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 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 : )
Excel SUMIF function  syntax & usage
The SUMIF function is used to conditionally sum values based on a single criteria. We discussed its 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.
Excel SUMIFS function  syntax & usage
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 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:
 sum_range  C2:C9
 criteria_range1  A2:A9
 criteria1  "apples"
 criteria_range2  B2:B9
 criteria2  "Pete"
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)
Using SUMIFS and SUMIF in Excel  things to remember
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.
1. The order of arguments
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 : )
2. Sum range and criteria range should be equally sized
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 : )
How to use SUMIFS in Excel  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.
Example 1. Excel SUMIFS with comparison operators
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")
Example 2. Using Excel SUMIFS with dates
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?
Example 3. Excel SUMIFS with blank and nonblank cells
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,"=")
Using Excel SUMIF with multiple OR criteria
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?
Example 1. SUMIF + SUMIF
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.
Example 2. SUM & SUMIF with an array argument
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.
Example 3. SUMPRODUCT & SUMIF
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:
Excel SUMIFS with multiple OR criteria
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.
Example 1. SUMIFS + SUMIFS
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.
Example 2. SUM & SUMIFS with an array argument
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.
Example 3. SUMPRODUCT & SUMIFS
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.
Using Excel SUM in array 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.
Example 1. Sum with multiple AND criteria in Excel 2003 and earlier
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.
Example 2. SUM array formulas in modern Excel versions
Even in modern versions of Excel 2016, 2013, 2010 or 2007, 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.

Hi Svetlana, could i please get some help with this one
My previous formula is working, but we have had a change of data from another department, so i am hoping to get an outcome from the following
Column AF has a total figure of $, in that total, they are either amounts of $135 or $180, but the spreadsheet that i am importing into my spreadsheet doesn't specify that amount that the total is derived from.
my previous formula was
=SUM(SUMIFS(AF11:AF5000,I11:I5000,{"BSB30115"},AK11:AK5000,{"organisation name"}))
I would like two formulas as they need to go into two separate cells, so from Column AF, i need a formula that uses that column and works out the total amount, whether it is 2 amounts of $360 (these amounts can be as high as $2520 in total), 1 amount of $180 and then the other one being the same type of formula but the amount of $135.
so the return values would be in two cells, one being for the $180 amounts (total) and then one for $135 amounts (total)
so my end result would be splitting the one column to have two different totals for each of the criteria, hope this makes sense,
Thank you in advance

Hi, Sharon,
please, send us your workbook with the data at support@ablebits.com and link this article and your comment in the letter. We will try to help you out.
Hello i have a question.
I was looking for a function that add votes or number based on criteria. for example in range from A1:A10 for every "Artour" will add +1 to box C3, so if i have 1 Artour C3=1, and if i have 5 it will be 5. I was thinking perhaps sumif was the right function but apparently i was wrong. I could really use some help.
thanks before
Hi, Artour,
the function you need is called COUNTIF. For your given example, place the following into C3 cell:
=COUNTIF(A1:A10,"Artour")
Note, that it won’t count the word “Artour” within a cell with more than one word (meaning, it works only for the cell with one single word “Artour” in it). For more details and info, please, feel free to check another article out  COUNTIF in Excel.
Please assist me

Hi,
I have a situation similar to "Example 2. SUM & SUMIF with an array argument" under "Using Excel SUMIF with multiple OR criteria".
But, the array is specified in a different cell i.e. the criteria {"John","Mike","Pete"} is given in a different cell. How do I reference that cell with criteria in the sumif statement.
Thanks.
if in criteria i used less than sign like <60 and if i want to get output from range who is matching with <60 then how i use sumifs formula to get that
please find below example for more details on it,
Age Amount
<60 2500.00
i m using formula as =sumifs(Range:criteria,criteria) so what is wrong in it
Hi,
This is Darshan.
In example one. Can we mix with criteria rang also, as below.
> Original >> SUMIFS(sum_range, criteria_range1, criteria1,[criteria_range2, criteria2],...)
> Amended >> SUMIFS(sum_range, criteria_range1, criteria from A1:A20,[criteria_range2, criteria2],...)
I hope this explain.
Thank you,
Darshan
Hello Ablebits team!
I have an interesting one for you. Can we make the sum_range dependent upon criteria in another cell? Let's say I have this formula:
=SUMIFS(Base!$AF$4:$AF$2762,Base!$O$4:$O$2762,$B9)
But I want to be able to change the $AF based on a value in another cell (Let's assume cell D6), so that when I update the value in D6 to AG, the cell begins summing information in Column AG instead of Column AF. Is this possible with a formula, or do I have to update the sum_range columns every time I update?
Большое спасибо!
Hi
I currently have a formula as =SUMIF(B3,"Buy",G3)*I3+J3+K3
(If buy, multiply units by unit price, PLUS fee, PLUS tax).
How do I add another argument, so that if B3 is “Divided”, “Distribution” , or “Sell”, then multiply units by unit price, LESS fee, LESS tax)?
Many thanks

