Using Conditional Formulas with Multiple Conditions: SUMIFS(), AVERAGEIFS(), and COUNTIFS()
Note the following in this syntax:
• sum_rangeis the range to sum.
• criteria_range1, criteria_range2, ... are one or more ranges in which to
evaluate the associated criteria.
• criteria1, criteria2, ... are one or more criteria in the form of a num-
ber, an expression, a cell reference, or text that define which cells
will be added. For example, they can be expressed as 32, "32", ">32",
"apples", or B4.
• Each cell in sum_rangeis summed only if all the corresponding cri-
teria specified are true for that cell.
• Cells in sum_rangethat contain TRUE evaluate to 1; cells in
sum_rangethat contain FALSE evaluate to 0.
• You can use the wildcard characters question mark (?) and asterisk
(*) in criteria. A question mark matches any single character; an as-
terisk matches any sequence of characters. If you want to find an ac-
tual question mark or asterisk, you need to type a tilde (~) before the
• Unlike the range and criteria arguments in SUMIF, the size and shape
of each criteria_rangeand sum_rangemust be the same.
and product. sum_rangeis the revenue in H11:H5011. The first criteria pair
consists of the regions in $C$11:$C$5011 being compared to the word Eastin
B$1. The second criteria pair consists of the divisions in $B$11:$B$5011 be-
ing compared to G854 in $A2. The formula in B2 is =SUMIFS($H$11:$H$5011,
$C$11:$C$5011,B$1,$B$11:$B$5011,$A2). You can copy this formula to B2:D6.
