How to Sum only Visible Cells in Excel? As there are different types of problem we face while using excel , as in last post i tried to explain how can we remove hidden rows, it was also for the sake of simplicity and to calculate only visible cells, However that method is good if you want to show only filtered data and you do not want to save irrelevant data.

Now if you want to sum only visible cells and do not want to include hidden rows in it this tutorial is for you. So today’s question is:

`=SUBTOTAL(109,E1:E2)`
where E1:E2 will be range of cells you want to calculate,

However if Cells are manually hided than we need to use `=SUBTOTAL(109,E1:E2)` to calculate to sum all cells except hidden ones.
This can be seen clearly in below image that when we hide 3rd value manually `=SUBTOTAL(109,E1:E2)` works for manually hided cells while `=SUBTOTAL(9,E1:E2)` did not work:
