# Excel 2010 Sumproduct

Posted on 2014-12-24

I have a total formula in column E that works great.  The formula is [ =IF(B2<>B3,SUMPRODUCT(--(\$B\$2:\$B\$8000=B2),(\$C\$2:\$C\$8000)),"")]  My spreadsheet is sorted by the B Number (Column B) and a second level sort on Days (Column D).   I need a formula that can count the ZXZ in column A for the same B number.   I need to know how many B numbers are related to the ZXZ.  For example, the 1st B number is 008589926 and I have 2 ZXZ (Cell A7 and A8) so in cell F8 in should have 4.  I tried several different formulas, but I canâ€™t get it to work.  Please help.  Thank you.

If you want a unique count of the Z and B Number combinations in column F (and it will help if the data remains sorted/grouped as currently), then you can see the sub-totals by inserting this formula in cell F2 and copying down:
=IF((A2&B2)<>(A3&B3),SUMIFS(\$C\$2:\$C\$8000,\$A\$2:\$A\$8000,A2,\$B\$2:\$B\$8000,B2),"")

By the way, you could replace your SUMPRODUCT function in column E with this:
=IF(B2<>B3,SUMIF(\$B\$2:\$B\$8000,B2,\$C\$2:\$C\$8000),"")

Additionally, you might look into using PivotTables to summarize your data.  See the attached file for examples of all.

Glenn,

Thank you for your help, but I need a formula to only add the ZXZ in column A that have the same B number.  I tried to fix your formula, but I can't get it.  Your sumproduct formula works great and the Pivot table is amazing.  Again, thank you.

Glenn,

I can't edit my other comment, but I need the Qty added for the ZXZ number that have the same B number.

Doh!  I apologize; it's right there in the column header!  Here's the corrected formula (in F2, copied down).
=IF(AND(A2="ZXZ",(B2<>B3)),SUMIFS(\$C\$2:\$C\$8000,\$A\$2:\$A\$8000,A2,\$B\$2:\$B\$8000,B2),"")
