    SUMIF Criteria range to be taken automatically

    Dear All,

    Actually SUMIF function will be like SUMIF(Range, Criteria, SUM Range)

    SO here I want range (in the sumif function) to be taken automatically rather than me selecting the particular range based on header

    Ex: I'm using formula =SUMIF(Production!$A$37:$AG$45,Export!A2,Production!$BL$38:$BL$45) where as it is returning zero even there is a value for that particular item

    Criteria range and Sum range must have same length. Numbers may be in text format.

    Re: SUMIF Criteria range to be taken automatically

    Sorry I think I even considered Header also. After seeing your comment I've changed it to $A$38 where it is $A$37 but still ans is zero. I'm still not getting the accurate answer. Request you to please clarrify.

    Try ..

    =SUMIF(Production!$B$38:$B$45,Export!A2,Production!$BL$38:$BL$45)

    SO here I want range (in the sumif function) to be taken automatically rather than me selecting the particular range based on header
    Not sure what you mean by the above

    Re: SUMIF Criteria range to be taken automatically

    Here what you are doing is, you are selecting the particular row (of Downrod i.e., B:B) where as I'm selecting all the rows (i.e., from A:AG) also so that I can use only one formula for populating the data in this present sheet

    Can we do like that. Please confirm.

    Re: SUMIF Criteria range to be taken automatically

    try

    =SUM(IF(Production!$A$38:$AG$45=Export!A2,Production!$BL$38:$BL$45))

    Enter with Ctrl+Shift+Enter

    You need to remove #N/A errors by putting IFERROR additions around your formulae for "Closing Stock"

    =IFERROR(your formula,"")

    Just curious - what advantage does that have over the equivalent SUMIF construction?

    Re: SUMIF Criteria range to be taken automatically

    @XOR LX

    SUMIF (for me) did not work over a range i.e range which was not single column or single row: maybe I was doing something wrong?

    Original SUMIF was

    =SUMIF(Production!$A$38:$AG$45,Export!A2,Production!$BL$38:$BL$45))

    @ Iaansesu

    The #N/A are displaying because you have many #N/As in the data range.

    I removed all the #N/A errors and retrieved the value 1000.

    Apologies. You're perfectly correct. I didn't read the question properly.
