Author: Sun Last Modified: 2020-04-21

Sometimes you want to sum the values based on criteria in another column, for instance, here I only want to sum up the "Sale Volume" column where the corresponding "Product" column equals "A" as show as below, how can you do it? Of course, you can sum them one by one, but here I introduce some simple methods for you to sum the values in Excel.

Sum values based on criteria in another column with formula in Excel

In Excel, you can use formulas to quickly sum the values based on certain criteria in an adjacent column.

1. Copy the column you will sum based on, and then pasted into another column. In our case, we copy the Fruit column and paste in Column E. See screenshot left.

2. Keep the pasted column selected, click Data > Remove Duplicates. And in the popping up Remove Duplicates dialog box, please only check the pasted column, and click the OK button.

3. Now only unique values are remained in the pasted column. Select a blank cell besides the pasted column, type the formula =SUMIF($A$2:$A$24, D2, $B$2:$B$24) into it, and then drag its AutoFill Handle down the range as you need.

And then we have summed based on the specified column. See screenshot:

Note: In above formula , A2:A24 is the column whose values you will sum based on, D2 is one value in the pasted column, and B2:B24 is the column you will sum.

In the latest Excel, you need to use ; instead of , as the separator for the arguments, so '=SUMIF($A$2:A15; D2; $B$2:$B$15)' is the correct syntax in the first example.
