Which formula should I use if I want to add up all values from a column?

To give a little bit of context, I am creating a report where I can count whether a cell has been filled with information. The column I am using is a drop down list with 5 values. Let's say these values are apples, bananas, oranges, pears, etc. I am not looking for the total of each specific value, I want all of the values added up with each other. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Not sure I follow!

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

    Best,
