Is it possible to have mutiple array formulas in a cell and have them sum?  If so, how would this be done?  I have  a woksheet that needs to add several numbers, which are determined by array formuals.

You'd probably want to use a different approach. Instead of this formula

You can use SUMPRODUCT like this

=SUMPRODUCT((DataSource!A3:A100=J1)*("AAA or Above"=DataSource!B3:B100),DataSource!C3:C100)

That will sum all the values in column C when the two criteria are met in columns A and B....or do you have other criteria too?

It would be helpful if you give sample data in a workbook.

Meanwhile here is an example of adding two array formulas

Actually, I am surprised to see this question as I deleted it and I had, at that time, not see any responses.  I solved and YES! you can add two arrays.  It works perfectly.