Hello,
I need a formula that sums two numbers (cell a4+a5) if it is greater than 1 and less than 35. Also, I need the same for the difference of the same cells and criteria with absolute value. Lastly, for each formula where the sum or difference is outside the range, I need the cell to blank (no zeroes).
Thank you for your assistance,
Tim
hi, tnx & can you plz. help me to get the formula for below..
col:A Col:B Col:C Col:D

=SUMIFS($C:$C,$B:$B,"jony",$A:$A,"apple",$d:$d,42767)
This is assuming you are looking at 2/1/2017. If not, enter the date you're looking for in Column D into an open cell, change the format to number, and replace the 42767 from the formula with the updated number.
However, this will not return a result of 20. According to your data, Jony sold only 10 apples on 2/1.
Correction; damn dyslexia. Jony sold no apples on 2/1, according to the data. He did, however sell 20 banna on that date.
Hi Trenton,
Thank you for sharing your knowledge on our blog!
Just a minor improvement on the formula that can save a few seconds on date conversion:
Excel SUMIF and SUMIFS can understand dates in the default format, so you can include the date directly in the formula like this:
=SUMIFS($C:$C,$B:$B,"jony",$A:$A,"apple",$D:$D,"02/01/2017")
Or you can supply it by using the DATE function:
=SUMIFS($C:$C,$B:$B,"jony",$A:$A,"apple",$D:$D,DATE(2017,2,1))
too good
thank you so much
When creating a SUMIF statement you search via a row?
You search columns when using SUMIF/SUMIFS. If your data is in Rows, copy and paste transposed to move the data from rows to columns.
I am trying making the standard format to use the time sheet for technician,From this i need to calculate 2 separate time for all technician based on number of calls per day,one for Administration Time which is time used for Travelling inbetween the customer & office and other one for time used at customer place,how much time Technician spent for that particular customer.See below format i used for my sheet & formula for the same.
Format:
Office Time In (A) /In time @ Customer1 Place(B) / Out time @ customer1 Place(C) / In time @ Customer2 Place(D) / Out time @ customer2 Place(E) /In time @ Customer3 Place(F) / Out time @ customer3 Place(G).
Formula : =((B16A16)+(D16C16)+(F16E16))
If i used above formula to calculate the Admin time,i am getting Minus Value if i not fill the time data@cell or if i use zero value for customer3.
Pls advice.
Thanks & Regards

