    SUMIFS/COUNTIFS array function question (multiple criteria)

    Hi I have a simple question:

    I know how to use SUMIFS as an array but don't know how to make it work when I do not want to include certain values in the sum:

    EXAMPLE: How can I convert =SUMIFS($A:$A,$N:$N,{"*Criteria 1*","*Criteria 2*","*Criteria 3*"}) into something like this: SUMIFS($A:$A,$N:$N,{"<>"&"*Criteria 1*","<>"&"*Criteria 2*","<>"&"*Criteria 3*"}). The second formula does not work! How can I make it work for text?

    Also I want to sum something not equal to a cell that contains specific text or numbers:
    Another example is this: How to convert the statement below into a SUMIFS of A:A where N:N does NOT contain 1,2,3,4,5 etc...
    =SUMIFS($A:$A,$N:$N,{1,2,3,4,5,6}) - ????

    Thanks for your help

    AK

    Re: SUMIFS/COUNTIFS array function question (multiple criteria)

    Why is it necessary to express the group of criterion as an array?

    This works just as effectively.

    =SUMIFS(A:A,N:N,"<>"&1,N:N,"<>"&2,N:N,"<>"&3,N:N,"<>"&4,N:N,"<>"&5,N:N,"<>"&6)

    If you do require the use of a nested array, you may wish to use SUMPRODUCT instead.

    Re: SUMIFS/COUNTIFS array function question (multiple criteria)

    For the positive result, e.g. sum column A when N = any of 1,2,3,4,5,6 then you need to wrap a SUM function around the SUMIFS, i.e.

    =SUM(SUMIFS($A:$A,$N:$N,{1,2,3,4,5,6}))

    For excluding those values you could just subtract that amount from the SUM of column A, like this:

    =SUM($A:$A)-SUM(SUMIFS($A:$A,$N:$N,{1,2,3,4,5,6}))

    or you can explicitly exclude them as separate conditions like this:

    =SUMIFS($A:$A,$N:$N,"<>1",$N:$N,"<>2",$N:$N,"<>3",$N:$N,"<>4",$N:$N,"<>5",$N:$N,"<>6")

    Both of those approaches can be used with text values too

    Thank you so much!

    I totally had forgotten about wrapping everything with the SUM function! details, details...

    Have a good one!
