Hi gowflow

question1. Sum of values falling into 1-3 cat based on colAof what of Col B ?
answer. 6+5+8=19...
I am using col a as a ref table.

Also the count would be 3 records. ..

ok here it is you should use SUMIFS

for >=1 and <=3 this is the formula

for<4 this is the formula

and you can see it in the attached file.

Well read it again and although you said SUM of values for <4 but then you give the result of 3 then it is no more a SUMIFS but a COUNT

so for <4

You can use them without the S at the end as well but I prefer these as they open the door for multiple criteria if and when needed.