Hello,
I'm trying to sumifs from a dropdown list with this codes 3.1, 3.2 ... when it comes to 3.10 it takes the sum of 3.1 and not 3.10.
=SUMIFS(H13:H265,F13:F265,"3.10")
Can someone help??
Many thanks,
Gurutze
I am trying to create a formula in a column with the range (f3:f27). I would like to count how many times, numbers between 0 and 150 are in that range? What should my formula be? =sumif(f3:f27,"150") is not working. What am I missing?
Hi,
The below function code will perfectly work in same sheet, i required multiple pages code, could you help on this.
=SUMIFS(D3:D274,B3:B274,"Niyaz",C3:C274,"yes")
Hi,
please take a look at this tutorial to learn how to reference other sheets of your workbook. Lots of examples are included :)
Thank you
Hi,
I was trying to do multiple if statements in one cell, when I try to enter the third if&sumif it states that I've entered too many arguments. Do you have any work around suggestions. Essentially I want the value in the cell to change based on what the user selects in the drop down box and the column that is calculated as the sum varies upon their selection.
=IF($H$8="PO Amount",SUMIFS('012017'!AA:AA,'012017'!L:L,[@[More Info]],'012017'!C:C,[@[PO No.]]),IF($H$8="Open PO",SUMIFS('012017'!AG:AG,'012017'!L:L,[@[More Info]],'012017'!C:C,[@[PO No.]])))
Hi.
In your original example, if one was wanting to find out how many apples were not sold by Pete, is there a way to do this without telling the formula to calculate Mike and John and Sally's contributions?
I.E. minus Pete (and any other multiples you want to find out).
I have a spreadsheet where I need to calculate nationalities and I want to exclude only certain nationalities for my total. Is there a way to do this without having to input all of the nationalities I want into the formula?
The SUMIFS with array formula works really well for the nationalities I now need to exclude from my final cells.
Thanks
Hi Dan,
You can use the "not equal to" operator, like this:
=SUMIF(B2:B10, "<>"&"Pete", C2:C10)
To exclude more than 1 item:
=SUMIFS(C2:C10, B2:B10,"<>"&"Pete", B2:B10,"<>"&"Mike")
Hi Svetlana
I forgot to say thanks for this formula. It completely did the trick.
Thanks
Dan
Column I (Bridge #)
Column M ( Grade)
Column P (Qty)
Actually, I need
=SUMIF($I$5:$I$2276,"B1",$P$5:$P$2276)
need to use 3 column 2 criteria
if cell A has a value then cell k = CELL D  CELL A
If cell B has a value then cell k = CELL D + CELL B
some one please help me with a formula for the above.
Hi, Darsan,
if your value is in A2, and you need to check whether it contains a number, put the following into K cell where you want to see the result:
=IF(ISNUMBER(A2),D2A2,"")
in case you need to see if there's anything at all in the cell, use the following:
=IF(NOT(ISBLANK(A2)),D2A2,"")
Please adjust the formula for your second condition as well.
Feel free to check out our article about the IF function to learn why it is used and when in Excel.
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=RC[1]SUMIF(R9C14:R90C14, RC[3], R9C11:R90C11)" THIS WORKS FINE
But  I need it to look as to columns
i.e.
RC[1] is the total hours a crew is available
R9C11:R90C11 is a column containing the hours required for each job
I need the hours from Column 11 to subtract from the total crew hours available if:
Column 14 OR Column 15 matches the crew name in column rc[3]
THIS IS NOT WORKING
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=RC[1]SUMIFS(R9C11:R90C11, R9C14:R90C14, RC[3], R9C15:R90C15, RC[3])"
Hi.
I need help writting a formula that adds the top 4 values out of 5.
I think it is a sumproduct and a large formula but I can't seem to get it to work.
=SUMPRODUCT(LARGE(B6:f6,{1,2,3,4})) is not working for me?
Any ideas?
Many thanks.

Hi Natalia,
Hope your well.
I'm trying to sum up Quantities based on date range.
In my workbook, I have the following worksheets
“Stock”
“CustomerPN”
Within “Stock” worksheet I have two cells with dates, $B$2 start date, $C$2 End Date, and part number in cell B21 for example
Within “Customer” worksheet I have named ranges
“OrderQTY”
“CustomerPN”
“DateDue”
This formula, with multiple criteria’s works perfectly
=IF($B$2=$C$2,SUMIFS(OrderQTY, CustomerPN,B21,DateDue,$B$2),(SUMIFS(OrderQTY, CustomerPN,B21,DateDue,$B$2)+SUMIFS(OrderQTY, CustomerPN,B21,DateDue,$C$2)))
ie if start date in B2 equals end date in C2, then give result for B2 date only, else give result based on dates between B2 and C2
Note “B21” is my lookup value
however I’m guessing it can be written shorter.
I’ve tried
=SUMIFS(OrderQTY, CustomerPN,B21,DateDue,”> =”&$B$2, DateDue,”< =”&$C$2) but the result returned is zero
Can you see what I’m doing wrong, or is the longer version of the formula best?
Regards
Eddie

I have cells from AH containing grades. E.g: A=9, B=3, C=2, D=7, E=3, F=5, G=1, H=2.
How can I use excel to sum only the best six grades out of the eight grades?
E.g:(1+2+2+3+3+5)=16
So that total best six grades will be 16.
Thanks.

