# #value! in excel file- Cant find the cause

on
On formula tab  starting at g131, I have a formula to complete the sum product. the formula works fine for some cells (G132, G133,G139,etc...) but not in g134-138. I believe the dimensions for the formulas are the same and i cant seem to find the root cause of the error.

also is there a way to complete using a named range for all the month transactions (i.e. create a range for Nov and use in each of the formulas

Your ranges are not compatible. They have to be the same size. For example, this formula in G134:

=SUMPRODUCT((Engineer=A\$131)*Utilization!D\$45:AG\$65)

has two arrays that are not the same size. Engineer is 17 rows and Utilization!D\$45:AG\$65 is 21 rows. They have to be the same size.

The array arguments must have the same dimensions. If they do not, SUMPRODUCT returns the #VALUE! error value.

Here is a formula that should produce better results in cell G134:

=SUM((Engineer=A\$131)*IF(ISNUMBER(Utilization!C\$47:F\$63),Utilization!C\$47:F\$63,0))

Enter as an array formula by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

Sorry about that. I was messing around with the name range of engineer and reduced the number of rows. I reset the number of rows to equal each other and it still returns the error. all the other rows have the same number of rows.

You could keep that as a SUMPRODUCT, Kevin, like this

=SUMPRODUCT((Engineer=A\$131)*ISNUMBER(Utilization!C\$47:F\$63),Utilization!C\$47:F\$63)
