    SUMIFS criteria ">" a cell

    I have =SUMIFS(C:C,B:B,">E4") but the formula is not picking up E4 as a cell b/c its in talking marks.

    This version also fails. =SUMIFS(C:C,B:B,">"E4) It must be something really easy I'm missing

    How can I make it recognise this as a cell using the > symbol?

    Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    Since there is a single criteria SUMIF will do:

    =SUMIF(B:B,">"&E4,C:C)

    Tony, out of curiosity, is SUMIF() any more (or less) efficient than SUMIFS() in a situ like this?
