This tutorial explains the difference between the SUMIF and SUMIFS functions in terms of their syntax and usage, and provides a number of formula examples to sum values with multiple AND / OR criteria in Excel 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003 and lower.
As everyone knows, Microsoft Excel provides an array of functions to perform various calculations with data. A few articles ago, we explored COUNTIF and COUNTIFS, which are designed for counting cells based on a single condition and several conditions, respectively. Last week we covered Excel SUMIF that adds values meeting the specified criteria. Now it's time to go over the plural version of SUMIF  Excel SUMIFS that allows summing values by multiple criteria.
Those who are familiar with the SUMIF function might think that converting it to SUMIFS takes just an extra "S" and a few additional criteria. This would seem quite logical… but "logical" it's not always the case when dealing with Microsoft : )
The SUMIF function is used to conditionally sum values based on a single criteria. We discussed the SUMIF syntax in detail in the previous article, so let me give you just a quick summary now.
range
 the range of cells to be evaluated by your criteria, required.criteria
 the condition that must be met, required.sum_range
 the cells to sum if the condition is met, optional.As you see, the syntax of the Excel SUMIF function allows for one condition only. And still, we say that Excel SUMIF can be used to sum values with multiple criteria. How can that be? By adding the results of several SUMIF functions and by using SUMIF formulas with array criteria, as demonstrated in the examples that follow.
You use SUMIFS in Excel to find a conditional sum of values based on multiple criteria. The SUMIFS function was introduced in Excel 2007, so you can use it in all modern versions of Excel 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010 and 2007.
Compared to SUMIF, the SUMIFS syntax is a little bit more complex:
The first 3 arguments are mandatory, additional ranges and their associated criteria are optional.
sum_range
 one or more cells to sum, required. This can be a single cell, a range of cells or a named range. Only cells with numbers are summed; blank and text values are ignored.criteria_range1
 the first range to be evaluated by the associated criteria, required.criteria1
 the first condition that must be met, required. You can supply the criteria in the form of a number, logical expression, cell reference, text or another Excel function. For example you can use criteria such as 10, ">=10", A1, "cherries" or TODAY().criteria_range2, criteria2, …
 these are additional ranges and criteria associated with them, optional. You can use up to 127 range/criteria pairs in SUMIFS formulas. And now, let's have a look at the Excel SUMIFS formula with two conditions. Suppose, you have a table listing the consignments of fruit from different suppliers. You have the fruit names in column A, suppliers' names in column B, and quantity in column C. What you want is to find out a sum of amounts relating to a given fruit and supplier, e.g. all apples supplied by Pete.
When you're learning something new, it's always a good idea to start with simple things. So, to begin with, let's define all the arguments for our SUMIFS formula:
Now assemble the above parameters, and you will get the following SUMIFS formula:
=SUMIFS(C2:C9, A2:A9, "apples", B2:B9, "Pete")
To refine the formula further, you can replace the text criteria "apples" and "Pete" with cell references. In this case, you won't have to change the formula to calculate the quantity of other fruit from a different supplier:
=SUMIFS(C2:C9, A2:A9, F1, B2:B9, F2)
Since the aim of this tutorial is to cover all possible ways to sum values by several conditions, we will discuss formula examples with both functions  Excel SUMIFS and SUMIF with multiple criteria. To use them correctly, you need to clearly understand what these two functions have in common and in what way they are different.
While the common part is clear  similar destination and parameters  the differences are not so obvious, though very essential.
In Excel SUMIF and SUMIFS functions, the order of arguments is different. In particular, sum_range is the 1st parameter in SUMIFS, but it is 3^{rd} in SUMIF.
At first sight, it may seem that Microsoft deliberately complicates the learning curve for its users. However, upon a closer look, you will see the reasoning behind it. The point is that sum_range is optional in SUMIF. If you omit it, no problem, your SUMIF formula will sum values in the range (first parameter).
