    Sumproduct with multiple criteria and ignoring text values

    Hello all, I've looked through a number of posts but am still having an issue.

    Using Excel 2010, I am trying to do a Sumproduct formula with two criteria, one of which needs to ignore text values. Here is the set up:

    Column A Column B Column C
    (Side) (Qty) (Price)
    Buy 5,512 15.67
    Sell 119,428 null
    Buy 24,209 45.77
    Sell 20,054 12.25
    ...

    I'm trying to find the sumproduct of Qty * Price if the side equals "Buy" (or "Sell") but ignoring the "null" value in column C. The formula I have is =SUMPRODUCT(--($A$2:$A$20="Buy")*IF(ISNUMBER($C$2:$C$20),--($B$2:$B$20*$C$2:$C$20)))

    The result in the cell is 0, but if I open the Insert Function dialog box, I see the correct value being returned. Does anyone know why this may be, or have a different way of going about this?

    Thanks for the help!

    Try

    =SUMPRODUCT(--($A$2:$A$20="Buy"),$B$2:$B$20,$C$2:$C$20)

    Maybe this...

    =SUMPRODUCT(--ISNUMBER(MATCH(A2:A5,{"Buy","Sell"},0)),B2:B5,C2:C5)

    Thanks Jonmo and Tony for the quick responses! I had more luck with Jonmo's, but I'll play around with the Match formula to see if I can get it another way.

    Much appreciated!

    That was a bit confusing the way you wrote that.
    I think Tony interpraited that to mean you wanted to count both Buy and Sell in a single formula
    But I think you meant you intended to have 2 seperate formulas, one for Buy and one for Sell

    Re: Sumproduct with multiple criteria and ignoring text values

    I may have misunderstood what you wanted.

    I interpreted this...

    if the side equals "Buy" (or "Sell")
    ...to be a multiple condition where it looks like you want 1 formula for Buy and another formula for Sell.

    In that case Jonmo's suggestion is the way to go.
