How to Sum Absolute Values in Excel

To sum absolute values in Excel, you can use the ABS function. This function returns the absolute value of a number, which is a number without its sign. So, if a number is positive, the ABS function will return the same number. If a number is negative, the ABS function will return the positive version of that number.

For example, let's say you have a list of numbers in column A and you want to sum the absolute values of those numbers. You can use the following formula:

=SUM(ABS(A1:A5))

This formula will sum the absolute values of the numbers in cells A1 through A5.
