## Sum if greater than or less than a specific value in Excel

To sum a list of values that are greater than or less than a specific value, the normal SUMIF function can help you to deal with this task. In this article, I will talk about how to use the SUMIF function to finish this problem in Excel.

#### Sum if greater than or less than a specific value with SUMIF function

To sum values which are greater than or less than a given number, the generic syntaxes are:

Generic formula with hardcoded value:

Sum values greater than:      =SUMIF(range, ">value")
Sum values less than:           =SUMIF(range, "<value")
• range: The range of cells with values to be evaluated and summed;
• ">value", "<value": The criteria that is used to determine which of the cells should be summed. Here, indicates greater than or less than a specific value. (A variety of logical operators can be used to your needs, such as “=”, “>”, “>=”, “<”, “<=” etc.)

Generic formula with cell reference:

Sum values greater than:      =SUMIF(range, ">"& cell_ref)
Sum values less than:           =SUMIF(range, "<"& cell_ref)
• range: The range of cells with values to be evaluated and summed;
• ">value", "<value": The criteria that is used to determine which of the cells should be summed. Here, indicates greater than or less than a specific value. (A variety of logical operators can be used to your needs, such as “=”, “>”, “>=”, “<”, “<=” etc.)
• cell_ref: The cell contains the specific number that you want to sum values based on.

Take the above screenshot data as an example, I want to sum all the amount values that are greater than 300, please apply any one of the below formulas you like, and then press Enter key to get the result:

=SUMIF(\$B\$2:\$B\$12,">300")              (Type the criteria manually)
=SUMIF(\$B\$2:\$B\$12,">"&D2)
(Use a cell reference)

Tips:

To sum up all amounts that are less than 300, please apply the following formulas:

=SUMIF(\$B\$2:\$B\$12,"<300")              (Type the criteria manually)
=SUMIF(\$B\$2:\$B\$12,"<"&D2)
(Use a cell reference)
