I've used Array Formula to calculate the total price for an order and I have a manual column next to it to note what has been paid. When I come to do a comparison of the two though, Google sheets appears unable to SUM the column created by Array Formula but has no problem with the manually created ones.

Is there a way around this?

I've made a dummy sheet illustrating the issue here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XZr3Kj2jq2jxjhU6nCfthdu9TBdxJKzdYW0uMpwOO7w/edit?usp=sharing

  • to get rid of those zeros, try: =ARRAYFORMULA(IF((LEN(A1:A)+LEN(B1:B)),IF(ROW(P:P)=1,"Cost",FIXED(A:A+B:B,2)),)) - i.sstatic.net/uKqVd.png
