How to sumif with multiple criteria in one column?

In Excel, SUMIF function is a useful function for us to sum cells with multiple criteria in different columns, but with this function, we can also sum cells based on multiple criteria in one column. In this article. I will talk about how to sum values with more than one criteria in same column.

Sum cells with multiple OR criteria in one column with formulas

For example, I have the following data range, now, I would like to get the total orders of the product KTE and KTO in January.

For multiple OR criteria in the same field, use multiple SUMIF functions:

Formula 1: SUMIF + SUMIF

Please enter this formula: =SUMIF(A2:A10,"KTE",B2:B10) + SUMIF(A2:A10,"KTO",B2:B10), and then press Enter key, you will get the total value of the product KTE and KTO, see screenshots:

-1
doc-sum-multiple-criteria-one-column-3

Notes:

1. In the above formula, A2:A10 is the range of cells that you want to apply the criteria against, B2:B10 is the cells which you want to sum, and KTE, KTO are the criteria you sum the cells based on.

2. In this example, there are only two criteria, you can apply more criteria just go on adding SUMIF( ) after the formula, such as =sumif(range, criteria, sum_range) + sumif(range, criteria, sum_range) + sumif(range, criteria, sum_range)+…

Formula 2: SUM and SUMIF

If there are multiple criteria need to be added, the above formula will be long and tedious, in this case, I can give you a more compact formula to solve it.

Type this formula into a blank cell: =SUM(SUMIF(A2:A10, {"KTE","KTO"}, B2:B10)), and then press Enter key to get the result you need, see screenshot:

doc-sum-multiple-criteria-one-column-4

Notes:

1. In the above formula, A2:A10 is the range of cells that you want to apply the criteria against, B2:B10 is the cells which you want to sum, and KTE, KTO are the criteria you sum the cells based on.

2. To sum with more criteria, you just need to add the criteria into the braces, such as =SUM(SUMIF(A2:A10, {"KTE","KTO","KTW","Office Tab"}, B2:B10)).

3. This formula only can use when the range cells that you want to apply the criteria against in a same column.


Advanced Combine Rows:(Combine duplicate rows and sum / average corresponding values):
  • 1. Specify the key column that you want to combine other column based on;
  • 2. Choose one calculation for your combined data.

      Hello, Alejandro,
      To use the cell references instead of the specific text value, you just need to apply the below array formula:
      =SUM(SUMIF(A2:A10,E1:E2,B2:B10))
      After entering this formula, please press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys together to get the result.

    As shown above, we can do either
    =SUMIF(A2:A10,"KTE",B2:B10) + SUMIF(A2:A10,"KTO",B2:B10)
    or
    =SUM(SUMIF(A2:A10, {"KTE","KTO"}, B2:B10))
    for short

    What if I don't want to use KTE and KTO directly in the code and use the cell they are into? How am I suppose to write the code for the short version?

    Hi,

    Is there a way to use INDIRECT function, eg INDIRECT(E3), instead of using "Apple" in the SUMIF function? eg. SUM(SUMIF(A1:A5, {"Apple","Orange"}, C1:C5)) and use something like this SUM(SUMIF(A1:A5,(INDIRECT(E3),INDIRECT(E4)),C1:C5)?

    I'm hoping someone can help me with this.

    Name Categories
    John 1, 5, 8, 10, 12
    Mike 4, 8, 9, 11, 15
    Brittany 2, 5, 14, 23
    Angela 1, 6, 7, 14, 19
    David 11, 10, 23

    In the above scenario, the categories for each person are what would be within the brackets of a SUM(SUMIFS( formula. I am trying to create a formula that can be dragged down for my entire data set. The problem is my data set is for hundreds of people, so creating IF statements for each scenario makes the formula entirely too long. Is there any way the criteria within the brackets can be a cell reference? Or if there are any other suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    Can you help me? I have three different criteria (two are in the same column). For example: countif (D2:D4, "yes") + countif (E2:E6, {"member", "board"})....I know its not right but what can I do to get the total count of "yes" that are "member" or "board" .

    hanks dear,
    could you please help me with multiple (or) conditions in multiple columns
    e.g.:
    SUMIFS(A1:A10,B1:B10,{“Mike”,”John”},C1:C10,{“Apple”,”Orange”},D1:D10,””,…)
    is this can work in somehow, I try but its give unreal result (Less than the actual) “it seems like the excel is calculating the second (or) condition based on the filtered data in the first (or) condition.
    thanks in advanced :),,
