    Sum values that correspond to

    Hi there,

    I've been having some trouble with the following..

    I have something like:
    columns A B (sheet1)
    u 2
    v 1
    w 5
    x 3
    y 1
    z 2

    and in a seperate sheet:

    column D (sheet2)
    w
    z
    u

    I would like to get a sum of the values in sheet1!B:B that correspond to the values in sheet2!D:D (where only those in sheet1!A:A that match sheet2!D:D are sumed). In the above example I would like to get = 9.

    I had read that using something like the following would work but I just get the "#VALUE!" error...

    Does it matter that my actual sheet1!A:A and sheet2!D:D look more like "xyz, abc"?

    Thanks for your help,

    Geoff.

    Re: Sum values that correspond to

    Hi Mehmetcik,

    Thanks for your reply. I tried it but it's not quite what I'm looking for.

    I just need a formula in a single cell that sums the values in sheet1!B:B for which sheet1!A:A and sheet2!D:D are the same. In other words, I would like enter a formula in cell E2 (for example) that would result in the answer "9".

    I am making sense?

    Also I apologise for the title of this post (it was left incomplete accidentally)! I would have liked it to say "SUMIF + SUMPRODUCT? - Sum of B:B when A:A = D:D".

    Geoff.

    I don't know why you're getting a #VALUE error. I copied your formula and it worked fine.

    Re: Sum values that correspond to

    Maybe this

    in E1 and copy down

    =SUMPRODUCT(($A$1:$A$6=D1)*($B$1:$B$6))

    A
    B
    C
    D
    E
    1
    u
    2
    w
    5
    2
    v
    1
    z
    2
    3
    w
    5
    u
    2
    4
    x
    3
    5
    y
    1
    6
    z
    2


    or for Total

    =SUMPRODUCT(($A$1:$A$6={"w","z","u"})*($B$1:$B$6))

    Or

    =SUM(SUMIF(A1:A6,D1,B1:B6),SUMIF(A1:A6,D2,B1:B6),SUMIF(A1:A6,D3,B1:B6))

    Re: Sum values that correspond to

    Don't use the entire column D as the criteria reference. Use a smaller specific range like this:

    =SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(Sheet1!A:A,Sheet2!D2:D5,Sheet1!B:B))

    Re: Sum values that correspond to

    Thanks Zodeeak, Alkey and Tony Valko (again .

    I tried it again as Tony Valko suggested and sure enough, it worked fine. I don't know why I didn't think of that!
    Zodeeak, did it work for you as I had done it or as Tony Valko suggested?

    Cheers everyone,

    Geoff.
