In the attached excel spreadsheet on the “Results” tab in column B, I’m using a basic SUMIFS function.  You’ll see my “sum range” is set to column Q on my “PivotTable” worksheet tab.

I need to make this formula dynamic due to the fact my “Grand Total” range may not always been in column Q.  Any ideas?

Hello,

try in  B2

=INDEX(PivotTable!$A$4:$AZ$100,MATCH(Results!A2,PivotTable!$A$4:$A$100,0),MATCH("Grand Total",PivotTable!$4:$4,0))

copy down.

This will cater for a pivot table that has the column labels in row 4, can be up to 52 columns (column AZ) and goes down to row 100. Adjust if required.

It identifies the column by looking for the text "Grand Total"