In SUMIFS, the sum_range is very important and obligatory, and that is why it comes first. Probably Microsoft guys thought that after adding the 10^{th} or 100^{th} range / criteria pair, someone might forget to specify the range to sum : )
In the SUMIF function, the sum_range argument does not necessarily have to be of the same size as the range argument, as long as you have the top left cell right. In Excel SUMIFS, each criteria_range must contain the same number of rows and columns as the sum_range parameter.
For example, =SUMIF(A2:A9,F1,C2:C18)
will return the correct result because Excel considers only the upper leftmost cell in the sum_range argument (C2 in this example, which is correct), and then includes as many columns and rows as contained in the range argument.
The SUMIFS formula =SUMIFS(C2:C9, A2:A9, "apples", B2:B10, "Pete")
will return the #VALUE! error because criteria_range2 (B2:B10) does not match in size criteria_range1 (A2:A9) and sum_range (C2:C9).
Alright, enough strategy (i.e. theory), let's get into the tactics (i.e. formula examples : )
A moment ago, we discussed a simple SUMIFS formula with two text criteria. In the same manner, you can use Excel SUMIFS with multiple criteria expressed by numbers, dates, logical expressions, and other Excel functions.
In our fruit suppliers table, suppose, you want to sum all deliveries by Mike with Qty. 200 or more. To do this, you use the comparison operator "greater than or equal to" (>=) in criteria2 and get the following SUMIFS formula:
=SUMIFS(C2:C9,B2:B9,"Mike",C2:C9,">=200")
We covered all possible comparison operators in detail when discussing Excel SUMIF function, the same operators can be used in SUMIFS criteria. For example, the following formula with return the sum of all values in cells C2:C9 that are greater than or equal to 200 and less than or equal to 300.
=SUMIFS(C2:C9, C2:C9,">=200", C2:C9,"<=300")
In case you want to sum values with multiple criteria based on the current date, use the TODAY() function in your SUMIFS criteria, as demonstrated below. The following formula sums values in column D if a corresponding date in column C falls within the last 7 days, including today:
=SUMIFS(D2:D10, C2:C10,">="&TODAY()7, C2:C10,"<="&TODAY())
In a similar fashion, you can use the Excel SUMIF function to sum values in a given date range. For example, the following SUMIFS formula adds the values in cells C2:C9 if a date in column B falls between 1Oct2014 and 31Oct2014, inclusive.
=SUMIFS(C2:C9, B2:B9, ">=10/1/2014", B2:B9, "<=10/31/2014")
The same result can be achieved by calculating the difference of two SUMIF functions, as demonstrated in this example  How to use SUMIF to sum values in a given date range. However, Excel SUMIFS is much easier and more understandable, isn't it?
When analyzing reports and other data, you may often need to sum values corresponding either to empty or nonempty cells.
Criteria  Description  Formula Example  
Blank cells  "="  Sum values corresponding to blank cells that contain absolutely nothing  no formula, no zero length string.  =SUMIFS(C2:C10, A2:A10, "=", B2:B10, "=")
Sum values in cells C2:C10 if the corresponding cells in columns A and B are absolutely empty. 
""  Sum values corresponding to "visually" blank cells including those that contain empty strings returned by some other Excel function (for example, cells with a formula like ="").  =SUMIFS(C2:C10, A2:A10, "", B2:B10, "")
Sum values in cells C2:C10 with the same conditions as the above formula, but includes empty strings. 

Nonblank cells  "<>"  Sum values corresponding to nonempty cells, including zero length strings.  =SUMIFS(C2:C10, A2:A10, "<>", B2:B10, "<>")
Sum values in cells C2:C10 if the corresponding cells in columns A and B are not empty, including cells with empty strings. 
SUMSUMIF or SUM / LEN 
Sum values corresponding to nonempty cells, not including zero length strings.  =SUM(C2:C10)  SUMIFS(C2:C10, A2:A10, "", B2:B10, "")
=SUM((C2:C10) * (LEN(A2:A10)>0)*(LEN(B2:B10)>0)) Sum values in cells C2:C10 if the corresponding cells in columns A and B are not empty, cells with zero length strings are not included. 
