I am trying to extract a number and add them in a range of cells if they are attached to a certain letter.

Ex: Cell B1=5C, Cell C1=3C, Cell D1=2B Looking to extract and add all cells with the letter C. In this case my total should be 8. Also, if the Cell only contains a C it should equal 8. If the last part isn't easily easily done, I can always make it 8C.

1 Answer 1


Does exactly what you asked, C alone is 8 and adds up only the C numbers. Per your example it only checks B1:D1 for C.

  • This work perfectly! Thank you!

  • Is there a way to add other letters to look for? For example, if I want to add anything with a letter C,P and F? Example: Cell B1=3C, Cell C1=6P, Cell D1=5F, Cell E1=4S; the whole thing should total 14.

  • @JoelMunoz what do these letters mean, maybe you should ask a new question about this, because your problem can be simplified or perhaps even more complicated than you think.

  • I'm trying to make a sick call sheet. For example C = Comp time, P = Personal Day, F = Family Reason. All these should be deducted out of sick leave with is (S) but I need to track them individually because each staff member is only allowed so many of each day.

  • @JoelMunoz What do the numbers mean? maybe it makes sense to do this in separate columns if it gets too complicated.
