Need SUMPRODUCT/ SUMIF formula to sum each cell once not dupe if text contains 2 criteria

    Need SUMPRODUCT/ SUMIF formula to sum each cell once not dupe if text contains 2 criteria

    Hi,

    I have created a SUMPRODUCT/ SUMIF formula with multiple criteria to return the number of impressions that correspond with adverts by a specific competitor which contain any of a range of text.

    =SUMPRODUCT(SUMIFS(Raw!F:F, Raw!A:A,"*"&A2&"*",Raw!$B:$B,"*"&Themes!$A$2:$A$28&"*"))/SUMIF( Raw!A:A,"*"&A2&"*", Raw!F:F)

    HOWEVER, this formula is counting impressions twice if two of the range of text are within 1 ad text cell. I need the formula to count the impression associated with the ad once if any of the range of texts are contained in it.

    Example:

    Advertiser: Adidas
    Ad: Buy online today
    Impressions: 3000

    Range of 'Themes': Buy, Today

    Returns: 6000 when I would need it to return 3000.

    I have tried translating to a ISNUMBER(SEARCH formula but failed so far - It must not be case sensitive either.

    Any help appreciated!

    Hi,

    You can use:
    =SUMPRODUCT(RAW!F:F,(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(A2,RAW!A:A)))*(COUNT(SEARCH(Themes!$A$2:$A$28,RAW!$B:$B))>0))/SUMIF( RAW!A:A,"*"&A2&"*", RAW!F:F)

    but I recommend you avoid referring to entire columns in such a formula, especially so if you repeat the formula a lot.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply but this is only returning 0 now which is incorrect.

    I have attached a sample data to show this.

    Thanks!

    You need to enter the formulae with Ctrl+Shift+Enter

    plus your formula in C20 refers to B20 not A20

    Thank you. Yes, I should have made that clear. Additionally, there is no need for SUMPRODUCT when SUM will achieve the same result.

    Thanks a lot for your help! It is working with SUMPRODUCT now but SUM does give an inflated number.

    Apologies, I was thinking of something else. You do indeed require SUMPRODUCT for this.

    Re: Need SUMPRODUCT/ SUMIF formula to sum each cell once not dupe if text contains 2 crite

    Hi,

    Apologies for opening this again but I am struggling to apply this formula to my original data. the formula is just counting all impressions where the first SEARCH criteria is true but ignoring the second.

    I have attached a small set, if anyone could help me understand why this is not working please?

    Thanks.

    It is I who must apologise I'm afraid. The formula I suggested does not work for this at all. I will do my best to rectify the situation.

    Perhaps you might be able to use a DSUM solution? I have attached an example workbook.
