# FIND THE SUM TOTAL OF AN --ISNUMBER REESULT

Posted on 2014-09-05

I have a spreadsheet that finds the total number of times a category reason code is noted on another worksheet, but now I have to find what the total dollars are for that category reason code.  How do I proceed?  Use an "If" statement, a "Match" + Sumproduct statement, or ???

Attached is a sample of the spreadsheet; the Review worksheet has the categories with their count + dollar columns and the Detail worksheet the codes used with the claim value.

Great formula.  You only have to add a reference to the "Except Amt" column in the SUMPRODUCT formula to return the total amount for any category:

=IF(C6="","",SUMPRODUCT(--(ISNUMBER(FIND(","&C6&",",","&SUBSTITUTE(Detail!B\$2:B\$41," ","")&","))),Detail!\$C\$2:\$C\$41))
