If your numbers are in the range G1 to G15 try it like this:

=SUM(G1:G15)

When you need to reference a range of cells think of the colon as the word 
"to". G1 to G15 = G1:G15.

Auto-format in Microsoft Excel.
Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8- 10, in Excel, it constantly re-formats it to a date. If I change the formatting to "General" it turns it into a random number, usually 38209. I would like to turn off ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too much. How do I disable this frustrating feature? thanks. Hi Paul When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel thinks you mean a date so converts it as such. A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10 2004 which is not a ra...

Excel DNS query
Hello, Is there a way for an Excel function to query a DNS server? Thanks.
