# Thread: Create Loop to Sum 5 cells, Enter Value in 5th Cell

1. ## Create Loop to Sum 5 cells, Enter Value in 5th Cell

I unfortunately know almost nothing about VBA, so I'm really depending on you guys for help.

I'm trying to write a code that, in a new column(AN), a) sums 5 cells in another column(AM), b)re-starts the loop at the end of 5 cells, c)uses the 5th cell as the 1st value in the next loop and d)enters the sum in the 5th cell of column (AN). To be clear, I'd like the sum of AM4:AM8 to be populated in AN8, and so on, with the next sum to pull AM8 as its first value. There are also FALSE statements in column (AM) A standard sum offset will populate straight down instead of offsetting again, so I need a vba code.

I've attached the workbook. The values I want summed are in AM, and I'd like the sums to be in column AN.

I don't know if this is possible or hard, but I would be so unbelievable appreciative of help!

2. Hi there,

Give this a go and see if it does what you want. Copy the code into a standard module first. There is a link in my signature as to where to put it.

Code:
```Sub SUM_every_fifth()

Dim lSum As Double
Dim lLast As Double
Dim j As Long

Do Until Selection.Value = vbNullString
lSum = lLast
For j = 1 To 5
lSum = lSum + Selection.Value
Selection.Offset(1, 0).Select
Next j
Selection.Offset(-1, 1).Value = lSum
lLast = Selection.Offset(-1, 0).Value
Loop
End Sub```
Once you have it in there, select the first cell in the column of data, and run it.

Not the prettiest code, but hopefully it does what you're after.

4. Here's the code that worked:

Code:
```Sub Summate2():
Worksheets("Calc").Activate
Dim S As Double, r As Long, lr As Long, i As Integer
lr = Worksheets("Calc").Range("CH" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For r = 4 To lr:
For i = 0 To 4
If IsNumeric(Worksheets("Calc").Range("CH" & r + i).Value2) Then S = S + Worksheets("Calc").Range("CH" & r + i).Value2
Next i: r = r + i - 1
If r > lr Then GoTo EndSub
Worksheets("Calc").Range("CI" & r) = S: S = 0
Next r
EndSub: Worksheets("Calc").Range("CI" & lr) = S: End Sub```

5. How do I mark this as solved?

6. We don't mark threads as solved here, (one day I'll get around to adding that). Thanks for posting your solution back though, I appreciate it.
