      Dear Wyman Thomas,
      Supposing you need to return value of "Yes" if cell A1 contains "Apple", this formula can help you =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Apple",A1)), "Yes", "No").

    Pretty sure

    =SUMIF(B2:B7,"<>"&"",A2:B7) should be


    =SUMIF(B2:B7,"<>"&"",A2:A7)

    Dear all.

    I would like to use the SUMIF function in the following way:
    -Sum range is 1:1
    -Criteria Range is 2:2
    -Criteria is "jorge"

    However, I would like the function o work a little bit different. If "jorge" is found on B2, I would like A1 to be sum instead of A2.

    I tried =SUMIF(1:1,OFFSET(2:2,,1),"jorge") but excel does not accept such criteria range argument.

    How to get it working?

    I am looking to create a budget spreadsheet. My goal is to plug in my daily expenses, with the category in one cell and the amount in the cell beneath. As far as my spending goes, I have no problem calculating. However, I am struggling with a formula to create a running tally of each category. Can you help?

      Mike I am working on the same problem I created a drop down list for column D and my costs are in column C. Simply change the name (Contracts) of the formula to your category name. =SUMIF(D2:D31,""Contracts"",C2:C31)
