From: Vijay Dhawan Vijay on 18 Apr 2010 10:12 Hi, How can I sum the numbers in a column in Excel where some numbers carry a "<" sign in front of them (such as <1) and I want to include numbers such "<1" in calculation as "1". For Example if numbers are entered as follows 0.5 <1 0.5 I would like to value to be returned as "2" when I apply "sum" function. Thanks

From: T. Valko on 18 Apr 2010 10:28 Try this array formula** : =SUM(IF(LEFT(A2:A10)="<",--MID(A2:A10,2,10),A2:A10)) ** array formulas need to be entered using the key combination of CTRL,SHIFT,ENTER (not just ENTER). Hold down both the CTRL key and the SHIFT key then hit ENTER. -- Biff Microsoft Excel MVP "Vijay Dhawan" <Vijay Dhawan (a)discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in message news:C04C3714-9E12-460C-B81D-C40803BF6080 (a)microsoft.com...> Hi, > > How can I sum the numbers in a column in Excel where some numbers carry a > "<" sign in front of them (such as <1) and I want to include numbers such > "<1" in calculation as "1". > > For Example if numbers are entered as follows > > 0.5 > <1 > 0.5 > > I would like to value to be returned as "2" when I apply "sum" function. > > Thanks >
From: Sheeloo on 18 Apr 2010 10:29 Try the array formula (press CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER after typing/pasting the formula) =SUM(IF(LEFT(A1:A3,1)="<",MID(A1:A3,2,255)*1,A1:A3)) Adjust the range A1:A3 to the data you have. I have assumed that you have to check for < sign only.
