From: Seanie on 5 Mar 2010 11:49 How could I achieve the following via formula I want to add up all the instances that certain numbers appear in Col B with their corresponding values in COL D e.g. if 1 or 3 or 6 or 20 or 26 or 30 or 55 appears in Row1 then add the value that appears in Row1 COL D and do this for every row in sheet where a values exist in COL B. I know how I could do it if I was looking for only 1 instance in ColB, but the multi instances has me guessing Thanks
From: Fred Smith on 5 Mar 2010 12:09 You want Sumif, as in: =sumif(B:B,1,D:D) Regards, Fred "Seanie" <seanryanie (a)yahoo.co.uk> wrote in message news:1bc12ed6-cdb2-4f38-9125-4127527d2a5b (a)v20g2000yqv.googlegroups.com...> How could I achieve the following via formula > > I want to add up all the instances that certain numbers appear in Col > B with their corresponding values in COL D e.g. if 1 or 3 or 6 or 20 > or 26 or 30 or 55 appears in Row1 then add the value that appears in > Row1 COL D and do this for every row in sheet where a values exist in > COL B. > > I know how I could do it if I was looking for only 1 instance in ColB, > but the multi instances has me guessing > > Thanks
From: Seanie on 5 Mar 2010 14:02 Thanks, that would be ideal if I could do =SUMIF(B:B,1,2,3,4,5,D:D), but it only takes 1 criteria
From: JLatham on 5 Mar 2010 15:48 If the ,1,2,3,4,5 part means sum them if value in B equals any one of those 5 values, then simply write a longish formula for all cases: =SUMIF(B:B,1,D:D)+SUMIF(B:B,2,D:D)+SUMIF(B:B,3,D:D)+SUMIF(B:B,4,D:D)+SUMIF(B:B,5,D:D) You only have to do it once.

Is there any limit to the 'longish' formula? Something tells me 8 is the limit |
