# Excel - Getting some calculations with two worksheets

Posted on 2011-02-24

I have an excel workbook with two worksheets Data - raw data and Cover which is my cover sheet.

On the cover worksheet I want to have some values inserted by calculation on data in the data sheet.

1. I need a subtotal of the column COST when the column SEGMENT equals a specific value.  That column could have 10 values one being  "coscto" lets say I want cell D7 in cover to equal the sum of COST when SEGMENT = "costco"

2. I would also need D9 in COVER to equal the total number of deals when SEGMENT = "costco"

You can use SUMIF, i.e. in D7 try this formula

=SUMIF(SEGMENT,"costco",COST)

is the 2nd just a case of counting costco in SEGMENT column? If so use COUNTIF in D9

=COUNTIF(SEGMENT,"costco")

or does "deals" refer to a value in another column?

Hello pinkstomp,

I assumed that SEGMENT and COST were named ranges in your other sheet in which case their definitions will include the reference to Data worksheet. If you don't have named ranges then you need to refer to the ranges explicitly so if SEGMENT is Data sheet A2:A100 and COST is B2:B100 in that sheet the formulas would be:

=SUMIF(Data!A2:A100,"costco",Data!B2:B100)

and

=COUNTIF(Data!A2:A100,"costco")

If you want to define named ranges and you don't know how to then post back - which Excel version are you using?

this =COUNTIF(Data!A2:A100,"costco") works great is the a way to do OR

=COUNTIF(Data!A2:A100,"costco" or "walmart" or "kmart")

You can use this version

=SUM(COUNTIF(Data!A2:A100,{"costco","walmart","kmart"}))

Yes you can do the same there, replace "costco" with an "array constant" showing the text values to count (or sum) an add a SUM function like this

=SUM(SUMIF(Data!A2:A100,{"costco","walmart","kmart"},Data!B2:B100))

you could even list those on the sheet, e.g. if you had costco in H2, walmart in H3 and kmart in H4 you could use this formula for a combined sum

=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(Data!A2:A100,H2:H4,Data!B2:B100))
