How to use SUMIF function in Excel with formula examples

This tutorial explains the Excel SUMIF function in plain English. The main focus is on real-life formula examples with all kinds of criteria including text, numbers, dates, wildcards, blanks and non-blanks.

Microsoft Excel has a handful of functions to summarize large data sets for reports and analyses. One of the most useful functions that can help you make sense of an incomprehensible set of diverse data is SUMIF. Instead of adding up all numbers in a range, it lets you sum only those values that meet your criteria.

So, whenever your task requires conditional sum in Excel, the SUMIF function is what you need. A good thing is that the function is available in all versions, from Excel 2000 through Excel 365. Another great thing is that once you've learned SUMIF, it will take you very little effort to master other "IF" functions such as SUMIFS, COUNTIF, COUNTIFS, AVERAGEIF, etc.

SUMIF in Excel - syntax and basic uses

The SUMIF function, also known as Excel conditional sum, is used to add up cell values based on a certain condition.

The function is available in Excel 365, Excel 2021, Excel 2019, Excel 2016, Excel 2013, Excel 2010, Excel 2007, and lower.

The syntax is as follows:

SUMIF(range, criteria, [sum_range])

As you see, the SUMIF function has 3 arguments - first 2 are required and the last one is optional.

  • Range (required) - the range of cells to be evaluated by criteria.
  • Criteria (required) - the condition that must be met. It may be supplied in the form of a number, text, date, logical expression, a cell reference, or another Excel function. For example, you can enter the criteria such as "5", "cherries", "10/25/2014", "<5", etc.
  • Sum_range (optional) - the range to sum if the condition is met. If omitted, then range is summed.
Note. Please pay attention that any text criteria or criteria containing logical operators must be enclosed in double quotation marks, e.g. "apples", ">10". Cell references should be used without the quotation marks, otherwise they would be treated as text strings.

Basic SUMIF formula

To better understand the SUMIF syntax, consider the following example. Suppose you have a list of products in column A, regions in column B, and sales amounts in column C. Your goal is to get a total of sales for a specific region, say North. To have it done, let's build an Excel SUMIF formula in its simplest form.

You start with defining the following arguments:

  • Range - a list of regions (B2:B10).
  • Criteria - "North" or a cell containing the region of interest (F1).
  • Sum_range - the sales amounts to be added up (C2:C10).

Putting the arguments together, we get the following formula:

=SUMIF(B2:B10, "north", C2:C10)


=SUMIF(B2:B10, F1, C2:C10)

Both formulas only sum sales in the North region:
Using SUMIF function in Excel

Note. The sum_range parameter actually defines only the upper leftmost cell of the range to be summed. The remaining area is defined by the dimensions of the range argument.

In practice, this means that sum_range argument does not necessarily have to be of the same size as range argument, i. e. it may have a different number of rows and columns. However, the top left cell must always be the right one. For example, in the above formula, you can supply C2, or C2:C4, or even C2:C100 as the sum_range argument, and the result will still be correct. However, the best practice is to provide equally sized range and sum_range.

How to use SUMIF in Excel - formula examples

Hopefully, the above example has helped you gain some basic understanding of how the function works. Below you will find a few more formulas that demonstrate how to use SUMIF in Excel with various criteria.

SUMIF greater than or less than

To sum numbers greater than or less than a particular value, configure the SUMIF criteria with one of the following logical operators:

  • Greater than (>)
  • Greater than or equal to (>=)
  • Less than (<)
  • Less than or equal to (<=)

In the table below, supposing you wish to add up the sales numbers for the items that ship in 3 or more days. To express this condition, put a comparison operator (>) before the number and surround the construction in double quotes:

=SUMIF(C2:C10, ">3", B2:B10)

If the target number is in another cell, say F1, concatenate the logical operator and cell reference:

=SUMIF(C2:C10, ">"&F1, B2:B10)
SUM IF greater than

In a similar manner, you can sum values smaller than a given number. For this, use the less than (<) operator:

=SUMIF(C2:C10, "<3", B2:B10)

SUM IF equal to

A SUMIF formula with the "equal to" criteria works for both numbers and text. In such criteria, the equals sign is not actually required.

