Author: Sun Last Modified: 2020-07-23

For instance, you have a list of values, and there is a blank cell in the list to break the list into two parts, and you just want to sum the values until the blank cell appears in the list as below screenshot shown, and how can you quickly calculate it in Excel?

Sum column values until blank cell by formula

Here is a formula I can introduce for solving this problem in Excel.

Select a blank cell which you will place the calculated result into, type this formula, =SUM(A1:INDEX(A1:A100,MATCH(TRUE,(A1:A100=""),0))), press Shift + Ctrl + Enter keys to get the calculation correctly. See screenshot:
doc sum until next blank 2

In the formula, A1 is the first cell in the list you want to calculate, and A1: A100 is the list range you use, you can change them as you need.

The formula doesn't work for me. It gives me an error in the part (A1:A100=""), it tells me false in that step

im looking for the same answer, how to do this to count UP instead of down

You can try this formula =SUMPRODUCT(ISFORMULA(A1:A100)*A1:A100)

Great formula, thank you. Is it possible to change the formula, so that it will be counting upwards? Relating to the example, 902 will be the outcome in cell B10 (instead of B1)

Kind regards,
Tom