And now, let's see how you can use a SUMIFS formula with "blank" and "nonblank" criteria on real data.
Suppose, you have an order date in column B, delivery date in column C and Qty. in column D. How do you find the total of products that have not been delivered yet? That is, you want to know the sum of values corresponding to nonempty cells in column B and empty cells in column C.
The solution is to use the SUMIFS formula with 2 criteria:
=SUMIFS(D2:D10, B2:B10,"<>", C2:C10,"=")
As noted in the beginning of this tutorial, the SUMIFS function is designed with AND logic. But what if you need to sum values with multiple OR criteria, i.e. when at least one of the conditions is met?
The simplest solution is to sum the results returned by several SUMIF functions. For example, the following formula demonstrates how to find the total of products delivered by Mike and John:
=SUMIF(C2:C9,"Mike",D2:D9) + SUMIF(C2:C9,"John",D2:D9)
As you see, the first SUMIF function adds the quantities corresponding to "Mike", the other SUMIF function returns the amounts relating to "John" and then you add these 2 numbers.
The above solution is very simple and may get the job done quickly when there are only a couple of criteria. But a SUMIF + SUMIF formula may grow up enormously if you want to sum values with multiple OR conditions. In this case, a better approach is using an array criteria argument in the SUMIF function. Let's examine this approach now.
You can start by listing all of your conditions separated by commas and then enclose the resulting commaseparated list in {curly brackets}, which is technically called an array.
In the previous example, if you want to sum the products delivered by John, Mike and Pete, your array criteria will look like {"John","Mike","Pete"}. And the complete SUMIF function is SUMIF(C2:C9, {"John","Mike","Pete"} ,D2:D9)
.
The array argument consisting of 3 values forces your SUMIF formula to return three separate results, but since we write the formula in a single cell, it would return the first result only  i.e. the total of products delivered by John. To get this arraycriteria approach to work, you have to use one more little trick  enclose your SUMIF formula in a SUM function, like this:
=SUM(SUMIF(C2:C9, {"John","Mike","Pete"} , D2:D9))
As you see, an array criteria makes the formula much more compact compared to SUMIF + SUMIF, and lets you add as many values as you like in the array.
This approach works with numbers as well as with text values. For instance, if instead of the suppliers' names in column C, you had supplier IDs like 1, 2, 3 etc., then your SUMIF formula would look similar to this:
=SUM(SUMIF(C2:C9, {1,2,3} , D2:D9))
Unlike text values, numbers needn't be enclosed in double quotes in array arguments.
In case, your preferred way is to list the criteria in some cells rather that specify them directly in the formula, you can use SUMIF in conjunction with the SUMPRODUCT function that multiplies components in the given arrays, and returns the sum of those products.
=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(C2:C9, G2:G4, D2:D9))
Where G2:G4 are the cells containing your criteria, the suppliers' names in our case, as illustrated in the screenshot below.
But of course, nothing prevents you from listing the values in an array criteria of your SUMIF function if you want to:
=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(C2:C9, {"Mike","John","Pete"}, D2:D9))
The result returned by both formulas will be identical to what you see in the screenshot:
If you want to conditionally sum values in Excel not simply with multiple OR conditions, but with several sets of conditions, you will have to use SUMIFS instead of SUMIF. The formulas will be very similar to what we've just discussed.
As usual, an example might help to illustrate the point better. In our table of fruit suppliers, let's add the Delivery Date (column E) and find the total quantity delivered by Mike, John and Pete in October.
