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:

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

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.

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

Sum exclude strikethrough cells in Excel

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:

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