I have a list of prices and sum them up in a cell at the right.

Next to some prices I have the work "select".

How do I calculate the sum of all prices which next to them have the word "select"?

You can use the function Sumifs()

thanks, this is what worked for me: =SUMIFS(A3:A30;B3:B30;"=select") –  Edward Tanguay Aug 5 '11 at 10:22

I am trying to calculate the total of one cell (i5) of twelve months to get a yearly total. My formula was =SUM('January I5:DecemberI5!C30") does not work? I get #Name? How do you create the correct formula?

Kathy, welcome to superuser! Please post your question as new question and not as an answer to another question! Also, in your question, please elaborate a little more on the structure of the data you want to add - are the months in different worksheets or the same? –  Peter Albert Jan 9 '13 at 7:36
