    Sumifs/Countifs not working across linked workbooks

    Hi all,

    I am having an issue with both sumifs and countifs not working across linked workbooks if they are closed. I know that there is an issue in this aspect and have managed to solve my countif and sumif formulas with sum(if( / count(if( or sumproduct(1*( workarounds but, I am not sure how to do it for multiple criteria (or if it can even be done).

    Any help would be great.

    Hi,

    Either of the alternatives should work with multiple criteria. What are the formulas that you are trying to alter?

    Attach a sample workbook (not image).

    Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate.

    Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Hi,

    thanks for the reply, sorry its slightly confusing for me as I am used to wording the formula differently depending on if there is an ifs at the end!

    So the formulas I have are: -

    countif("linked spreadsheet range",cell reference)-countifs("linked spreadsheet range",condition1,"linked spreadsheet range","*part text search*"

    sumif("linked spreadsheet range",cell reference,"linked spreadsheet range")-sumifs("linked spreadsheet range","linked spreadsheet range",cell reference,"linked spreadsheet range","*part text search*"

    Re: Sumifs/Countifs not working across linked workbooks

    I think the first one would be
    =SUMPRODUCT(--("linked spreadsheet range"=cell reference))-SUMPRODUCT(("linked spreadsheet range"=condition1)*(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("part text search","linked spreadsheet range"))))
    and the second would be
    =SUMPRODUCT(--("linked spreadsheet range"=cell reference),"linked spreadsheet number range")-SUMPRODUCT(("linked spreadsheet range"=condition1)*(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("part text search","linked spreadsheet range"))),"linked spreadsheet number range")
