Chapter 3. Build the Budget Worksheet > Sum Some Values pp. 35–36

Sum Some Values pp. 3536

  • The SUM function is probably Excel's most used function. It can be used to add up any range of values.

  • Excel is not case-sensitive when evaluating functions. You can type SUM, sum, Sum, or even sUm when you write the formula and Excel will understand.

  • Excel 2004 for Mac OS includes a background error-checking feature that may mark cell B27 with a green error indicator. Activate the cell and click the button that appears to display a menu of error-checking options.

    Since this formula is not in error, choose Ignore Error to remove the error indicator.
