Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the file in the folder shown above.

Create a formula which uses the LEFT function and string concatentation to calculate the range name for any category chosen - this should appear in the green cell:

Here we have also used the LOWER function to put the category code into lower case

Put a formula  into the blue cell using the INDIRECT function to calculate the total for the category entered for the three months:

When you change the category, the total will change

You want to sum not the range B14, but the range whose name appears in the range B14.

Save and close the workbook.
