To quickly see how numbers in selected cells add up, take a look at the status bar below your spreadsheet. When you select two or more cells that have numeric data, Excel for the web automatically summarizes that data and shows the average, count, and sum on the status bar. These summarized values update immediately when you change values in the selected cells or select a different range of cells.
