1. You can also use this formula: =SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF($A$2:$A$8,$D$2,$B$2:$B$8)) to sum values based on selection of drop-down list.

2. In the formula, A2:A8 is the category range, D2 is the drop-down list cell, and B2:B8 is the value range you need to sum based on the drop-down list selection. Please change them as you need.

    I am trying to use sumifs with set of conditions. There is a project column with sprint numbers and test cases, etc.. I created a drop down list of the project names above the cell with the formula and referred that in the Sumif condition. Now based on my dropdown selection, the total of test cases created are resulted. This works absolutely fine. Now, if I have to select the dropdown to select all projects, how do I do it. I tried creating a list item as "<>" but that is not working. Any suggestions?

      Trying using the wild card "*" so the last or first item in your list is just the *. I am working through a similar problem and that has worked most of the time.
