In this article we will learn about how we can sum the value to a specified range by indirect cell references in Excel.
To sum values in a range specified by indirect cell references in Excel, we will use a combination of SUM & INDIRECT functions to get the output.
SUM: Adds all the numbers in a range of cells
There can be maximum 255 arguments.Refer below shown screenshot:
INDIRECT: Returns the reference specified by a text string.
Example: If value in cell A1 contains 10, B1 contains A1 & we use INDIRECT function in cell C1=INDIRECT(B1), then result would be 10
Let us take an example:-
Column A contains numbers.Column B contains specified range of cell references that need to be totaled.Cell B1 is the starting range & B2 is the ending range.
The above shown formula will add the sum of values as specified in column B. If we change the value in cell B2 from 3 to 4 then the formula will calculate the result accordingly.
