## Lotus 123 Rel. 5.0 Formula

## Lotus 123 Rel. 5.0 Formula

(OP)

I'm trying to find a formula that will add the lowest 5 numbers out of 10. I have a formula that will delete one of the high numbers out of 10 but can't seem to figure out how to count the lowest 5 and ignore the highest 5. That formula I'm talking about is @sum(A1..A10)-@MAX(A1..A10).

I found one on the internet for Excel but I can't find out how to change it for Lotus 123.

@SMALL($A$1..$A$9,1)+@SMALL($A$1..$A$9,2)+@SMALL($A$1..$A$9,3)+@SMALL($A$1..$A$9,4)+@SMALL($A$1..$A$9,5)

If you organize your list of numbers in a column with a text header, then you can use a much simpler formula:

@DSUM($A$1..$A$9;0;A2<@SMALL($A$2..$A$9,6)) (untested)

Again, duplicates can mess up the answer.

Sorry I didn't get to this sooner, I have the test sheet at work and just got to try it this morning.

I tried the formula (the first one) and it works great. It also may surprise you to know that duplicate numbers do not mess up the formula. I tried it all different ways, did it on a calculator to be sure and it was right every time.

I didn't try the second one, had a little trouble understanding it, the first one made sense to me so that's what i'll go with.

Thanks for the reply, have a nice holiday season.
