    Conditional Sumif query ....

    I have a workbook with different worksheets for each month, and for each month I record costs for different categories of expenditure, with different clients.

    My summary sheet contains a table showing a breakdown - for each category - of the total cost, by month, using a formula like this in each cell:

    SUMIF(Jan!$B$2:$B$2998,"category",Jan!$G$2:$G$2998)

    Now I've gone multi currency and want an extra column in my monthly worksheets showing a currency indicator - $, , and - so that I can have three separate tables on my summary sheet, one for each currency.

    I've tried changing the formula to:

    IF(Jan!$Q$2:$Q$2998="$",SUMIF(Jan!$B$2:$B$2998,"category",Jan!$G$2:$G$2998),)

    ... but it doesnt work. That last example still includes values. Can someone please tell me where I am going wrong?

    Is there a simpler way of doing this that doesnt involve having 3 worksheets per month?

    Many thanks.

    I dont want to MULTIPLY the column values, I just want to add up the values (in column G) for each row where the chosen category name is in column B, and the selected currency sign is in column Q.

    SUMPRODUCT function name may confuse.

    NBVC's suggestion does exactly what you ask, although there is some multiplication involved in the calculation ultimately it will add the amounts in column G where your criteria in the other two columns are satisfied.

    Did you try it?

    I have now, and it works fine, was just put off by the name and the fact that Microsoft Help didnt point to it being used in that way. Thanks very much. Never come across that one before.
