# Add an Argument to this SUMIFS function

Posted on 2014-07-21

Hi Experts:

How would I modify this SUMIFS Function to subtract fields in "HisDataSUM" in which the values in column C were equal to the values in column D?

SUMIFS(HisDataSum!\$A:\$A,HisDataSum!\$B:\$B,IF(D13="All","<>0",D13),HisDataSum!\$C:\$C,IF(D14="All","<>0",D14),HisDataSum!\$E:\$E,IF(D16="All","<>0",D16) - X,

Using all the same criteria for cells D13, D14, and D16 X needs to Sum the values in HisDataSum column A only in the instances where the values in column C = column D.

If there is an easier way to do this; such as forget about the subtraction and only sum if column C <> column D that will work as well!

In order to use SUMIFS (and whole column references), you would need to add a helper column which flags when column C is equal to column C.... for example =IF(C2=D2,"Match","Not Matched")

e.g.

SUMIFS(HisDataSum!\$A:\$A,HisDataSum!\$B:\$B,IF(D13="All","<>0",D13),HisDataSum!\$C:\$C,IF(D14="All","<>0",D14),HisDataSum!\$E:\$E,IF(D16="All","<>0",D16,HisDataSum!\$X:\$X,"<>Match")

where X:X is flag column used...

Otherwise, you would need to use SUMPRODUCT and limit range sizes.

Flag column created, and it works, not the most elegant, but certainly better than limiting range sizes!