The formula produced by this approach includes a lot of repetition and looks cumbersome, but it is easy to understand and, most importantly, it works : )
=SUMIFS(D2:D9,C2:C9, "Mike", E2:E9,">=10/1/2014", E2:E9, "<=10/31/2014") +
SUMIFS(D2:D9, C2:C9, "John", E2:E9, ">=10/1/2014", E2:E9, "<=10/31/2014") +
SUMIFS(D2:D9, C2:C9, "Pete", E2:E9, ">=10/1/2014" ,E2:E9, "<=10/31/2014")
As you see, you write a separate SUMIFS function for each of the suppliers and include two conditions  equal to or greater than Oct1 (">=10/1/2014",) and less than or equal to Oct 31 ("<=10/31/2014"), and then you sum the results.
I've tried to explain the essence of this approach in the SUMIF example, so now we can simply copy that formula, change the order of arguments (as you remember it is different in SUMIF and SUMIFS) and add additional criteria. The resulting formula is more compact than SUMIFS + SUMIFS:
=SUM(SUMIFS(D2:D9,C2:C9, {"Mike", "John", "Pete"}, E2:E9,">=10/1/2014", E2:E9, "<=10/31/2014"))
The result returned by this formula is exactly the same as you see in the screenshot above.
As you remember, the SUMPRODUCT approach differs from the previous two in the way that you enter each of your criteria in a separate cell rather that specify them directly in the formula. In case of several criteria sets, the SUMPRODUCT function won't suffice and you will have to employ ISNUMBER and MATCH as well.
So, assuming that the Supplies Names are in cells H1:H3, Start Date is in cell H4 and End Date in cell H5, our SUMPRODUCT formula takes the following shape:
=SUMPRODUCT((E2:E9>=H4), (E2:E9<=H5), (ISNUMBER(MATCH(C2:C9, H1:H3,0))), D2:D9)
Many people wonder why use double dash () in SUMPRODUCT formulas. The point is that Excel SUMPRODUCT ignores all but numeric values, while the comparison operators in our formula return Boolean values (TRUE / FALSE), which are nonnumeric. To convert these Boolean values to 1's and 0's, you use the double minus sign, which is technically called the double unary operator. The first unary coerces TRUE/FALSE to 1/0, respectively. The second unary negates the values, i.e. reverses the sign, turning them into +1 and 0, which the SUMPRODUCT function can understand.
I hope the above explanation makes sense. And even if it doesn't, just remember this rule of thumb  use the double unary operator () when you are using comparison operators in your SUMPRODUCT formulas.
As you remember, Microsoft implemented the SUMIFS function in Excel 2007. If someone still uses Excel 2003, 2000 or earlier, you will have to use a SUM array formula to add values with multiple AND criteria. Naturally, this approach works in modern versions of Excel 2013  2007 too, and can be deemed an oldfashioned counterpart of the SUMIFS function.
In the SUMIF formulas discussed above, you have already used array arguments, but an array formula is something different.
Let's get back to the very first example where we found out a sum of amounts relating to a given fruit and supplier:
As you already know, this task is easily accomplished using an ordinary SUMIFS formula:
=SUMIFS(C2:C9, A2:A9, "apples", B2:B9, "Pete")
And now, let's see how the same task can be fulfilled in early "SUMIFSfree" versions of Excel. First off, you write down all the conditions that should be met in the form of range="condition". In this example, we have two range/condition pairs:
Condition 1: A2:A9="apples"
Condition 2: B2:B9="Pete"
Then, you write a SUM formulas that "multiplies" all of your range/condition pairs, each enclosed in brackets. The last multiplier is the sum range, C2:C9 in our case:
=SUM((A2:A9="apples") * ( B2:B9="Pete") * ( C2:C9))
As illustrated in the screenshot below, the formula perfectly works in the latest Excel 2013 version.
Even in modern versions of Excel, the power of the SUM function should not be underestimated. The SUM array formula is not simply gymnastics of the mind, but has a practical value, as demonstrated in the following example.
