AutoSum is an often overlooked, or taken for granted, feature within Excel. While its true that AutoSum is incredibly simple to use, there is a lot to be learned from how AutoSum can create more than just sums (totals). Within Microsoft Excel, the AutoSum tool can also generate descriptive statistics functions: Average, Minimum, Maximum, and Count. AutoSum also provides a shortcut to the Insert Function dialog box, can be used within Tables, and can even be applied across entire ranges or regions all at once. After you learn AutoSum, you'll no longer be left manually adding, repeatedly setting up the Sum function, or relying heavily on AutoFill.
Take your knowledge of AutoSum, and all associated tooling, beyond the simple "click here, click there" training you received in school or from on-the-job (OTJ) training and join host Chase Raz on a deep dive into AutoSum within this episode of the Excel Topic Series, presented by A.B. Gamma Training.

About the Excel Topic Series
The Excel Topic Series by A.B. Gamma Training is a multi-course training series that saves time learning Excel in-depth. Instead of covering the three levels of Excel—basic, intermediate, and advanced—across multiple days and then being required to individually integrate that knowledge, the Excel Topic Series performs deep-dive analysis and exploration of one Microsoft Excel topic and its associated tooling. This method combines Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced training into one short-form, and topic-oriented, course.
