=Sum() won't sum, but adding same cells (=a1+a2...) works?!?
I have a sheet where the sum function always returns 0, but if I write a manual formula simply adding the same cells (=a1+a2... etc.) then the function produces the correct answer. This means that the source data is *NOT* formatted as plain text. And I've selected all the source cells and made sure they are, in fact, formatted as numbers. Still the =Sum() function does not work. I am stumped. The only reason that I can imagine Sum() not working is when the source data is formatted as plain text, but that's not the case. here.