Hi, I am trying to SUMIF the following:
Channel, Product and Price
Under channel column I have different criteria: agent, google, organic, etc.
Under product: 5 different products/criteria
Under price: products actual prices that I want to get it summed accordingly.
i.e.: Channel range. I want to sum all google leads for the various products.
for Google sales, MBA products only, Google sales, Postgraduate Certificates, etc.
This is what I am doing but it is not summing correctly.
=SUMIFS(J2:J40,$B$2:$B$40, "google",$F$2:$F$40,"PGC")+SUMIFS(J2:J40,$B$2:$B$40,"facebook",$F$2:$F$40,"PGC")+SUMIFS(J2:J40,$B$2:$B$40,"organic",$F$2:$F$40,"PGC")+SUMIFS(J2:J40,$B$2:$B$40, "affiliate",$F$2:$F$40,"PGC")+SUMIFS(J2:J40,$B$2:$B$40, "alumni",$F$2:$F$40,"PGC")+SUMIFS(J2:J40,$B$2:$B$40, "referral",$F$2:$F$40,"PGC")
In the end I want to find out how much sales we got from google for a particular product.
Can you help, please?
thanks,
Guiherme
Guiherme, Would it work if you put the absolute$ reference on the J2:J40 AND put a space before and after each of the + symbols ?
was >>>SUMIFS(J2:J40,$B$2:$B$40, "google",$F$2:$F$40,"PGC")+SUMIFS(J2:J40...
try>>> SUMIFS($J$2:$J$40,$B$2:$B$40,"google",$F$2:$F$40,"PGC") + SUMIFS($J$2:$J$40...
a space before and after the + symbol may help the formula work consistently.
Hope something works out for you.

Hello, please can someone help me?
I have 2 sheets, one with the current sales by location and the other sheet exactly the same but without figures. I basically need to model it for different scenarios.
This is how it works in my head but not in reality.
=IF(Scenarios!B1="1",SUMIF('Project Sales month only'!C:C,Scenarios!C3,'Project Sales month only'!I:I*2))
I have 3 different scenarios so will need to add the other 2 if statements on but please can someone help me?
Thanks in advance
Hi Svetlana Cheusheva,
Hope you are doing good.....
I have couple of question on Sum formula.
Sum it to total
Sumif is to total with one condition/Criteria
Sumifs is to total with one or more condition/criteria that to if all condition/criteria satisfy only then only it display the results that is output. my question it should give the output or result even if any one condition/criteria satisfy also.
Thanks in advance

I would like to sum the Expected Payment column if the date in the Payment Due Date column is a date in 2018. I have tried both sumif and sumproduct, however, I believe that since the columns I am referencing are formulas which generate a $, date, or blank, it is not working.
K13:K36=Expected Payment (is a formula that generates a $ or blank) L13:L36=Payment Due Date (is a formula that generates a date of blank)
If someone has an answer for this, it would be greatly appreciated! :)
excel formula for 25 mg*2=50 mg
Hello,
I am doing a multiple criteria SUMIFS but with one range I'd like it to be an OR. (The works great for multiple if there are only one or two NOTS, but there are several 'not wanted' and only 2 wanted.)
I can do a SUMIFS + SUMIFS but the braces option do not seem to work for a cell reference being used for the criteria:
working:
=SUMIFS($K$4:$K$503,$H$4:$H$503,"=" & $AA45,$F$4:$F$503,"Renewal",$L$4:$L$503,"="&DropDowns!$A$28 ) + SUMIFS($K$4:$K$503,$H$4:$H$503,"=" & $AA45,$F$4:$F$503,"Renewal",$L$4:$L$503,"="&DropDowns!$A$27 )
but want to do something like this (since all other criteria is the same)
... $H$4:$H$503,"=" & $AA45,$F$4:$F$503,"Renewal"
============================================================
=SUMIFS($K$4:$K$503,$H$4:$H$503,"=" & $AA45,$F$4:$F$503,"Renewal",$L$4:$L$503,{"="&DropDowns!$A$28,"="&DropDowns!$A$27} )
is it placement? Does the 'or' criteria need to be first? (the Or function does not work here)
$L$4:$L$503,{"="&DropDowns!$A$28,"="&DropDowns!$A$27}
Is there another sequence for the braces? {"="&DropDowns!$A$28,"="&DropDowns!$A$27}
The weird "="&cell is the only way my system will allow the criteria in that cell to be used maybe since it is a text.
Thank you for any insight.

I have a person information spreadsheet with about 2000 rows. I need a formula that will total the 'Sex' and 'Race' columns for the gender and race details. Ex. White Males = ?
Black Males = ? White Females = ?. The single criteria in the 'Sex' column will be either M or F. The 'Race' criteria will be a single identifier for the race. This seems to be a common problem but I cannot make it work. Thanks for any help.
Hello, David:
With that many rows of data I would use a Pivot Table.
Svetlana Cheusheva, you are fantastic. This was quite a piece of valuable information. Thanks a lot, you made my day.
{=sum((F:F="")*(A:A<20)*(B:B))}
F = Name , A = Value , B = Value
I use this formula when I want to know the value which is under 20). This is fine. All I wanna know is how can I calculate the value which between 20 to 50. Please help me out.