For instance, to find a total of the items that ship in 3 days, either of the below formulas will do:

=SUMIF(C2:C10, 3, B2:B10)


=SUMIF(C2:C10, "=3", B2:B10)

To sum if equal to cell, supply a cell reference for criteria:

=SUMIF(C2:C10, F1, B2:B10)

Where B2:B10 are the amounts, C2:C10 is the shipment duration, and F1 is the desired delivery time.
SUM IF equal to cell

Likewise, you can use the "equal to" criteria with text values. For instance, to add up the Apples amounts, choose any of the formulas below:

=SUMIF(A2:A10, "apples", B2:B10)

=SUMIF(A2:A10, "=apples", B2:B10)

=SUMIF(A2:A10, F1, B2:B10)

Where A2:A10 is the list of items to compare against the value in F1.
SUM IF equal to text

The above formulas imply that the criterion matches the entire cell contents. Consequently, the SUMIF function will add up Apples sales but not, say, Green Apples. To sum partial matches, construct the "if cell contains" criteria like in this SUMIF wildcard formula.

Note. Please pay attention that, in Excel SUMIF formulas, a comparison or equals operator should always be enclosed in double quotes, whether used on its own or together with a number or text.

SUM IF not equal to

To build the "not equal to" criteria, use the "<>" logical operator.

When a value, either text or number, is hardcoded in the criteria, remember to surround the entire construction with double quotes.

For example, to sum the amounts with shipment other than 3 days, the formula goes as follows:

=SUMIF(C2:C10, "<>3", B2:B10)

To find a total of all the items except Apples, the formula is:

=SUMIF(A2:A10, "<>apples", B2:B10)

When the criterion is in another cell, concatenate the "not equal to" operator and a cell reference like this:

=SUMIF(A2:A10, "<>"&F1, B2:B10)
SUM IF not equal to

SUM IF blank

This example shows how to sum cells in one column if a corresponding cell in another column is blank. There are two formulas to fulfill the task. Which one to use depends on your interpretation of a "blank cell".

If "blank" means cells that contain absolutely nothing (no formula, no zero-length string returned by some other function), then use "=" for criteria. For example:

=SUMIF(B2:B10, "=", C2:D10)

If "blank" includes empty strings (for example, cells with a formula like =""), then use "" for criteria:

=SUMIF(B2:B10, "", C2:D10)

Both formulas return a total of sales for undefined regions, i.e. where a cell in column B is blank:
SUM IF blank

SUM IF not blank

To make "if cell is not blank then sum" kind of formula, use "<>" as the criteria. This will add up all cells that contain anything in them, including zero-length strings.

For instance, here's how you can sum sales for all the regions, i.e. where column B is not blank:

=SUMIF(B2:B10, "<>", C2:D10)
SUM IF not blank

Excel SUMIF with text criteria

When adding up numbers in one column based on text values in another column, it's important to differentiate between exact and partial match.

Criteria Formula Example Description
Sum if equal to Exact match:
=SUMIF(A2:A8, "bananas", C2:C8)
Sum values in cells C2:C8 if a cell in column A in the same row contains exactly the word "bananas" and no other words or characters. Cells containing "green bananas", "bananas green", or "bananas!" are not included.
Sum if cell contains Partial match:
=SUMIF(A2:A8, "*bananas*", C2:C8)
Sum values in cells C2:C8 if a corresponding cell in column A contains the word "bananas", alone or in combination with any other words. Cells containing "green bananas", "bananas green", or "bananas!" are summed.
Sum if not equal to Exact match:
=SUMIF(A2:A8, "<>bananas", C2:C8)
Sum values in cells C2:C8 if a cell in column A contains any value other than "bananas". If a cell contains "bananas" together with some other words or characters like "yellow bananas" or "bananas yellow", such cells are summed.
Sum if cell does not contain Partial match:
=SUMIF(A2:A8, "<>*bananas*", C2:C8)
Sum values in cells C2:C8 if a cell in column A does not contain the word "bananas", alone or in combination with any other words. Cells containing "yellow bananas" or "bananas yellow" are not summed.

For real-life formula examples, please check out Sum if equal to and Sum if not equal to.

In the next section, we'll take a closer look at SUMIF formulas with partial match.

SUMIF formulas with wildcard characters

To conditionally sum cells by partial match, include one of the following wildcard characters in your criteria:

  • Question mark (?) to match any single character in a specific position.
  • Asterisk (*) to match any number of characters.

Example 1. Sum values based on partial match

Suppose you wish to total sales for all northern regions, including North, North-East, and North-West. To have it done, put an asterisk right after the word "north":

=SUMIF(B2:B10, "north*", C2:D10)

An asterisk on both sides will also work:

=SUMIF(B2:B10, "*north*", C2:D10)

Alternatively, you can type the region of interest in a predefined cell (F1), and then concatenate a cell reference and a wildcard character enclosed in quotes:

=SUMIF(B2:B10, F1&"*", C2:D10)


=SUMIF(B2:B10, "*"&F1&"*", C2:D10)
SUMIF wildcard formula

Example 2. Sum if cell contains * or ?

