    Formula to Divide '1' by individual values and return the SUM to a Cell

    G'day Folks

    I have many Workbooks where Sheet1! Col H have individual values on many rows.
    I want to divide 1 by each value individually and return the SUM of those new values to Sheet2! Cell H1.

    Sample Workbook attached.

    Thankum

    Okay, we are wearing it down now
    One more thing with it....
    Say I wanted to use a set range in the formula eg H2:H2000 but some of the cells in that range will be blank...can we make that work?

    Try:

    =SUM(IFERROR(1/Sheet1!H2:H2000,0))

    ...confirmed by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to activate the array, not just ENTER. You will know the array is active when you see curly braces { } appear around your formula. If you do not CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER you will get an error or a clearly incorrect answer.
