I have an employee who has worked across multiple locations.  I need to return data (hours, sales) etc, but only for stores that are not her home store.

I have attached a sample. First sheet is home store. Second sheet includes employees who worked at multiple stores.

I need to return the data NOT at home store.

I think you can use the COUNTIFS and SUMIFS function to specify multiple criteria to your summary. One of those criteria will be (in plain speak) "STORE DOES NOT EQUAL HOME STORE".

Syntax for SUMIFS is:

=SUMIFS(SumRange,CriteriaRange1,Criteria1,CriteriaRange2,Criteria2....)

Syntax for COUNTIFS is very similar, except don't need the SUMRange:

=COUNTIFS(CriteriaRange1,Criteria1,CriteriaRange2,Criteria2....)

To indicate a "NOT EQUAL TO" you would use " "<>"&CellReference "  without the outer set of double quotes.

So with your sample, Samantha Dixon's home store is 300. On the duplicate sheet she has also worked at store 1790. Is that the data that you are trying to determine?

In the sheet, you have store 300 as a number and as 0300 preceded with an apostrophe making it text. Are they the same salon?

I have been trying the above and it does not seem to recognise the "<>" criteria, bizarre!!

I have gone the other way instead, add up all and deduct those that are at home store.

Formula for cell C3 in sheet 300:

=SUMIFS(Duplicates!C:C,Duplicates!$B:$B,$A3)-SUMIFS(Duplicates!C:C,Duplicates!$B:$B,$A3,Duplicates!$A:$A,$B3)

Strictly speaking the first SUMIFS in that could be just SUMIF as there is only one criteria but left as SUMIFS for consistency.

With the $ column locking, you can copy that across to column D. For the formula in column E copy column C or D to column G and then cut and paste back to column E.
