You may add in Excel using a variety of techniques. Values can be added via functions, buttons, or formulae. The easiest method for adding values to a single cell will be covered in this article. Let's start by adding numbers to Excel now.

Adding numbers in excel online, 2016 and 2019

1. You may use a fairly straightforward formula to add numbers in a single cell.

2. In a cell of your choice, begin by entering the equal sign.

3. You may add as many numbers as you like by first entering an equal sign, followed by a number, and then a plus sign.

4. Click on  enter to see the results.

Adding cells in excel

1. Restart with the formula if you wish to add cells. Pick the cell where you wish to see the results to get started.

2. Type the equal sign.

3. Click on the cell that you want to add.

4. You can add as many cells as you like by typing the + symbol and then clicking on another cell.

5. Press on enter.

By using the same method as earlier, you may merge numbers and cells. Start by inputting the equal sign, followed by the desired number and a plus sign. Then click on a cell, add another number, and add as many more combinations as you like. The formula is also displayed in the Formula Bar.

Adding up a column in excel

Start by choosing an empty cell to add up the full column. I've selected cell C15 in this instance. The formula is then written by doing the subsequent steps.

1. Write the equal sign.

2. Now, type the word sum.

3. The First cell reference of that specific column, followed by a colon, and the Last cell reference of that particular column, as in =SUM, should be typed into the open parenthesis (First CELL: Last CELL)

4. Press enter.

The formula reads =SUM(C2:C14), where C2 is the first cell in the column and C14 is the last cell, as seen in the screenshot. After entering the final cell reference, pressing Enter, and viewing the results, there is no need to close the parentheses or type the formula in upper case.
