Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This can be don a number of ways. if the numerical values are all in the same column you can use the auto sum feature. other than that if the numerical values are present all you need to do is go to the cell where you want the results and type in the calculation formula. use an equal sign followd by the cell reference a + the next cell reference and so on.

    Is this an Excel software (if understood correctly)? Did you want to add the numbers and make a total? If yes, select any blank cell in same worksheet, now press + Or = key (keyboard) and then type all the cell references like A+B+C+D+F Or A1+B1+C1+D1+F1 and press enter key. By the way why won't you ask your teacher?

    You will need to translate the alpha values to numeric values before you can add them. For one shot applications (use it once and discard) I typically will use a look up table or a nested if (depends on my mood and/or the number of values) in separate columns off to the side. I will second Suhendu's last statement.
