4 Quick Ways to Sum Multiple Rows in Excel

Summing up multiple rows is important for so many purposes.

1. Using SUM Function in Excel

The SUM function is used to add numerical values or numbers in a range of cells.

1.1. Sum Multiple Rows into a Single Cell

In the following example, there are some numbers of products that are in stock in January and February. Now, we want to calculate/ sum up the numbers of product rows in a single cell.

=SUM(C5:D7)

      Then to see the result, press Enter.
