Keeping sum up from forms coming in.

I am hoping someone would be able to help . As per the diagram below I have the first 7 rows which need to be fixed as they take data from the forms being entered.

I have set up the form to enter the sheet from the bottom of the sheet, my objective is to have row 7 be a sum up of all the forms that are entered .

However the form does not come in as a child to the parent row so cannot sum up that way , I also tried just doing a straight sum up formula, however when I bring in a form it comes in under my formula.

Is there a way for me to have the forms come in and a sum up of that has come in?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi @penny53731

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    • Add a so-called helper column, Autonumber. In my example, I've named it Autonumber.
    • Then set the number that the parent row is and sum/count all that is higher.
    =SUMIF(Autonumber:Autonumber, >7, [BiFlex 10L]:[BiFlex 10L])

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