To match a literal question mark or asterisk, place a tilde (~) before the character, e.g. "~?" or "~*".

For example, to sum sales for the regions marked with *, use "*~*" for criteria. In this case, the first asterisk is a wildcard and the second one is a literal asterisk character:

=SUMIF(B2:B10, "*~*", C2:D10)

If the criteria (* in our case) is entered in a separate cell, then concatenate a tilde and the cell reference, like this:

=SUMIF(B2:B10, "*"&"~"&F1, C2:D10)
SUMIF formula with an asterisk as criteria

Example 3. Sum if another cell contains text

If your dataset contains various data types and you only want to sum cells corresponding to text values, the following SUMIF formulas will come in handy.

To add up values in cells C2:C8 if a cell in column A contains any text character(s):

=SUMIF(A2:A8,"?*", C2:C8)

To sum values in C2:C8 if a cell in column A contains any text value, including zero length strings:

=SUMIF(A2:A8,"*", C2:C8)

Both of the above formulas ignore non-text values such as numbers, dates, errors, and Booleans.

How to use Excel SUMIF with dates

Using dates as SUMIF criteria is very much like using numbers. The most important thing is to supply a date in the format that Excel understands. If you are not sure which date format is supported and which is not, the DATE function can be a solution.

Assuming you are looking to sum sales for the items delivered before 10-Sep-2020, the criteria can be expressed in this way:

=SUMIF(C2:C10, "<9/10/2020", B2:B10)


=SUMIF(C2:C10, "<"&DATE(2020,9,10), B2:B10)


=SUMIF(C2:C10, "<"&F1, B2:B10)

Where F1 is the target date.
SUMIF using dates as criteria

To sum cells based on today's date, include the TODAY function in your criteria. For example, that's how you calculate a total of sales with a delivery date prior to today:

=SUMIF(C2:C10, "<"&TODAY(), B2:B10)
Sum cells based on today's date

To sum within a date range, you need to define a smaller and larger date separately. This can be done with the help of the SUMIFS function that supports multiple criteria.

For example, to sum values in column B if a date in column C is between two dates, this is the formula to use:

=SUMIFS(B2:B10, C2:C10, ">="&F1, C2:C10, "<="&G1)

Where B2:B10 is the sum range, C2:C10 is the list of dates to check, F1 is the start date and G1 is the end date.
SUMIF between two dates

More formula examples can be found in SUMIFS with date range as criteria.

How to do SUMIF from another sheet

To conditionally sum data from a different sheet, provide external references for the SUMIF arguments. The easiest way is to start typing a formula, switch to another worksheet and select ranges using the mouse. Excel will insert all the references automatically, without you having to worry about the correct syntax.

For instance, the below formula will add up values in C2:C10 on the Data sheet based on the criteria in B3 on Sheet1:

=SUMIF(Data!B2:B10, B3, Data!C2:C10)
SUMIF from another sheet

How to correctly use cell references in SUMIF criteria

To create a flexible formula, you normally insert all variable parameters in predefined cells instead of "hardcoding" them. With Excel SUMIF, that might be a bit of a challenge.

In the simplest case when summing "if equal to", you simply use a cell reference for criteria. For example:

=SUMIF(C2:C10, F1, B2:B10)

But when a cell reference is used together with a logical operator, the criteria should be provided in the form of a string. So, you use the double quotes ("") to start a text string and ampersand (&) to concatenate and finish the string off. For example:

=SUMIF(C2:C10, ">"&F7, B2:B10)

Please note that the comparison operators are enclosed in quotation marks while the cell references are not.
Correct use of cell references in SUMIF criteria

Why is my SUMIF formula not working?

There could be several reasons why Excel SUMIF is not working for you. Sometimes, your formula does not return what you expect only because the data type in a cell or in some argument isn't suited for the SUMIF function. Below is a list of important things to check.

1. SUMIF supports only one condition

The syntax of the SUMIF function has room for only one condition. To sum with multiple criteria, either use the SUMIFS function (adds up cells that meet all the conditions) or build a SUMIF formula with multiple OR criteria (sums cells that meet any of the conditions).

