One method is to create a Named Range and then sum the Named Range.

Typically I would suggest this:

Create a Named range as follows:

Select the cells you want to work with.

With the cells selected, click in the white box just above Column A.

Enter a Name, such as MySumCells, and press Enter. Do not just click out
of the box because the name will not be saved. You must press enter.

Then use =SUM(MySumCells)

However, with as many noncontiguous cells as you are trying to SUM, I believe you will run into a limit on how many cells you can use in a Named Range. (I believe it's actually a limit on the number of characters in a Named Range vs. the number of cells.)

You may need to create numerous Named Ranges (MySumCells1, MySumCells2, etc) and then sum them:

=SUM(MySumCells1, MySumCells2, MySumCells3, MySumCells4)

Tell me: Is it true that you are summing every fourth cell in column MQ? If so, a User Defined Function written in VBA might be a better solution.

That's correct, every new client I add on I need to add every fouth cell in the column MQ. How would you write up in VBA? Thanks

Use Alt F11 to open the VBA editor.

Click Insert...Module

Paste this code into the pane that opens:

Function SumBy4(ByVal arg1, arg2) As Integer
  For myCells = arg1 To arg2 Step 4
   tempSum = tempSum + Range("MQ" & myCells)
 SumBy4 = tempSum
End Function

In any cell in Excel enter:

=SumBy4(arg1, arg2)

Where Arg1 is the first row of your range (e.g. 4) and arg2 is the last cell (e.g. 1060)
