In Excel, you can Sum numbers with a single click, to create grand totals.
Instead of using the + operator, create a SUM function to avoid errors if some cells contain text.
Use the SUMIF or SUMIFS functions to sum cells based on single or multiple criteria. Also, you can combine the criteria with wildcard characters or operators, for more flexibility.
You can even Sum just the numbers that are visible in a filtered list.
