Total Cells with AutoSum
One of the most popular Excel functions is the AutoSum function. AutoSum automatically totals
the contents of cells. For example, you can quickly total a column of sales figures. One way to
use AutoSum is to select a cell and let the function guess which surrounding cells you want to total.
Alternatively, you can specify exactly which cells to sum.
In addition to using AutoSum to total cells, you can simply select a series of cells in your worksheet;
Excel displays the total of the cells’ contents in the status bar, along with the number of cells you
selected and an average of their values.
