In my spreadsheet, at R43:H43 I need to evaluate using sumproduct as follows:

Sum G4:G42 only if each corresponding formula such as F4-G4 = 0.

For example, if F16-G16 <> 0 do not include the value of G16 in my sum in R43:H43

the user just changed their mind (surprised?)
here's what I have that is not working

if the value in column H = the value in column F add the value in Column H

for example, if in H5 the value is $800 and in F5 the value is $801 do not sum.
if in H6 the value = $800 and in F6 the value is $800 sum