2. Range and sum_range should be of the same size

For a SUMIF formula to work correctly, the range and sum_range argument should have the same dimensions, otherwise you may get misleading results. The point is that Microsoft Excel does not rely on the user's ability to provide matching ranges, and to avoid possible inconsistency issues, it determines the sum range automatically in this way:

Sum_range defines only the upper left cell of the range that will be summed, the remaining area is determined by the size and shape of the range argument.

Given the above, the below formula will actually sum cells in C2:C10 and not in C2:D10. Why? Because range consists of 1 column and 9 rows, and so does sum_range.

=SUMIF(B2:B10, "north", C2:D10)

In older Excel versions, unequally sized ranges can cause lots of problems. In modern Excel, complex SUMIF formulas where sum_range has less rows and/or columns than range are also capricious. That is why it's a good practice to always define the same number of rows and columns for these two arguments.

3. Range and sum_range should be ranges, not arrays

Though SUMIF can process an array constant in criteria like shown in this example, it does not support arrays in range and sum_range. These two arguments can only be cell ranges.

5. SUMIF criteria syntax

For criteria, the SUMIF function allows using different data types including text, numbers, dates, cell references, logical operators (>, <, =, <>), wildcard characters (?, *, ~) and other functions. The syntax of such criteria is quite specific.

If the criteria argument includes a text value, wildcard character or logical operator followed by text, number or date, enclose the whole criteria in quotation marks. For example:

=SUMIF(B2:B10, "north*", C2:D10)

=SUMIF(C2:D10, ">100")

=SUMIF(B2:B10, "<>north", C2:D10)

=SUMIF(C2:C10, "<=9/10/2020", B2:B10)

When a logical operator is followed by a cell reference or another function, the criteria should be provided in the form of a string. So, you use an ampersand (&) to concatenate a logical operator and a reference or function. For example:

=SUMIF(B2:B10, ">"&F1)

=SUMIF(C2:D10, "<="&TODAY(), B2:B10)

4. SUMIF from another workbook not working

As with many Excel functions, SUMIF can refer to other sheets and workbooks, provided they are currently open.

For example, this formula will work fine as long as Book1 is open:


And it will stop working as soon as Book1 is closed. This happens because the referenced ranges in closed workbooks get de-referenced into arrays. And since arrays are not supported in the range and sum_range arguments, SUMIF throws a #VALUE! error.

6. SUMIF does not recognize text case

By design, SUMIF in Excel is not case-sensitive, meaning it treats uppercase and lowercase letters as the same characters. To make a case-sensitive SUMIF formula, use the SUMPRODUCT function together with EXACT.

That's how to use SUMIF in Excel. Hopefully, our formula examples have given you some good insights. As always, I thank you for reading and hope to see you on our blog next week!

    Hi I am in the process of completing MOS 201 Objective 3.1. Not sure if you are familiar with the book but I cannot seem to figure out this sub objective. I tried different ways and I had gotten the answers but I am still getting (DiV/0) which should not be.

    On the Gross Margin worksheet, add formulas to the Gross Margin field (H7:H14) that calculate the gross margin by subtracting Cost from Retail and then dividing by Cost. To avoid #DIV/0! (division by 0) errors, wrap the calculation inside an IF function that returns the gross margin if Cost is not 0, or the message Cost is 0! otherwise.

    The value in the N could be different for each row. So in this example if the value for G26 is 1000 and the value for N26 is 4 then it would only add 250

    The next row could have a value of 400 in the G column and a 2 in the N column and it would add 200.

    Hi, I am currently using the "SUMIF in combination with the TODAY()". I have a problem with the weekends. If I use the "<"&Today(), unfortunately on the 06.01.2020 no value is provided. Is there a way how i can exclude the weekends in the formula and still obtain the values? I wish to avoid changing the formula manually. I rather have a formula which I can drag and obtain the correct values. Thanking you in advance for your help.

    hi i dont know if this is the right place to ask but. i have some columns that has either 1 or 0 in them and i need to add up the 1 up to the first 0 and no further.problem is there may be hundreds of 0 in the same column. and the same for 1. so my question is how can i add up all the 1 up to the first 0 and nothing else. ive been doing it manually but it is annoying plus the chance for error is bigger.

