What would the SUMIFS version of this formula look like?

Thanks,
John
=SUMPRODUCT((AllTails=$C6)*(RoundOpenDates=today)*AllDeferrals*AllAll)

Hello John,

SUMIFS only allows you to sum one range based on conditions in other ranges. Your SUMPRODUCT is multiplying two ranges by each other so SUMIFS can't do that - you might be best advised to stick with SUMPRODUCT.

To use SUMIFS you'd need to have another column, e.g. Products, where you multiply each row of AllDeferrals by ALLALL (I assume they are both column long ranges). then you could use SUMIFS

=SUMIFS(Products,AllTails,$C6,RoundOpenDates,today)

I assume that today is also a named range otherwise you need TODAY()

Hi Barry, thanks for posting. I get a 'Name is not valid error.' For what it's worth, here are the ranges defining the names:

AllTails  ='All Incidents'!$F$6:INDEX('All Incidents'!$F:$F,'All Incidents'!$C$1+5,1)
RoundOpenDates  ='All Incidents'!$BK$6:INDEX('All Incidents'!$BK:$BK,'All Incidents'!$C$1+5,1)
AllDeferrals  ='All Incidents'!$Q$6:INDEX('All Incidents'!$Q:$Q,'All Incidents'!$C$1+5,1)
AllAll  ='All Incidents'!$AE$6:INDEX('All Incidents'!$AE:$AE,'All Incidents'!$C$1+5,1)
WkStart  ='All Incidents'!$E$4
today  =ROUNDDOWN(WkStart,0)

[today] is on the sheet with the formulas. The other 5 are on a different sheet.

Thanks,
John

Hello John,

Yes, in the formula I suggested I used a new name Products - in order for that formula to work you will have to create that name additionally. Without seeing your data I can't tell where you have a blank column but if AZ column is blank, for instance, then in that column you could create a product of AllDeferrals and ALLAll by using this formula in AZ6

=Q6*AE6

copied all the way down

then Products needs to be defined in the same way as the other ranges, i.e.

Products  ='All Incidents'!$AZ$6:INDEX('All Incidents'!$AZ:$AZ,'All Incidents'!$C$1+5,1)

Now you can use the formula I suggested above, i.e.

=SUMIFS(Products,AllTails,$C6,RoundOpenDates,today)

If you don't want to use another column or you can't then I suggest you retain the original SUMPRODUCT formula because you can't simply convert that to SUMIFS because of the multiplication within it.

regards, barry
