    formula - trying to tally a row (i.e. SUM(D1:D8) while ignoring a < symbol

    looking to tally a number of rows in excel but most have a < symbol, looking for a formula that will tell excel to ignore it (i.e. something along the lines of =sum(d1:d8)substitute(D1:D8,"<","")) - thanks!

    Try

    if does not work: Please read the yellow banner at the top of the page. Or skip to extended version of it below:

    Will you please attach a SMALL sample Excel workbook(s) (10-20 rows of data is usually enough)? Please don't attach a picture of one (no-one will want to re-type all your stuff before starting).

    1. Make sure that your sample data are truly REPRESENTATIVE of your real data. (If there are typical cases like: all unique values/duplicates could occur, day/night, nobody present/several persons at once, before/on/past due, empty cells between data, mixed text/numbers, etc. - please show them all, or at least indicate in text). The use of unrepresentative data is very frustrating and can lead to long delays in reaching a solution.

    2. Make sure that your desired solution(s) is/are also shown (mock up the results manually).

    3. Make sure that all confidential/restricted information (either personal or business) like real e-mails, social security numbers, bank accounts, etc. is removed first!!

    To attach an Excel file you have to do the following (paperclip icon does not work!): Just before posting, scroll down and press Go Advanced button and then scroll down and press Manage Attachments link. Now follow the instructions at the top of that pop-up screen.
    Best Regards,

    Kaper

    =SUM(D1:D8) should ignore cells containing (only) < or > or any text
    If it does not work please post a sample sheet see yellow banner

    Re: formula - trying to tally a row (i.e. SUM(D1:D8) while ignoring a < symbol

    First: there are not < but <350 etc.
    Second: What would be expected result? (column AP value?)

    =SUM(A2:AO2) which is 58 is probably wrong

    may be =COUNT(A2:AO2) which is 1 and which better suits to what I understand as tally is right

    or see point 2. in my post above

    Re: formula - trying to tally a row (i.e. SUM(D1:D8) while ignoring a < symbol

    sorted it out: =SUMPRODUCT(--RIGHT(D8:AR8,LEN(SUBSTITUTE(D8:AR8,"<",""))))
