The Autosum formula in Excel lets you calculate the total of a specific set of cells — usually the total of the column or the row. It's great if you want to calculate the total number of sales in a month, for example. Generally we use the Sigma icon or manually type in =SUM() - but there is a faster way to do it. In this video, Nicky explains the shortcut for Autosum, and how you can use it to save time when working with spreadsheets.
