Join Dennis Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Using and extending AutoSum button capabilities, part of Excel 2011 for the Mac: Advanced Formulas and Functions.
- One of Excel's most valuable computational tools…is the auto sum button.…You'll find it twice in the menu system.…It's in the standard toolbar roughly halfway across…it's the Greek letter sigma.…Notice a little drop arrow to the right of it,…include some other functions as well as sum.…You'll also find this on the Formula's tab on the ribbon,…off to the left and there too you'll see a drop arrow.…For the most part the buttons in the different locations…work the same way with one exception.…The auto sum button is designed to add data…from above or from the left which you can sometimes…even redirect what it's trying to do.…
I'd like to put a total in right here in cell G2.…If I click the auto sum button…and either of its locations,…it gives me a preview of what it's about to do…and I'll simply press return.…As you get more comfortable with this…and perhaps some of you are already.…If you want this to be a little bit faster,…you could double click the auto sum button…as you see it on the standard toolbar, double click.…
