Sum numbers in a column down until you come to a blank, then start again


Sounds like your issue can be solved readily with a pivot table.
If you give the columns of names a title like "NAME" and the number columns a name like "VALUE". All other columns should contain a unique name.

Then select the entire table, including the labels at the top ensuring that the range extends entirely over the column you need to sum the values of.

In Excel 2013, choose the INSERT menu and select the PIVOT TABLE command.
Insert the Pivot table into a new worksheet.
A new sheet will open with a strange-looking control panel on the right of the window.
Make sure that the box for NAME and VALUE (only) are checked

You will notice that Excel assumes that you want the SUM of the values for each NAME summed. The results are in the leftmost area of the worksheet.

If this works for you, please vote my answer as "helpful".

Cell freeze 3 rows together at a time.


Freeze a Row in Microsoft Excel
Microsoft Excel 2010 can freeze, or lock, a top row as you scroll down the worksheet.
For example, you may need to keep the top row of column titles visible at all times.
The "View" tab on the command ribbon contains the "Freeze Panes" button in the "Window" group.
A single row or a range of rows can lock through the "Freeze Top Row" or "Freeze Panes" options.

Open the Excel worksheet.
Click the top row heading.
The row heading displays a number just left of the first column of cells. The selected row appears shaded.


Click the "View" tab on the command ribbon.
Click the "Freeze Panes" button in the "Window" group.
A list of options appears.

Click the "Freeze Top Row" option.
A black horizontal line appears on the worksheet.
This line indicates the locked row that stays on the screen as you scroll down the worksheet.

Input data


If you want to transfer your data into SAS, SPSS, or some other program, follow these guidelines:
The cells in Row 1 should contain the column's eventual data set name. Each name should be a relatively short and unique acronym that clearly identifies the data. It should begin with a letter and contain only letters, numbers, or an underscore ( _ ) where spaces would naturally fall. Avoid using special characters such as $, &, @, in variable names. Since each row represents the values from one subject, the first column(s) should contain one or more variables that give each subject a unique identifier. They become especially important if you need to merge two or more data files.
In Excel, data formats are defined for a range of cells rather than for a complete column. For this reason it is important that each entire column, including cells with missing or uncollected data, have one, and only one, format. Actually, you do not need to format the entire column, only the portion you will eventually use. Highlight that portion and select the appropriate format from the Format/Cells option. Do not select formats that will enter commas, dollar signs, or other visual enhancements. Numeric, text, and date formats (e.g. mm/dd/yy is often a good choice) are probably the only formats you'll ever need.
The "Split" option (under the "Window" pull-down menu) keeps the row of variable names and the columns of identifiers in view, whatever range of cells in the worksheet you may need to review. First place the cursor at the most extreme upper left-hand corner where data entry begins (e.g., the intersection of Row 2 and the column in the upper left-hand corner where data appear) and then select "Split" from this menu. For any row or column of the worksheet you move to, you'll know exactly which variables you are observing (column names) and their associated ID values (rows).
For versions of Excel later than 4.0, one file can contain multiple worksheets. By default, the tabs at the bottom of these sheets are supplied names ("sheet1," "sheet2," etc.). You can change these names by clicking this space with your mouse and entering a new name. Use the same conventions for first-row variable names: use a short acronym of the page contents that begins with a letter, use only letters or numbers, and enter the underscore ( _ ) where a space naturally falls.

If you don't have MS Office, then you will have to purchase either the Excel component as a stand alone but you would be better off with the whole MSOffice as it contains your Word processor, Database, Excel, Powerpoint presentation software and in the 2003 version also Publisher.

It is not too badly priced anymore, but if you cant afford it then you may be able to borrow a copy whilst you are doing your course from a friend, but you will have to uninstall it afterwards.
