# Refer to Range by cells’ numbers2

## Refer to Range by cells’ numbers

(OP)
I need to Sum cells in a Range, i.e. from B2 to AB2 and put a Sum in Cell AC2, but I know the row number and the column number, so I would like to use Sum Range from Cells(2, 2) to Cells(2, 28)

Having trouble with the syntax. Any ideas?

Hi,

"Sum Range from Cells(2, 2) to Cells(2, 28)"

Assuming that the sheet you're referencing is active...

#### CODE

nSum = Application.Sum(Range(Cells(2, 2), Cells(2, 28)))

Skip,

Just traded in my OLD subtlety...
for a NUance!

Thanks,

This is what I came up with, when my Row is intR, start column is 2 and last Column is intLastCol:

#### CODE

Cells(intR, intLastCol + 1).Value = WorksheetFunction.Sum(Range(Cells(intR, 2), Cells(intR, intLastCol)))

Which is the same as what you gave me

What about if - instead of calculating the Sum, I would enter the Formula for Sum?

Cells(intR, intLastCol + 1).FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM(R" & intR & "C2:R" & intR & "C" & iIntLastCol & ")"

combo
