SUMIFS number stored as text

Hi,

please see attached worksheet.   I have SUMIFS formula in Column D and it does not work because Column B data are numbers stored as text.  I want help with formula to modify the formula, so that without converting the B column to number, my formula would work.

The following array formula works:

{=SUM(IF(($A$2:$A$19=A2)*(VALUE($B$2:$B$19)<=VALUE(B2)),$C$2:$C$19,0))}

Enter it WITHOUT the curly braces, and the use Ctrl+Shift+Enter instead of Enter to finish it.  Excel will then display the formula within braces to indicate that it is an array formula.

Hi,

pls try ( as array formula Ctrl-Shift-Enter)

=SUMPRODUCT($C$2:$C$19,--($A$2:$A$19=A2),--(VALUE($B$2:$B$19)<=VALUE(B2)))

Glad to help :)

Also happy to see Rgonzo1971's SUMPRODUCT approach.  I tried something similar but couldn't get it to work, and so resorted to the explicit array formula (SUMPRODUCT can be made to work, as Rgonzo1971 ably demonstrated, as an implicit array function).
