To create the formula using our sample list above, **type =SUMPRODUCT(C2:C5,D2:D5) and press Enter**. Each cell in column C is multiplied by its corresponding cell in the same row in column D, and the results are added up.

Here, you can apply the SUMPRODUCT function to solve it, please enter the following formula into a cell where you want to output the result:

- =SUMPRODUCT(B2:B9,C2:C9)
- =SUMPRODUCT($B$4:$B$12,$C$4:$C$12*($A$4:$A$12=E4))
- =SUMPRODUCT($C$4:$C$12*($A$4:$A$12=F4),$D$4:$D$12*($B$4:$B$12=G4))

Select the cells you want to multiply (C4:C7). Press Ctrl + Alt + V, then M, which is the shortcut for Paste Special > Multiply, and then press Enter.

For example, the formula "=SUM(A1:A10, C1:C10)" would sum the values in columns A and C. Another way to sum multiple columns in Excel is to use the AutoSum feature. This feature automatically detects the range of cells you want to sum and creates the formula for you.

Shortcuts Keys

- Multiply – Alt + V + H + M.
- Divide – Alt + V + H + I.
- Add – Alt + V + H + D.
- Subtract – Alt + V + H + S.

Navigate to the Home tab -> Editing group and click on the AutoSum button. You will see Excel automatically add the =SUM function and pick the range with your numbers. Just press Enter on your keyboard to see the column totaled in Excel.

In the formula bar, type in the SUM formula with "=SUM()," using your selected cells or range within the parentheses. For example, to sum one column of cells, you may use "=SUM(A2:A32)" or to sum two columns you may use "=SUM(A2:A32,B2:B32)." Press "Enter" to display your results in the selected cell.

Steps to Sum Multiple Rows in Excel

Select the cell where you want to display the total. Type "=SUM(" into the formula bar. Select the cells you want to add up, either by clicking and dragging or by holding down the shift key and selecting a range of cells. Close the parentheses and press enter.

To multiply a row of numbers and a column of numbers, the row and the column must have the same number of entries. For example, we can multiply a row of 3 numbers and a column of 3 numbers, but we cannot multiply a row of 3 numbers and a column of 2 numbers.

To sum columns or rows at the same time, use a formula of the form: =sum(A:B) or =sum(1:2). Remember that you can also use the keyboard shortcuts CTRL + SPACE to select an entire column or SHIFT + SPACE an entire row. Then, while holding down SHIFT, use the arrow keys to select multiple rows.

The SUM function adds values. You can add individual values, cell references or ranges or a mix of all three. For example: =SUM(A2:A10) Adds the values in cells A2:10.

Count how often a single value occurs by using the COUNTIF function. Use the COUNTIF function to count how many times a particular value appears in a range of cells.

Dragging the AutoFill handle is the most common way to apply the same formula to an entire column or row in Excel. Firstly type the formula of =(A1*3+8)/5 in Cell C1, and then drag the AutoFill Handle down to the bottom in Column C, then the formula of =(A1*3+8)/5 is applied in the whole Column C.

The most common reason for an Excel formula not calculating is that you have inadvertently activated the Show Formulas mode in a worksheet. To get the formula to display the calculated result, just turn off the Show Formulas mode by doing one of the following: Pressing the Ctrl + ` shortcut, or.

The most common reason for AutoSum not working in Excel is numbers formatted as text. At first sight, those values may look like normal numbers, but Excel regards them as text strings and does not include in calculations.

SUMIF Not Working Because of Uneven Data Format

Having numbers formatted as text is possibly well defined otherwise the numbers are not so easy to handle. Here you will see that the sum range has text values rather than numbers. As you know that text values can never be summed up, so the result we get will be 0.
