Summing a Column where contents are formula results



I have a column of numbers which are the results of a formula. I then want to add up the column of numbers but when I use a sum formula it just gives me a blank - can anyone assist?

    Are you sure the results are numbers? (Are they alligned to the right automatically?) What formula do you use? 

  • Hi - sum in column.....=IF(Emma1 = "A/L", "3.75", "0")

    Sum adding up results from column in one cell - =SUM([Emma by Hours]:[Emma by Hours])


    The column is formatted as text/ number......

    3.75 is a number

    "3.75" is text.


    Try changing your formula to


    =IF(Emma1 = "A/L", 3.75, 0)


    and see if that helps.
