Using Other Functions
SUMIF and SUMIFS
Although technically listed as a Math & Trig
function, SUMIF acts like a Logical function so
it’s listed here. Use SUMIF to add a group of cells
only if some condition is true. The syntax for the
SUMIF function is as follows:
The last argument in the SUMIF function is
optional, which means that if you want to
compare values in a range and add those same values
if some condition is true, you can leave this last
argument out. For example (using the worksheet
shown in Figure 3-15), suppose you want to add
all the values in the range E5:E17 that are over
$3 million. You could type =SUMIF(E5:E17,
“>3000000”).
=SUMIF(RangeToCheck,”Condition”,RangeToSum)
For example, consider the worksheet shown
in Figure 3-15. In order to compute the total
of all sales in the Eastern region, this formula is
entered in cell I6: =SUMIF(C5:C17,“Eastern”,E5:E17).
Basically, this formula looks at each cell in the
range C5:C17, and for the ones that contain
the word Eastern, it adds the value in the
corresponding cell in column E.
Tip
The Condition argument in the SUMIF
and SUMIFS functions must be entered
in quotations, as in “Eastern” and “>10”.
The SUMIFS function is similar to SUMIF, except
that it allows you to enter multiple conditions to
identify the cells you want to add. The syntax for
the SUMIFS function is as follows:
=SUMIFS(RangeToSum,RangeToCheck,“Condition”,
RangeToCheck2,“Condition2”,...and so on)
Looking at the worksheet in Figure 3-15,
suppose you want to add up all the sales over $1
million for the Eastern region only. In cell I12,
you could type =SUMIFS(E5:E17,C5:C17,“Eastern”,
E5:E17,“>1000000”).

Use SUMIF to add selected cells.
