## How to sum all digits in a number in Excel?

If you have a cell which contains a value, and now, you want to add all the digits together of the cell. For example, if you have the value 12345 in a cell, you want to do this calculation: 1+2+3+4+5, and get the value 15. Are there any good ways for you to sum all digits of a number in Excel? #### Sum all digits of a number in a cell with formulas

Without adding the digits one by one manually, the following formulas can help you get the summation of a cell quickly.

1. Please enter or copy any one of the following formulas into a blank cell to output the result:

=SUMPRODUCT(1*MID(A2,ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(A2))),1))
=SUM(INDEX(1*(MID(A2,ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(A2))),1)),,))

2. Then press Enter key to return the result, and select the cell C2, then drag the fill handle over to the range that you want to apply this formula, and you will get the summation of digits of each cell number.See screenshot: Notes:

• In the above formulas, A2 is the cell contains the number which you want to sum its digits.
• If there is negative sign or a decimal point in the number, the formulas return a #VALUE! error.

#### Sum all digits of a number in a cell with User Defined Function

To add up all digits of a cell number, the following VBA code also can help you.

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.

VBA code: Sum all digits of a cell number

``` Function SumDigits(Number As String) As Integer
'Updateby Extendoffice
Dim x As Integer, C As String
For x = 1 To Len(Number)
C = Mid(Number, x, 1)
If IsNumeric(C) Then SumDigits = SumDigits + C
Next
End Function
```

3. Then save and close this code, return to the worksheet, and enter this formula =SumDigits(A2) into a blank cell, Then drag the fill handle down to the cells that you want to contain this formula, you will get the following result: #### Sum all digits of a number in a cell with easy feature

Hello, john,
To calculate the average of multiple numbers within a cell, please apply the below formula:
=IF(A1="","",ROUND(SUMPRODUCT(--(0&TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(A1,",",REPT(" ",99)),ROW(\$1:\$99)*99-98,99))))/(LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1,",",))+1),2))
Note: the last number 2 in the formula indicates that retain two decimal places after rounding. You can change it to your need.

Before i ask i apologize about some rude and hard -to-understand expressions which could be in follow sentences caused by my poor English skill in advance.

I could use this functions and solve the problem though, I actually couldn't get how the function work.

This is the function :
=SUM(1*MID(A2,ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(A2))),1))

I know functions "SUM", "MID", "ROW", and "INDIRECT", but I have no idea about expressions "1*MID" and ""1:"&" at all.

Can someone give me any answer or clue which can make me understand?

Hi, Shriyan,
To multiply all numbers within a cell, you can apply the following user defined function:

Function MultiplyDigits(ByVal Number As Long) As Long
'Update 20140905
MultiplyDigits = 1
Do While Number >= 1
MultiplyDigits = MultiplyDigits * (Number Mod 10)
Number = Int(Number / 10)
Loop
End Function

And then apply this formula: =MultiplyDigits(A2)

I'm trying to figure out a formula using arrays to add/subtract a number from each digit in a cell. Example: If A1 contains 7721, then I'd like B1 to contain 2278 (subtracting 9 from each digit in A1). I have tried and tried to figure this out without success. Thank you!

Hi, Rehan,
To sum all digits in decimal number, the following code may help you.

Function SumDigits(Number As String) As Integer
Dim x As Integer, C As String
For x = 1 To Len(Number)
C = Mid(Number, x, 1)
If IsNumeric(C) Then SumDigits = SumDigits + C
Next
End Function

And then apply this formula: =SumDigits(A1).
