How to count / sum strikethrough cells in Excel?

In Excel, we always format strikethrough for some cells which indicate the cell values are useless or invalid, so that we can analyze the data more accurately. In this article, I will talk about how to do some calculations in the range with these strikethrough cells in Excel.

If you want to know how many cells with strikethrough format in a range, you can create a User Defined Function, please do as following steps:

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

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

VBA code: Count strikethrough cells

Public Function CountStrike(pWorkRng As Range) As Long
'Update 20140819
Application.Volatile
Dim pRng As Range
Dim xOut As Long
xOut = 0
For Each pRng In pWorkRng
    If pRng.Font.Strikethrough Then
        xOut = xOut + 1
    End If
Next
CountStrike = xOut
End Function

3. Then save and close this code, and return to the worksheet, and then enter this formula =CountStrike(A2:B14) to a blank cell, see screenshot:

doc-count-strike-1

4. Then press Enter key, and all the strikethrough cells have been counted. See screenshot:

doc-count-strike-1

But, sometimes, you may like to count the number of only the normal cells which excluding the strikethrough cells. The following code can help you.

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

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

VBA code: Count without strikethrough cells

Public Function CountNoStrike(pWorkRng As Range) As Long
'Update 20140819
Application.Volatile
Dim pRng As Range
Dim xOut As Long
xOut = 0
For Each pRng In pWorkRng
    If Not pRng.Font.Strikethrough Then
        xOut = xOut + 1
    End If
Next
CountNoStrike = xOut
End Function

3. Then save and close this code, go back to your worksheet, type this formula =countnostrike(A2:B14) into a blank cell, and press Enter key, then you will get the result you need.

doc-count-strike-1

Note: In above formulas, A2:B14 is the range you want to apply the formulas.

Because the strikethrough cells are unused, here, I want to sum only the normal numbers without the strikethrough numbers. To solve this task, you also need a User Defined Function.

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

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

VBA code: Sum exclude strikethrough cells

Public Function ExcStrike(pWorkRng As Range) As Long
'Update 20140819
Application.Volatile
Dim pRng As Range
Dim xOut As Long
xOut = 0
For Each pRng In pWorkRng
    If Not pRng.Font.Strikethrough Then
        xOut = xOut + pRng.Value
    End If
Next
ExcStrike = xOut
End Function

3. Then save and close this code, go back to your worksheet, type this formula =excstrike(B2:B14) into a blank cell, and press Enter key, and you will get the summation of all the numbers without the strikethrough cells. See screenshot:

doc-count-strike-1

Note: In above formulas, B2:B14 is the range you want to sum cells without strikethrough format in.

    Hi. Great code for ignoring strikethrough text whilst summing. But, is it possible to filter the data and get a subtotal which still sums without the strike through text? Thanks

    This seems to round to whole numbers, and does not take into account the decimal places. For example, 1.35 + 1.00 would equal 2 instead of 2.35, but 1.50 + 1 would equal 3 instead of 2.50. How can you fix the code to add accurately?

      ARI, just change the two words "Long" to "Double" in the formula. Here is the same formula above, with the correct Data Types to allow for values with decimal points:

      [b]
      Public Function ExcStrike(pWorkRng As Range) As Double
      'Update 20161107_IITCSglobal.com
      Application.Volatile
      Dim pRng As Range
      Dim xOut As Double
      xOut = 0
      For Each pRng In pWorkRng
      If Not pRng.Font.Strikethrough Then
      xOut = xOut + pRng.Value
      End If
      Next
      ExcStrike = xOut
      End Function
      [/b]
