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

1. Please enter this formula =SUMPRODUCT(1*MID(A2,ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(A2))),1))(A2 contains the number which you want to sum its digits, you can change it to your need) into a blank cell beside your data, in this example, I will enter it in cell B2. See screenshot:

doc-sum-digits-1

2. Then press Enter key to return the result, and select the cell B2, 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.

Notes:

1. Except the above formula, you can also use an array formula: =SUM(1*MID(A2,ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(A2))),1)), and remember to press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys together to get the correct result.

2. These formulas work fine if the number is a positive whole number. If there is negative sign or a decimal point in the number, the formulas return a #VALUE! error.


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

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

doc-sum-digits-1

4. Then drag the fill handle down to the cells that you want to contain this formula, you will get the following result.

doc-sum-digits-1

Notes:

1. If the digit of your number longer or equal 11, you will get an error value.

2. If the number contain negative sign, the result will be zero; if the number contain decimal point, the result will be wrong.

      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.

      Please try it, hope it can help you!

    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.

    Thanks. It was helpful.
    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)

      Please try it, hope it can help you!

    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!

        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).

        Please try this.