Suppose, you have two columns, B and C, and you need to count how many times column C is greater than column B, when a value in column C is greater or equal to 10. An immediate solution that comes to mind is using the SUM array formula:
=SUM((C1:C10>=10) * (C1:C10>B1:B10))
Don't see any practical application to the above formula? Think about it in another way : )
Suppose, you have the orders list like shown in the screenshot below and you want to know how many products have not been delivered in full by a given date. Translated into Excel's language, we have the following conditions:
Condition 1: A value in column B (Ordered items) is greater than 0
Condition 2: A value in column C (Delivered) in less than in column B
Condition 3: A date in column D (Due date) is less than 11/1/2014.
Putting the three range/condition pairs together, you get the following formula:
=SUM((B2:B10>=0)*(B2:B10>C2:C10)*(D2:D10<G2))
Well, the formula examples discussed in this tutorial have only scratched the surface of what Excel SUMIFS and SUMIF functions can really do. But hopefully, they have helped pointing you in the right direction and now you can sum values in your Excel workbooks no matter how many intricate conditions you have to consider.

I'm trying to sum info in a slightly different format. If in your first example if the supplier names (John, Mike,Pete) were in cells B1D1 and all the sales were in B2D9 under their names, I'm wanting to get the total number of fruit from each supplier on a separate sheet. ie Sumif John and Apples.
It should be an easy solution, but I'm not getting it  can you please assist?

SUMIF and SUMIFS can handle ranges, but not arrays. This means you can't use other functions like YEAR on the criteria range, since the result is an array. If you need this functionality, use the SUMPRODUCT function .

Hello, Please help and thank you in advance!!
I have a formula to sum values "TimeSheet!E:E" according to month selected "AC2" and by ID & Emp, but what I have been struggling with is the other part of the formula if a month is not selected and a quarter is selected.
Instead of months as text, I use 112 to simplify formula. This is the formula that I am using.
=SUM((MONTH(TimeSheet!$G:$G)=$AC$2)*(TimeSheet!$B:$B=$B5)*(TimeSheet!$J:$J=E$2)**(TimeSheet!$E:$E))
AC2 (Month 112/1Qtr, 2Qtr, 3Qtr, 4Qtr) B:B (Emp Column) E:E (Miles Column) G:G (Dates Column) J:J (ID Column)
The formula I have been trying is:
SUM(SUMIF(AC2,{"1","2","3","4","5","6","7","8","9","10","11","12"},TimeSheet!$J:$J=C$2,TimeSheet!$B:$B=$B5,(MONTH(TimeSheet!$G:$G)=$AC$2,TimeSheet!$E:$E),SUMPRODUCT((ROUNDUP(MONTH(TimeSheet!$G:$G)/3,0)=AC2,YEAR(TimeSheet!$G:$G)=AC2,TimeSheet!$J:$J=C$2,TimeSheet!$B:$B=$B5,TimeSheet!$E:$E))
Hello!
I’m sorry but your task is not entirely clear to me.
For me to be able to help you better, please describe your task in more detail. What exactly do you indicate in cell AC2 (month number or quarter number or date)?

I’m sorry but your task is not entirely clear to me. Could you please describe it in more detail? What result do you want to get?
I am trying to create a SUMIF formula for a variety of fields.
This is my current formula
=SUMIFS('General Acct  2020 Debits & Credits'!$G$581:$G$648,'General Acct  2020 Debits & Credits'!$B$581:$B$648,{"Transfer to Secured Acct (Special Projects)","Transfer to Reserve Acct","Transfer to Hydro Acct"},'General Acct  2020 Debits & Credits'!$C$581:$C$648,"Other")
The just of it is that if any of the "Transfer Accts" are chosen in column B and "Other" is chosen in Column C then then sum all amounts associated in column G (debit column)
right now if just returns 1 individual amount
Hello Erika!
If I understand your task correctly, you can use the SUM function:
=SUM(SUMIFS(‘General Acct – 2020 Debits & Credits’!$G$581:$G$648,’General Acct – 2020 Debits & Credits’!$B$581:$B$648,{“Transfer to Secured Acct (Special Projects)”,”Transfer to Reserve Acct”,”Transfer to Hydro Acct”},’General Acct – 2020 Debits & Credits’!$C$581:$C$648,”Other”))
If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
I want to add cell starting with 2 common letters. How can this be added to the formula.
