    Sum column with text

    I have a column where some cells have numbers and some have text, specifically N/A. I just want to sum only the numbers on that column. I think this should be pretty easy. But I have tried different formulas and none of them seems to work. Any help will be highly appreciated.

    If your numbers are in A1 to A15 then enter this formula using Ctrl Shift Enter

    =SUM(IF(ISNUMBER(A1:A15),A1:A15,0))

    Re: Sum column with text

    Hi

    In my Excel2010, using =SUM(A1:A15) ignores all text values in the range and just gives the numeric total.
    It's only if there are error values within that range (like #N/A) that gives an error for the SUM (i.e text value of N/A is ignored, but #N/A is not)
