    Basic Sum Formula in Google Sheets

    Hi All,

    I have a basic question. In the attached, you can see I have a basic 3 columns. The cells should be self-explanatory I hope. For the 3rd column, the blank cells represent "Unpaid".

    I would like a formula that says:
    a) The sum that John has "Unpaid"
    b) The sum that Mike has "Unpaid"

    Below is how it looks in Excel, but doesn't quite work in Sheets
    =SUMIFS(A1:A10,B1:B10,"Mike",C1:C10,"")

    =SUMIFS(A1:A10,B1:B10,"John",C1:C10,"")

    Can anyone help? Thanks.

    Please do not upload a picture of your file...rather, upload a sample of your workbook, showing what data you are working with, a few samples of your expected outcome is (manually entered is ok) and how you arrived at that. (exclude sensitive info). Pictures are pretty much impossible to edit, and no-one wants to re-type your data for you
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Re: Basic Sum Formula in Google Sheets

    Hi. Results of your formula are correct.

    I don't use Google sheets but as i know you can use SUMPRODUCT on these..

    In G3 and copy down..

    =SUMPRODUCT(($B$1:$B$6=E3)*($C$1:$C$6="")*($A$1:$A$6))
    Regards

    Re: Basic Sum Formula in Google Sheets

    you could also use the FILTER function
    =iferror(SUM(filter($A$1:$A$10,$B$1:$B$10=E3,$C$1:$C$10="")),0)

    if at first you don't succeed try doing it the way your wife told you to

    Hi Guys, I appreciate the help. I tried copying both your code to G3, and both returned sums of 0. Any ideas?

    that's what they should return for the data you have-nothing matches all the criteria :-)