Like
FL20.3  40
FL30.1 100
BL12.4  10
TC10.001  5
I want to add all FL20.3 and FL30.1. Is it possible?
Hello!
I’m sorry but your task is not entirely clear to me. Could you please describe it in more detail? What result do you want to get? Thank you!
I want to add sumifs 12 times( for calculation for 12 months). 3 additions are resulting correctly after that results are not as desired
Hello!
I’m sorry but your task is not entirely clear to me. For me to be able to help you better, please describe your task in more detail. Please specify what you were trying to find, what formula you used and what problem or error occurred. Give an example of the source data and the expected result.

Hello there,
=SUMIF(C2:C9,"Mike",D2:D9) + SUMIF(C2:C9,"John",D2:D9)
this sums regardless of any product, what if i want it to sum based on the product without declaring it in the formula
Ex: get me the sum of Mike and Pete if the prodcuts were a match
it gets me the oranges sum alone and the apples alone without me specifying it in the formula
could you help please?
Hello!
I recommend using the SUMIFS function, which calculates the amount according to several conditions.
Hello,
I have multiple columns I need to be able to sort Month by Month and then I have 9 columns that I need to find a % of based off the date or the month.
Ex: DOB, Male, Female, in a relationship, single, bald, has hair, Left handed, right handed. What % of males are single, bald and right handed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hello!
To count the number of specific values in a data range (for example, single, bald and right handed), use the COUNTIFS function
Hi,
I am trying to write a formula to sum all the heights for each sample that have a value greater than 10% of the highest height value. So for the first sample the highest height is 604 so the threshold would be 60.4, and the second sample the highest height is 605 so the threshold would be 60.5. I want to sum all the peaks above 60.4 and 60.5 respectively.
I can get excel to sum all the peak heights:
=IF(B2=B1,"",SUMIF(B:B,B2,G:G))
Or I am able to use this code to get the correct value, but I have had to manually select a range for this to work:
=SUMIF(G2:G27,">"&W3)
I believe the first formula can be tweaked to add another criteria to say =IF G:G >X . But I do not know how to combine my two formulae.
I am not sure whether to use SUMIFs or COUNTIFs.
Many thanks,
Jasmine

how can apply and (&) statement ( to sum different cells with multiple condition in SUMIFS function
Hi,
The syntax for the SUMIF function does not include &. If you explain your problem in more detail, I will try to help you.
Hi Alexander,
I need help with a 2D sumifs function... My firm has had employees tract their time details in a single spreadsheet.... Column A is the start time (standard dates in 6 minute increments starting from "8:00:00 AM"), column B is the stop time, column c is the project on 1/1, column d is comments on 1/1, column e is the project on 2/2, column f is 2/2 comments etc.
I would like to write a single formula in a summary sheet where I can reference each employees timesheet, and list each project in column a and each date in row 1, and summarize the data in the resulting table. his would be a simple copy and paste formula if the comments weren't there, but i don't want to delete all those extra columns for every employee. I have seen articles with a 2D sumif, but the index(match() is always used on the sum and never on the criteria.
Thanks.
great blog post
Hi Alexander,
I need your help with summarizing my data.
I have data about 162 countries from 1970 to 2013. In each year, I have data about the frequency of s specific ethnic group. There are different ethnic groups for each country, and I'm trying to summarize for each country the data of all the frequencies in a given decade. I can't just roll the command of "sum" to all countries because they are all different in the number of ethnic group cells.
What can I do?
It looks like this:
country year ethnic group freq SUM
US 1970 muslim number SUMMARY for 1970
US 1970 jewish number
US 1970 romancatholic number
US 1970 non.reli number
US 1970 orthodox number
Canada 1970 hindu number
Canada 1970 sikh number
Canada 1970 protestant number
Canada 1970 buddhist number
Canada 1970 jewish number
Canada 1970 Muslim number
Canada 1970 non.reli number
Hello!

