Pretty straightforward.

I want to use a SUMPRODUCT but only for visible rows.

I've tried =SUMPRODUCT(A2:A10, SUBTOTAL(9,B2:B10)) ... didn't work, even as an array formula.

I'm probably missing something obvious but ... why doesn't this work? How can I get this to work?

  • What do you mean by "visible"? Can you post up a screen shot. In the words of Tom Cruise, "Help me... Help you...".

for doing that, use the formula:

As said in comments: keep in mind that SUBTOTAL does not work with manually hidden rows. Only rows which are hidden due to a "filter" will be skipped in the calculation.

Thanks to XOR LX: If increasing the parameter of SUBTOTAL by 100 it will also work with manually hidden rows. The formula then would be:

  • yes I have... just keep in mind that subtotal does not work with manually hidden rows. you need to filter the range Aug 6, 2016 at 8:21
  • @Dirk Reichel Are you sure about that? Do you understand the difference between, for example, =SUBTOTAL(9, and =SUBTOTAL(109,?

  • @XORLX yes I am sure. If you run the the formula via evaluate formula you will see that column A is multiplied by column B while the filtered rows of column B will return as 0. This way only the products of the visible lines will be summed up. Still there is the possibility that I am wrong, but right now, I am sure that is exactly what the OP is looking for...

    Yes, but that is not the same as saying that "subtotal does not work with manually hidden rows". It does, provided you apply the appropriate parameter.

It will work on both rows hidden manually or by filter.

    Is there a specific reason you are repeating already accepted answer? I'd recommend deleting this. I'd also recommend that you check the Help section answering and asking - good answers and questions are how you collect reputation. That will also help you understand why this isn't considered a good answer, and why the community may well decide to delete it if you don't. Sep 29, 2021 at 23:55
  • The formulas are different! One uses 109, the other 9 in the subtotal. And the user explained the difference.

Alternatively, you can add a new column that outputs 0 or 1 if the row is hidden and add this array to the SumProduct formula.

Formula for the IsHidden column:

= IF( SUBTOTAL(103,A2)=1, 1, 0)
