How to sum every n rows down in Excel?


Supposing you have a long list of data in your worksheet, and you need to sum every next 5 rows down like this: =SUM(B2:B6), =SUM(B7:B11) and so on, and then put the result in another column as following screenshot shown. In this article, I will talk about some good formulas for you to solve this problem.

In this example, I will sum every 5 rows of the data, please apply the following formula:

1. Enter this formula into a blank cell where you want to put the result: =SUM(OFFSET($B$2,(ROW()-ROW($B$2))*5,0,5,1))


Tip: In the above formula, B2 indicates the started row number you want to sum, and 5 stands for the incremental row numbers. If you want to sum every 10 rows in column B, you just need to change 5 to 10.

2. Then drag the fill handle over to the cells until 0 is displayed. And you will get the results you need. See screenshot:



1. Sometimes, you would like the results of every 5 rows’ total values displayed at the last line in column C as following screenshot shown:


In this case, please enter this formula: =IF(MOD(ROW(),5),"",SUM(OFFSET(B1,,,-5))) (B1 is the first cell value which you want to sum in column B, and 5 is the incremental row numbers) into cell C1, and then drag the fill handle to the cells that you want to apply this formula.

Tip: the above formula can be applied successfully if your data begins at the first cell.

2. If you have a list of values in a row, you can also use a formula to sum every n columns, =SUM(OFFSET($A$1,,(COLUMNS($A$3:A3)-1)*5,,5)) (A1 is the cell reference which your first value located, A3 stands for the cell where you put this formula in, and 5 is the incremental column numbers ), and then drag the fill handle over to the right cells until 0 is displayed, see screenshots:
