Formula Error #Value!

I have been lumped with a spreadsheet to up keep and I am having trouble with a few of the formulas.

The error is in workbook 'Daily Schedule'

In cells AF4 - AL4, the formula is working however when I click into it the #Value! appears in the cell. This is the formula below:
=SUM(('Daily Schedule'!$F$7:$F$26=AF1)*('Daily Schedule'!$G$7:$G$26="FAULT")*('Daily Schedule'!$K$7:$K$26<>0))
Now it is also only looking down to row 26 and when I try and change it to 1000 it shows the Error #Value! again.

The same problem is happening with the formula in the next row as well. This is the formula below:
=SUM(('Daily Schedule'!$F$7:$F$26=AF1)*('Daily Schedule'!$G$7:$G$26="FAULT")*'Daily Schedule'!$AA$7:$AA$26)

I am really not sure what I am doing wrong. I have attached the spreadsheet for you to have a look at.

Hello SerinaStar,

the formula is an Array formula and needs to be confirmed with Ctrl-Shift-Enter. Select a cell with the error, hit F2 to edit the formula and then Ctrl-Shift-Enter without changing anything.

cheers, teylyn

Oh ok I see now.
Is this the right way to calculate this cells or is there a better option. I was hoping that it would just automatically do it.
