    Sumproduct with a dynamic range...is that the only way?

    Are using dynamic ranges the only way to make the rows in a SUMPRODUCT formula not change if rows are deleted/added on the data set? The reason why I ask is if I have a set of data where there is a column for each month, that would mean that I would need to create 12 dynamic ranges for each month. If I have say 2 or 3 data sets then I would need to create even more dynamic ranges. Is there an easier way that you guys use or are dynamic ranges the only option? I have attached an example. In the example I have set the SUMPRODUCT formula to go down to row 50. If I add or delete rows on the data set, the formula will change accordingly. Is there a way to keep the row anchored at row 50 without using dynamic ranges? The only thing I can think of would be to use the INDIRECT function inside of the SUMPRODUCT function. Are there any other alternatives?

    I used this and cot the exact same answers as you did?

    =SUMIFS(Data!C:C,Data!$A:$A,'Sumproduct Example'!$A6,Data!$B:$B,'Sumproduct Example'!$B$3)
    Note the use of absoluting in the ranges and cells
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)

    Would using the entire column as the range affect calc speed or does it not affect it as much when using a SUMIFS as opposed to using a SUMPRODUCT?

    With SUMIFS referencing entire columns should not be a problem

    Some reading on SUMIFS v SUMPRODUCT