Hello!
If you need to apply the SUMIFS function to two tables, use the OR logic as shown in this tutorial.
I hope it’ll be helpful.
I have a question about sumifs with multiple criteria. There is an example that shows products (orange, apple, banana), suppliers (Pete, Mike, ) and qty. I apply the similar logic/formula to a spreadsheet with a slightly different layout and it returns an error (#value). Imagine a spreadsheet where the name of the suppliers (Pete, Mike, etc.) are in row 1 and repeated across several columns multiple times. Now imagine in column A are the names of products (orange, banana, etc.) and they also appear in several rows multiple times. Inside the spreadsheet, where supplier/product intersects are the numbers (Qty). When I apply the same formula/logic), it returns error. My table has 10 columns (B to K) and 10 rows (A2 to A11). Here's my formula: =SUMIFS(B2:K11,B1:K1,"Pete",A2:A11,"apple"). This gives an error message (#value). Why wouldn't it count/add the quantities in the cells based on the criteria in this type of spreadsheet? I think it has something do with the table layout but can't figure it out.
Hello!
The SUMIFS function works with conditions in only one column, not a range of data. Therefore, in your case, this function cannot be used.
Try this formula:
=SUMPRODUCT(B2:M9*(A2:A9=N1)*(B1:M1=P1))
N1  product (apple)
P1  supplier (Pete)
You can change it for your data.
I hope I answered your question. If something is still unclear, please feel free to ask.
Hi Alexander, thank you but it is not working. I believe B2:M9 is the array (range) for the table/area that contains the values so that's what I selected. N1, P1, I used the values as +"apple", "pete" or was I supposed to create a separate tables to define P1 and N1? In any case, the formula resulted in error. Maybe you can test it at your end and send me an updated formula.
Hello!
I wrote this formula based on the description you provided in your original comment. B2:M9 is the range that numbers (Qty) are in. N1 says "apple", P1 says "Pete". Column A says orange, apple, banana, apple, banana, etc. Row 1 says Pete, Mike, Pete, etc.
What doesn't work for you?
Hi, The formula that I am using is =SUMIF('FA Journal'!A1:A10000,L51,'FA Journal'!J6:J615). I need this formula for over 5000 rows when I drag the formula down, the range (A1:10000 becomes A2:A10001, I want criteria to keep change as per the row number but not the range. How can I resolve this issue? Thanks
Hi,
You can learn more about references in this article: How to copy formula in Excel with or without changing references
Thank you for the formula and explanation of SUMIF(range;{array};range) to create an array of results and SUM(SUMIF(range;{array};range)) to sum the array of results into one cell! It helped me very much.
Thank you for these great explanations and clear examples. They helped me automate some manual things I have done over the past few years, and will help me reduce errors. Thanks!
in sumif how we can get average no.
hai thanks for this page, i can build 2 criteria and with 3 criteria.
with 2 criteria
=SUMIFS($G$18:$G$501;$D$18:$D$501;"Apple";$F$18:$F$501;"23/06/2021")
with 3 criteria
=SUMIFS($G$18:$G$501;$D$18:$D$501;"Apple";$F$18:$F$501;"23/06/2021";$B$18:$B$501;"city")
I have created a weekly revenue record of a hospital spread over a month. I created it such that each sheet contains 3 month record byweekly. Now my sheet 2 is supposed to be a summary sheet categorizing the income into the various hospital unit . I have used the SUMIFS Formula, it worked but could not place the revenue in its appropriate category.e.g revenue from pharmacy should go to pharmacy in the summary sheet while Revenue from laboratory should go to laboratory.but it is not so with what I created.I believe something is not right with my formula. What could be the problem and please can you help me out?
Thanks
Hello!
Unfortunately, without seeing your data it is difficult to give you any advice. I recommend paying attention to the SUMIFS function. You can find the examples and detailed instructions here: Excel SUMIFS and SUMIF with multiple criteria.
