Hi,

I was wondering if anyone can help me, I would like to total up several figures which are in a cell and get the total on the C1 cell skipping B1 column, example:A1

15879

C1

30

Your help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

Lexy

Put this in C1: =SUM(LEFT(A1,1),MID(A1,2,1),MID(A1,3,1),MID(A1,4,1),RIGHT(A1,1))

Unfortunately, it's only going to work for a 5 digit string of numbers.

There is no built in Excel function to loop through a string of characters in a cell and SUM them.

If your string will be of varying lengths, you'll need to use VBA.

Hi, Thanks for your quick response, some numbers I need totals for are 6 digit string of numbers within a cell, how do I use the VBA code.

Thanks:)

This formula will work for 5 or 6 digits: =IF(LEN(A1)=5,SUM(LEFT(A1,1),MID(A1,2,1),MID(A1,3,1),MID(A1,4,1),RIGHT(A1,1)),SUM(LEFT(A1,1),MID(A1,2,1),MID(A1,3,1),MID(A1,4,1),MID(A1,5,1),RIGHT(A1,1)))

As written, it will give erroneous answer for string greater than 6 characters but that could be fixed if need be.
