,6)MID(K9,3,6)MID(L9,3,6)MID(M9,3,6)MID(N9,3,6)MID(O9,3,6)MID(P9,3,6)MID(Q9,3,6)MID(R9,3,6)MID(S9,3,6)MID(T9,3,6)MID(U9,3,6)MID(V9,3,6)MID(V9,3,6)MID(X9,3,6)MID(Y9,3,6)MID(Z9,3,6)MID(AA9,3,6)MID(AB9,3,6)MID(AC9,3,6)MID(AD9,3,6) "Aundria123" wrote: Hello, Thank you for your reply. When I enter this, it just puts the letter t in front of my UNUSED UNITs #, i.e. t 41. But I need to be able to enter either t or e throughout the whole row. And I don't need the letter to be in the UNUSED UNITs column, only the number. I hope this makes sense. Thanks!

How to SUM only numbers in a range with Text?
Bernie,
I hope you wont give up! I liked your formula and so I wanted to add that when I click the "!" to see about the error, it looks to me that it gets to 46/VALUE and breaks. What does VALUE do? That seems to be the problem... When I do EVALUATE FORMULA, it underlines and italicizes (#VALUE!<"" Then I click EVALUATE again and it underlines/italicizes (IF( #VALUE!,VALUE(MID(F9:AD9,2,LEN(F9:AD9)))) I hit EVALUATE again (46#VALUE!)/2 I hit again ( #VALUE!)/2 I hit again #VALUE!/2 I hit it for the last time and I only can RESTART #VALUE!

Again, using CtrlShiftEnter:
=(C9SUM(IF(F9:AD9<"",VALUE(MID(F9:AD9,3,LEN(F9:AD9))) )))/2 Since you have a letter and a space, the text string is really two characters long, so I changed the ,2, to ,3, in the MID function. =(C9SUM(IF(F9:AD9<"",VALUE(MID(F9:AD9,3,1)))))/2 would also work, since you only have a 2 or a 4 in the cell (a number string one character long).

Hi Aundria,
Try this formula in AE9 =(C9(SUM(RIGHT(F9:AD9)*1)/2)) This is an array formula and must be committed with Ctrl+Shift+Enter and not just enter HTH Martin "Aundria123" wrote in message ...

Sorry, I should have said =RIGHT(F9), not =RIGHT(F9), as the latter
produces text, rather than a number. I apologise for causing you confusion.  David Biddulph "Aundria123" wrote in message ... David, I did what you suggested. I started with F42 to AD42, which corresponds with F9 to AD9. I have only numbers in my cell on the second page. I then put the below formula in AE9 (UNUSED UNITS column) but now the value is always the same as in C9 (TOTAL UNITS). It's like the formula is no long doing the SUM / 2 part. =(C9(SUM(F42:AD42))/2) What gives? Thanks! "David Biddulph" wrote: One option is to produce a set of helper columns, so from "T 2" in F9 you could extract the 2 by =RIGHT(F9), and copy across appropriately. Use the new columns in your SUM (and hide the new columns if you want to).  David Biddulph "Aundria123" wrote in message ... Hello, I'm a new user to excel and forumlas.

Sorry that doesn't handle blank cells, although it will work if
you put a zero in the blank cells. Can somebody else help out here?

Thanks Sandy,
That's cleared up the blanks issue very well. I am intrigued as to why you prefer the VALUE(MID approach to the RIGHT approach. VALUE(MID requires 3 characters in the input cells i.e Tspace4 RIGHT will handle Tspace 4, T4 or 4 or even a typo like Tspacespace4 Or am I missing something else again?

Hi Martin,
Bernie's formula will take care of double, (or more), digit numbers after the text ot letter and a space, your will only capture the final digit even if there are more.
