How to sum only filtered or visible cells in Excel?
Maybe it is easy for you to sum a column of numbers in Excel, but sometimes you need to filter or hide some data to meet your criteria. After hiding or filtering, and now you just want to add up only the filtered or visible values. If you apply the Sum function in Excel, all the values including the hidden data will be added, in this case, how could you sum only the filtered or visible cell values in Excel?
When summing/counting filtered out cells in Excel, the SUM function or Count function will not ignore hidden cells. If hidden/filtered rows are removed, we can only sum or count visible cells easily. You can try Kutools for Excel’sDelete Hidden (Visible) Rows & Columns utility to solve it.
