# Adding up total check boxes

Options
✭✭✭✭✭

Hello

I am trying to find a way sum up in the comment column row 1 the number of check boxes that were checked off in each row 3+3+2+4

So on each column i have the formula =COUNTIF([7/9/21 - Friday]2:[7/9/21 - Friday]24, 1) + "...etc"

This formula provides a count for column where a check box is checked off.

I would now like to add that row across to get a total number checked. What formula would you use?

A simple sum is not working 🤔

With the + "" a the end of the formula you are converting the results into a text value (which has to be done to get it to display properly in a checkbox column).

You are going to need to incorporate a VALUE function like so...

=SUM(VALUE([7/9/21 - Friday]@row), VALUE(7/9/21- Saturday]@row), VALUE(7/9/21- Sunday]@row), ..............................................)
