Normally, we will calculate the subtotal of some rows with the SUM function, in this case, we can sum the list of numbers without the subtotals with following steps:
1. To get the subtotal of each group with the Sum function, see screenshot:
2. And then, sum the list values excluding the subtotals with this formula: =SUM(B2:B21)/2, enter this formula into a blank cell where you want to get the result, and then press Enter key to get the result you need.
Excepting apply the Sum function, you can also use the Subtotal function to get each group subtotals and grand total without subtotals. Please do as follows.
1. First, you need the SUBTOTAL function to get each group subtotals, please enter this formula: =SUBTOTAL(9,B2:B10), see screenshot:
2. After calculating each group subtotals, to get the grand total of the column without theses subtotals, enter this formula: =SUBTOTAL(9,B2:B21) into a cell you need, then press Enter key, and you will get the grand total which excludes the subtotals automatically.

- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 2 years agoWe have a spread sheet with a list of destinations that our customer pays extra for. We input the amount of jobs in in each column to give a total which moves the lines down automatically. Underneath these totals is another row giving us the averages of each column. However, the total amount of jobs is having an impact on the indirect formulae that provides us with an average. We want to exclude this row of information so it does not effect the average figures?
