I don't see any formulas in that sheet - can you give a specific formula that you believe is mis-calculating?

If you are using the formula from your question, i.e.

=SUMIF($D$31:$D$395,"="&D4,$AE$31:$AE$395)

then because D4 is blank that will sum all the AE column values where the corresponding cell in column D is blank

Sorry about that. Been busy I had copied and pasted it and I didnt know that the formulas would not show up here is the formulas.

The field is called vehicle:equavalent vehicle complete

So then the info we posted should help you build your equivalent Dsum() formula
Hi gigifarrow it looks like your SUMIF works fine, why do you think it is not working?
