Hi, I am using a DSUM formula to add the amounts from CompanyA if it matches Cell A1 and A2. How can I modify the formula so that it only adds the amounts if the amouts are positive ? Below is a sample. On the last row I have the formula that I am using.

    A                             C                D              E           F  
1CmbGrp                  Current            Want
2US                              
3            CmbGrp      CompanyA            
4                  100            
5            US      300            
6                  -200            
7                  300            
8            US      -100            
9Total Positive US $                  200            300
10                              
11

Could you post in a dummy workbook.

Have you considered SUMIFS (2007+) or SUMPRODUCT (2003&Earlier)

Attached example shows simple use of >0 for positive sum.

Here you go.. with 2 possibilities...

=DSUM(C3:D8,2,A1:B2)
With new criteria in B1:B2

=SUMIFS(D3:D8,C3:C8,A2,D3:D8,B2)
No need for criteria headings and not  such a rigid structure as DSUM

This looks like it will work. I will close this question after I try on my worksheet.

Thank you.

You can replace the cell reference to the greater than zero with ">0" (including quotation marks) in the SUMIFS

Do I replace  ">0" in the formula? If yes, how?

The formula would become:

=SUMIFS(D3:D8,C3:C8,A2,D3:D8,">0")

or
=SUMIFS(D3:D8,C3:C8,"US",D3:D8,">0")