  35. DB says:

    I'm trying to develop a mileage tracking sheet for both personal and business entries. Column A is the odometer when I arrive at a certain location. Column B will have a "Y" if the mileage is personal in that row. Column C is the total miles driven since the last stop if it is for business, no "Y" in column B for that row. Column D is the total miles driven since the last stop if it is for personal, "Y" in the B column for that row. Cell H2 contains a running total of business miles for the curent month. Cell H4 contains a running total of personal miles for the current month. I can't figure out how to subtract, for example, cell A5 from cell A6 using the SUMIF or SUMIFS function. I think I can write a formula for a running total for personal and business miles driven, but if you can suggest a formula I would appreciate it. Do I need to write a formula or include in the formula where to place the total miles driven for any certain row in either column C or D? Meaning for business miles driven on a single drive, no "Y" in column B for that row, and place that number in column C for that row and leave column D for that row blank. As you can tell, I'm struggling with these formulas. Thank you in advance for your help. DB

  36. G says:

    Substantially important point below, don't think I've seen this nuance pointed out anywhere else!

    "The point is that Microsoft Excel does not rely on the user's ability to provide matching range and sum_range parameters, so to avoid possible inconsistency issues and prevent errors, it determines the sum range on its own in the following way. It takes the top left cell in the sum_range argument as the beginning cell (C2 in our Excel SUMIF example), and then includes as many columns and rows as contained in the range argument (in our case, it's 1 column x 7 rows, i.e. C2:C8)."

  37. Peter says:

    So I'm running into some issues with a compound SUMIF formula.


    The main issue is that there are missing values for the lines that have a 0 in the "count" column as the information is being pulled from another table where "Count" is compiled using a COUNTIF formula. This being the case, these rows have the #N/A value plugged in if the count column shows a 0 which prevents the data from calculating. Because of this, I am hoping someone may be able to help me out and suggest a way for me to add up the dollar values for any dates that appear in a column that is between Days 1 and 2.

    Essentially I need it to do the following:

    1. Check columns G for any dates within a 1week timeframe
    2. add up the values that have a quantity of 1 or more.

    does anyone have any suggestions?

      Where the data is structured as your sample and is in F36:F49,D36:D49 and E36:E49 enter the "Part" in I36 and the "Step" in I37, then in I38 enter the formula:
      You can then enter the step and part you're interested in seeing in their respective cells and the Good will be displayed in I38.
      You'll probably want to enter their labels in H36, H37 and H38.

  56. Sue says:

    My spreadsheet has one cell (A1) that contains the "pot" of money. One column (cell A2) is for amounts drawn against it with another column (C2) having a balance. So the formula in C2 is =SUM(A1-A2).

    Another column is what was “actually spent”, so if I put a value in that one, I would like to have C2 deduct that instead of the original amount drawn. This column will only have a value if what was actually spent is more or less than original amount.

    I'm looking for a formula something like "=SUM(A1-A2) unless B2 has a value then use that instead of A2”?

The green will change based on a column that will describe if this home is open to build or already being built.

If I were to select specific contract name for 2014, it'll give me how much was made on that contract in 2014. Also if I was to select all years and all contracts, it'll give me an overall total.

    Would anyone happen to know how I would go about doing that please??

    Is it possible to add a mathematical condition in Sumif formula. Please refer below example


    Can I add a condition in Sumif such that add only those numbers which are divisible by 3.

    • Pablo says:

      One option is to insert a new column to calculate which values are divisible by 3 and use it as the criteria range for the SUMIFS formula.
      =MOD(cell,3) equal to zero means that the cell value is divisible by 3.
      Use the new column as the criteria range and 0 as the criteria in the SUMIFS formula to add the cells that are divisible by 3. Hope this helps!

    I am trying to autosum a total column in an invoice table spreadsheet in which it includes the data and the price visited per site. I have written a formula in the date column like such: =IF([@Date]"",167, 0). Hence if there is a date entered it will auto populate 167 in the Price column in the table, if it does not have a date inserted it just '$ - ". But when I try to SUM or IFSUM (=SUMIF([Date], "", [Price]) formulas it rather leaves a "$ - "or has the #### error. I have tried SUMPRODUCT, SUM, SUMIF, and SUMIFS formulas but cannot get it to total sum the columns that have a price compared to not having anything. Please help!

    I am trying to use the sumif function to sum a series of job #'s that are specific to salespeople. I am exporting this list out of our accounting software & I noticed that the job #'s are actually labeled as "text" in my worksheet. What would my criteria be for the following:

    Job Billed to Date

    2074-14 4,306.11
    2999-17 0.00
    4000-17 0.00

    5018-16 0.00
    5024-15 57,166.00
    5999-17 0.00

    Column "A" is the job#, column "B" is the billed amount. I am trying to sum the sales for column "A", which each range represents a salesperson. Ex., series 2000-2999 jobs = Bob, series 4000-4999 = Joe & series 5000-5999 = Marie.

