Sumif value greater than value in another cell

I am using =SUMIF(D4:D1115,"<700")

What I want to do is have the value 700 in another cell.

I tried =SUMIF(D4:D1115,"<B5") and put 700 in B5 but it returns zero.

Also tried a lot of other variations/syntax and Google hasn't been helpful

Thanks in advance

This should concatenate the less than with the value in B5 to resolve to your sum criteria.
