    Adding a list of numbers, dropping the lowest number first.

    I have a column with 4 randomly generated numbers. What I want to do is take the numbers, drop the lowest of the four and add the other 3 together.
    Is there a VBS are a fx formula that anyone knows that can help me on this.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi and welcome to the forum

    If your data is in A1:A4, try this...
    =SUM(A1:A4)-SMALL(A1:A4,1)
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you
