    Excel formula referencing another Excel workbook on Sharepoint/Onedrive

    Hi Guys.

    I have searched far and wide and scoured every nook and cranny, phoned all support lines and just gotten nowhere...

    I have the biggest favour to ask from someone who can assist.

    Please note I am not an Excel power user, I don't know all that much about Excel, I am only a Systems Admin and my client require this after I recently moved them over to Sharepoint/Onedrive.

    My client is using the =SUMIF formula to basically look for a certain "text" (I say text because the column is formatted as text so to insert 013, it displays as '013) in a column on a different workbook (both are in the same folder on the same Sharepoint address), uses that as a reference point to look up hours worked and then does the sum.

    The exact formula is: =SUMIF('my sharepoint address/Documents/Documents/Excel test/[HOURS CLOCK MACHINES MASTER WEEK 10 2019.xlsx]Sheet1'!$A$4:$A$186;$A9;'my sharepoint address/Documents/Documents/Excel test/[HOURS CLOCK MACHINES MASTER WEEK 10 2019.xlsx]Sheet1'!$D$4:$D$186)

    Problem is it comes back as #VALUE!.

    What can I do to correct this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I have searched far and wide and scoured every nook and cranny, phoned all support lines and just gotten nowhere...
    I am extremely surprised that nobody on any of those support lines has told you that you can't sum text. It's pretty basic, and you've even spotted the text issue yourself, but without making the connection.

    You are going to need to provide some sample data if you want any more specific help on this.
