How to sum a column in Google Sheets
Are you a Google Sheets user struggling to find the right formula for the sum of a column of numbers? You’re not alone!
While Google Sheets is an extremely powerful spreadsheet tool, it gets tricky to remember all the formulas and functions that can make your life easier. And you might find yourself wondering how you’d sum a column of numbers.
Fortunately, there is an easier way. FormulaGenerator is an app designed specifically for spreadsheet power users who struggle with formulas and functions. Our AI makes it easy to quickly generate formulas for any task, including adding up a column.
To sum a column of numbers in Google Sheets:
Well the formula itself is quite simple. It’s:
=SUM(Starting cell: Ending cell)
But there’s another way you can find such answers the next time you have a doubt. Simply open up the FormulaGenerator app and type out your request under our Generate Formula feature.
Taking this very example, if you wanted to sum the column of numbers from cell A1 to A10, you would type “sum column A from A1 to A10” into the FormulaGenerator app.
And it would give you the result =SUM(A1:A10), but in a fraction of the time it takes to browse the web.
So you type in your question in simple English and the app generates a formula for you that will automatically calculate the sum of the values in the column.
Formula Generator also generates code for you, so if you want to automate the process further, you can generate App Script or VBA code from the same text description. This means that you can automate finding the sum of a column of numbers in the future, so you don’t have to manually enter the formula each time.
In short, if you’re looking for an easier way to add a column of numbers in Google Sheets (or literally any other formula), FormulaGenerator is the perfect solution.
And with our Google Sheets Add-On, you can use Formula Generator directly in Google Sheets. So the next time you need to sum a column of numbers in Google Sheets, don’t waste time trying to remember the formula – use FormulaGenerator and get the job done quickly and easily. It’s FREE!
