Let’s say you have data in a worksheet in various ranges, and you want sum up each range at the bottom.

Something like this:

autosum-multiple-ranges

quick-autosumHow to do all this one shot?

Simple. We use multi-select & ALT=

  1. Select all the cells where you need autosum, one at a time using CTRL+Click
  2. Press ALT=
  3. Done!

Note: We discussed a similar problem almost 2.5 years ago here – Sporadic totals in Excel.
