I am really stuck with this one.....

=SUMPRODUCT(CABLE!$B$5:$B$5153='Qty Terminations'!C3,((CABLE!$J$5:$J$5153+CABLE!$P$5:$P$5153)*CABLE!$I$5:$I$5153))

The value being look up are in a column B
Then start the crazy part.
For each match in column B,
(Value in column J + Value in column P) * Value in Column I
This needs to add multiple rows if the match occurs numerous times.

CABLE!$B$5:$B$5153='Qty Terminations'!C3 returns True/False
To convert to 1/0 for multiplication use
--(CABLE!$B$5:$B$5153='Qty Terminations'!C3)

Change to
=SUMPRODUCT(--(CABLE!$B$5:$B$5153='Qty Terminations'!C3),CABLE!$J$5:$J$5153+CABLE!$P$5:$P$5153,CABLE!$I$5:$I$5153)

Open in new window

You could also use
=SUMPRODUCT((CABLE!$B$5:$B$5153='Qty Terminations'!C3)*((CABLE!$J$5:$J$5153+CABLE!$P$5:$P$5153)*CABLE!$I$5:$I$5153))

Open in new window

then CABLE!$B$5:$B$5153='Qty Terminations'!C3 with True/False works as if it is 1/0.
but sumproduct without * should be slightly faster.

Hmmm.

=SUMPRODUCT(--(CABLE!$B$5:$B$5153='Qty Terminations'!C3),CABLE!$J$5:$J$5153+CABLE!$P$5:$P$5153,CABLE!$I$5:$I$5153) Gives me #N/A

=SUMPRODUCT((CABLE!$B$5:$B$5153='Qty Terminations'!C3)*((CABLE!$J$5:$J$5153+CABLE!$P$5:$P$5153)*CABLE!$I$5:$I$5153)) Gives me #VALUE!

Maybe it could be my data......

Let me try it on some test data......

Your formulas worked..... Who would have thought that few blank cells formatted as text would have caused me so much grief....

Thank you for your formulas.... They worked perfectly after I normalized my data....

Formulas were perfect for the problem.... Additionally offering a second option was a bonus.
