    Hi,

    =SUM(SMALL(A1:H1,1),SMALL(A1:H1,2),SMALL(A1:H1,3),SMALL(A1:H1,4),SMALL(A1:H1,5))

    should do it.
    Rule 1: Never merge cells
    Rule 2: See rule 1

    Good afternoon Jessika

    Next time you post, please try and use a title that reflects what you're asking.

    In the meantime this formula should work for you.

    =SUM(SMALL(A1:A8,{1,2,3,4,5}))
    This is an array formula, so needs to be committed with Alt + Ctrl + Enter

    Hello Dominic,

    In fact, you don't need CSE for that formula. Typically you don't when using an array constant [{1,2,3,4,5}], although you would if that array were calculated, i.e. this does require CSE

    =SUM(SMALL(A1:A8,ROW(INDIRECT("1:5"))))
