The sum of the same function that is used for a range of cells

Hi all,

With no background in excel i'm trying to create a sheet in wich we ca
schedule the worktime from various employees for a charit
organisation.

One of the functions i'm trying to implement is to show if respectivel
the morning, afternoon and evening are under- or overstaffed, or jus
adequately. For example i designed a function for the morninghours to b
read from a cell C4:

=IF(0,5-C4>0;0,5-C4;0)

now i need the sum of using this function seperately for differen
cells. So i designed it like this:

=SUM(IF(0,5-C4>0;0,5-C4;0);IF(0,5-C5>0;0,5-C5;0);IF(0,5-C6>0;0,5-C6;0);IF(0,5-C7>0;0,5-C7;0);IF(0,5-C8>0;0,5-C8;0);IF(0,5-C9>0;0,5-C9;0))

This works. But like the SUM(C4:C9) formula, i would prefer to brin
this formula down to a range instead of inserting the function for eac
cell seperately. I tried this:

=SUM(IF(0,5-(C4:C9)>0;0,5-(C4:C9);0)) an
=IF(0,5-(C4:C9)>0;0,5-(C4:C9);0)

It seemed logical to me, but apparently this doesn't work. Does somebod
know the proper notation for a range, because this would mean it is muc
easier for the user of the sheet to insert a new employee in the futur
without having to alter the affected formulas himself.

I also have a new function that reads like this:

=IF((IF(D4-0,5)>(5/24); (5/24); D4-0,5))>0; (IF(D4-0,5>(5/24); (5/24)
D4-0,5)); 0)

This works also, but again i would like to use it for the range D4 to D
in this case. I hope/think the same answer for notation applies here a
well, but i just add it for the sake of complete info.

Thanks so much to anyone who replies in advance,

sincerely,

Jori

This works. But like the SUM(C4:C9) formula, i would prefer to bring
this formula down to a range instead of inserting the function for each
cell seperately.
try:
=SUM(IF(C4:C9<0.5,0.5-C4:C9))
and enter the arrayy formula with CTRL+Shift+Enter

Hi Claus,

Thanks for your assistance, it's much appreciated

Your suggestion worked liked a charm. I guess this is my introduction t
