Is there no way that excel can auto graph it?

User

Sorry 2685

User

I'm confused. The problem statement was about sum. And now you are talking about graph?

User

Yes I want to sum all the Accra numbers to populate a graph

Excelchat Expert

There are many ways to graph the totals but all those methods would require a auto sum table.

User

Okay, for some reason I thought that there was a simpler way, so i have to sum up all Accra with a look up formula?

Not necessarily a lookup table is required. We can make a pivot table too.

User
25/07/2018 - 09:02

Yes, of course Pivot table! Thanks I am on it.
