First of all, sorry for my bad English haha.

I used Skyyang's formula, but I'm still missing a small part in my formula. I entered the following formula, but it doesn’t recognize my 2nd criteria in the answer. Can you help me further? I can share the sheet if you want.

=SOMPRODUCT(((D4:D45="Auto")+(E4:E45="Zonder vervanging")*(SUBTOTAAL(3;VERSCHUIVING(E4;RIJ(E4:E45)-RIJ(E4:E45)-3;)))))

Does anybody knows how to do this but with more than one criteria? I mean, if I wanted to COUNT only the rows which qualify for two or more criterias?
Thanks a bunch!

Hello, WN,
May be the following formula can help you:
=SUMPRODUCT( ( (B2:B23="Large")+(B2:B23="Small"))*(SUBTOTAL(103,OFFSET(B2,ROW(B2:B23)-MIN(ROW(B2:B23)),0))))

If you have more criteria, just join the criteria with + character.
Please try, hope it can help you!

If i have data in sheet 1 in trying to pull into sheet 2 that comes from a range in a column i want but I'm only looking for data that had a certain value of "system issue" and i want the second sheet to be able to see how many in that column had system issue but *** up the paid amounts in a separate column of sheet one that filter to the "system issue" so we can see how much has been paid out for system issues, thoughts on the formula? The one you keep sharing is only for 1 sheet and you keep using a number after the first parenthesis that i do not know how you came up with it.

Can this be done with more than one criteria? I mean, I know it can be as per the below answered questions. I have to have sum based on two criteria's One criteria in Row B as "RN" and another one in row DX as "D" and the sum is going to be in row EA. Any help would be great!

Hi, Bernardo,
To solve your problem, you should apply below formula:
=SUMPRODUCT(SUBTOTAL(9,OFFSET(B2,ROW(B2:B14)-ROW(B2),0)),--(A2:A14="Lucy"),--(B2:B14>0))

Please try, hope it can help you!

It's absolutely ridiculous that EXCEL requires the formula to be so complicated! All that should be needed is a SUBTOTAL(9,Range) WHERE/HAVING criteria (X,Y,Z).

Yes I agree, I am looking for the Excel formula so that the sum of the range (with criteria) is NOT affected by the Filtered columns.

I agree. It is ridiculous
