We have the same set of numbers, but Excel gets a different sum.  You still are in the lead though.  Good one.  What can you do with less than 11 letters?

I am afraid you and I set the bar too high.  No one else wants to play.  I did it by using a long word.  Yours was clever. 

 

Get enough letters in the word and it will add up even if they are not all clustered at the front of the alphabet.   

 

 

Mary Poppins word comes to mind.  Since that is not a real word, don't think it counts.
