Mastering Excel Sum & Count Formulas Summing and counting values are the most common spreadsheet operations, and Excel's capabilities go far beyond routine SUM and COUNT formulas. Author Tim Hill shows you how to use worksheet functions, array formulas, AutoSum, and other Excel features to summarize an entire range of values, or only values that meet specific conditions. If you're using an older version of Excel that doesn't support the latest worksheet functions, you'll find equivalent formulas that work in Excel 2003 or earlier.
