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?

Sum only filtered or visible cell values with formula

Sum only filtered or visible cell values with User Defined Function

Sum/Count/Average only filtered or visible cells with Kutools for Excel

Sum/Count/Average visible cells only in a specified range with ignoring hidden or filtered cells/rows/columns

The normally SUM/Count/Average function will count all cells in the specified range on matter cells are hidden/filtered or not. While the Subtotal function can only sum/count/average with ignoring hidden rows. However, Kutools for Excel SUMVISIBLE / COUNTVISIBLE / AVERAGEVISIBLE functions will easily calculate the specified range with ignoring any hidden cells, rows, or columns.

With this SUBTOTAL function which ignores rows that have been excluded by a filter, you can easily add up only the visible cells. You can do as this:

Supposing you have a range of data, and they have been filtered as you need, see screenshot:

1. In a blank cell, C13 for example, enter this formula: =Subtotal(109,C2:C12) (109 indicates when you sum the numbers, the hidden values will be ignored; C2:C12 is the range you will sum ignoring filtered rows.), and press the Enter key.

Note: This formula also can help you sum only the visible cells if there are hidden rows in your worksheet. However, this formula can't sum with ignoring cells in hidden columns.

If you are interested in the following code, it also can help you to sum only the visible cells.

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys, and it opens the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module window.

Function SumVisible(WorkRng As Range) As Double
'Update 20130907
Dim rng As Range
Dim total As Double
For Each rng In WorkRng
    If rng.Rows.Hidden = False And rng.Columns.Hidden = False Then
        total = total + rng.Value
    End If
Next
SumVisible = total
End Function

3. Save this code and enter the formula =SumVisible(C2:C12) into a blank cell. See screenshot:

4. Then press Enter key and you will get the result that you want.

        100 10

        90 10

        80 10



        where 90=100-10, 80=90-10, and so on.........

        When i am applying say G3-K2 Formula in filtered excel sheet & dragging the formula, it includes hidden cells

        for example



        Validity Lifting Qty
        27054.59 123.41
        26931.18 330.98
        26600.20 493.66
        26106.54 476.38
        25630.16 480.64
        25149.52 577.06


        now value in validity comes after get subtracted by lifted qty (like 2nd value 26931.18=27054.59-123.41)

        3rd value in validity=2nd value in validity-2nd value in lifted qty. and so on.....

        now this sheet is filtered & when i drag the formulae in validity column, it includes hidden cells, due to filter.

        which gives me wrong result

          Hi,
          The normal =G3-K2 will not ignore any hidden cells/rows/column by dragging to copy. I am sorry I can not figure out a proper formula for your. All formulas or methods talked in this article is just about sum/count/average ignoring hidden cells.

    Im trying to use the AVERAGEVISIBLE function to average the 12 largest values in a column, this works in the normal AVERAGE function as

    =AVERAGE(LARGE(E971:E1540,{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12})) however when i try to use the average visible function it returns #VALUE!, any ideas?

    Sorry I messed up the posts security code at bottom and seems like my question may have been deleted as it asked me to try another one.

    I can get the VBA code for SUMVISIBLE to work well if my data is vertical and I hide rows. However it doesn't if my data runs horizontal and I want to hide columns. Is there a way to program this? Thanks!