    Here is the formula that I am trying to use, but it is not working. Any ideas? Thanks

    =SUMIF('Sep 16'!A2:A1048576,">2000,<2999-99",'Sep 16'!B2:B1048576)

    • tohan says:

      You could do:
      =SUMIF('Sep 16'!A2:A1048576,"2*",'Sep 16'!B2:B1048576) to sum up all job# starting with 2 for instance (repeat accordingly for 3, 4 and 5s or build up a formula like so: C2&"*" for your criteria)

    hi, just suppose we have 2 list. in first we have customers account and pending amount. in second list of some customers with account who have paid partial of full amount. then how to find net amount? if list are large and we cant sort them..

  75. tohan says:

    Great article! I thought I knew SUMIF but I learnt a lot of things there.

    Similarly to sum-range indicating only the upperleft-most cell, it would seem that range actually indicates only the upperright-most cell is that correct ?

    I stumbled upon a spreadsheet that I couldn't understand how, was giving the correct result, basically instead of =SUMIF($B$2:$B$10,$H$2:$H$10,$D$2:$D:$10) it read =SUMIF($A$2:$B$10,$H$2:$H$10,$C$2:$C:$10)
    I now understand the shift to column C in 'sum_range' as 'range' was 2 columns wide, but I wanted to confirm the behavior of 'range'.

    Hi, Great blog and I'm hoping you can help?

    I have a large sheet called 'Errors' (11 columns) and in Column A I have employee names who have recorded till errors over 2016, so their names appear multiple times down the list and the value of the error short/over appears in Column J.

    In a separate tab I have the full list of employee names, so for example A1 is Adam. In B1 I'm trying to create a formula that will return all shortages created by Adam in 2016 by looking at the other sheet (A1:K4000. I've been trying something like =VLOOKUP(A1,ErrorsA1:K4000,10,"<0) but it returns a #value error.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This blog is phenomenal. I am stumped. I have an account number for my customers is column A and Column B lists the sale amount. I would like to have column c aggregate the sales for each customer. Some customers have 1 sale each month some have 10. How do I get a running total for customers in column c

  78. Sha says:

    What a great Blog!

    Im not great at excel but your explanations are so simple and easy to understand!!!

    I do have a question though :-p I am currently using you're SUMIF formula for specific text.

    =SUMIF('Main Tracker'!G7:G30,"*GBCDF*",'Main Tracker'!T7:T30)

    I was wondering can you also add a date range to that formula so that it totals up everything with "GBCDF" within a certain date range.

    Here is my questions with the example

    I have in F2 = "Apples/Bananas"
    I need my formula to be =sumif(A2:A8,F2,C2:C8)

    In F2 I can have whatever sign or space that make this formula works.
    I need this formula to add Apples and Bananas.

    Any thought or help ?

    Thank you in advance

    I can't seem to get this to work. Is this formula legal or possible?

    =SUMIF('ITSC-0101S-01:ITSC-0909S-01'!E3, B3, 'ITSC-0101S-01:ITSC-0909S-01'!B3)

    What is supposed to do is look at cell E3 across multiple sheets and IF it matches cell B3 on the formula sheet then add the corresponding cell B3s together.

    I want to do a monthly ytd total on a spreadsheet with the months in columns. I have a ytd column and am trying to put in the sumif forumla taking the months Jan - Dec and giving them a value of 1 - 12. I then, in the cell immediately above my formula, have the current month's value. My sumif function is =Sumif(h5:s5,"<=v8",h9:s9) my calculation would be then that it should add all of the columns numbers 1 - 11 as that is the number displaying in v8 and not add the number in the 12 column. However it is adding it. What am I missing?

  83. Iwan says:


    Thanks for this wonderful step-by-step teaching about Excel. I find it very useful.

    I have a problem regarding SUMIF issue. Let me explain.

    =SUMIF(Inc!$M$1:$M$1000, ">=1/2/16", Inc!$J$1:$J$1000)- SUMIF(Inc!$M$1:$M955, ">=7/2/16", Inc!$J$1:$J$1000)

    How can I change ">=1/2/16" and ">=7/2/16" to a cell number like B2 or C3 that contains the particular date like 1/2/16. So, I have made 2 cells that have 1/2/16, and the other one is 7/2/16. Instead of having to input the date manually in the formula, I want to input the cell number that already has the date information in it so I can just copy it down.
