    SumIf Formula Not Adhering to Criteria

    Hello all and thank you to anyone and everyone that can help me out.

    I have a simple SUMIF formula, but the result seemingly returns the sum amount that includes a number that does not meet the criteria in the formula.

    =SUMIF($A$1:$H$18,J20,$H$1:$H$18)

    Cell J20 is "OT" but the formula seems to include the sum amount only for [H7(Reg):H8(OT)] yet excludes all others... I'm confused on the reasoning???

    Thanks again for any help you can give me

    The formula works correctly. There are hidden rows!

    With
    =SUMIF($A$1:$H$18,J20,$H$1:$H$18)
    You are using 2 ranges different in size: one has 8 columns but other has 1 column only.
    SUMIF works with single range (BOTH vertical OR horizontal range)

    so, try:

    =SUMIF($A$1:$A$18,J20,$H$1:$H$18)

    Thank you checking it out,
    The original spreadsheet is a template that is going to include those currently for the time being; although, the hidden rows have no values within them which I assume should not make any difference.

    Re: SumIf Formula Not Adhering to Criteria

    =SUMIF($A$1:$A$18,J19,$H$1:$H$18)

    returns $1,676.80

    Why do you expect a different answer, when that is the correct answer? You are either mistaken, or have failed to tell us something!!

    Just to point out to you again, this is from the the original file that you provided.
    There are hidden rows (13-18) and there is value in one cell which is resulted from another formula.

    There is no value in the hidden rows that makes a difference - both Reg values are 0.
