Sumif adjacent cell equals a criterion in Excel


As below screenshot shows, you need to sum all prices of the Beef. Please do as follows.

1. Specify a cell for displaying the result.

2. Copy and paste the formula =SUM(IF(A4:E10=A13, B4:F10, 0)) into the Formula Bar, and then press Ctrl + Shift +Enter keys simultaneously to get the result.

Note: In the formula, A4:E10 is the data range which contains the specific criteria you need, A13 is the criteria that you want to sum the cells based on, and B4:F10 is the range which has the values you want to sum. . Please change the range based on your own data.

For example, you have a range A2:B7 and you just need to sum the values where the adjacent cells are blank. See screenshot below. You need to do as follows.

1. Select a blank cell to display the result. Copy and paste the formula =SUM(IF(ISBLANK(B2:B7),A2:A7,0)) (B2:B7 is the data range which contains the blank cells, and A2:A7 is the data you want to sum) into the Formula Bar, then press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys at the same time to get the result.

Then you can see all values where the adjacent cells are blank are summed and displayed in the specified cell.

Sumif adjacent cell containing text in Excel

The above method helps you sum values where the adjacent cell is blank in a certain range. In this section, you will learn how to sum values where the adjacent cells contain texts in Excel.

Just use the same example as above method shown.

1. Select a blank cell, copy and paste the formula =SUMIF(B2:B7,"<>"&"",A2:A7) ( B2:B7 is the data range which contains the text cells, and A2:A7 is the data you want to sum) into the Formula Bar, then press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys.

You will see all values where the adjacent cells contain texts are summed and displayed in the selected cell.

      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)
