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/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. See screenshot:

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.
