    formula copied or updated does now work! (sum if in this case)

    Hi Guys I have a really strange problem on excel2010

    I have the following formula for instance in cell F26
    =SUM(IF($C$8:$C$16=$C26,(((F$8:F$16)*($E$8:$E$16)*8*F$4)),0))

    which returns the right numeric value

    when I copy this formula to the cell F27 it works great. Then I realized that in formula I actually wanted to change the F$4 to F4 now the formula does not return any result. IT returns the infamous #VALUE!

    If I go back to F26 and also change the formula I get #VALUE!

    How is this possible ??? I'm not changing anything in the calculation

    Please help!

    thanks joe

    Hi,

    This formula looks like it needs to be array-entered: are you sure that you are confirming it as an array formula after each time that you edit it? Do you know how to do this?

    That's an array formula that needs to be entered ina special way...

    When you edit the formula, press CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER...Not just enter.

    AMAZING!!!! CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER solved the issue. I was actually using a workbook provided to me by a colleague and had to make an ammendment.

    Thanks to both!

    FYI: I joined this forum in 2004 and only now posted because generally I've found my solution from other guys.

    Hope this helps someone also

    once again tahnks!
