Use SUMIFS with multiple criteria based on OR logic

By default, the SUMIFS function handles multiple criteria based on AND logic. If you want to sum multiple criteria based on OR logic, you need to use the SUMIFS function within an array constant.

How to use SUMIFS with multiple criteria based on OR logic?

Suppose you have an order quantity table as shown in the screenshot below, to sum the total quantity of KTE or KTW sold per day, you can try the following formula.

Generic Formulas

=SUM(SUMIFS(sum_range, criteria_range , {“criteria1”,”criteria2”,... }))

Arguments

Sum_range: A range that you want to sum values based on criteria.
Criteria_range: The range of cells that you want evaluated by the criteria;
Criteria1: The first criterion defines which values in the Criteria_range will be summed.
Criteria2: The second criterion defines which values in the Criteria_range will be summed.

How to use this formula?

Select a cell, enter the formula below and press the Enter key to get the result.

=SUM(SUMIFS(E5:E14,C5:C14, {"KTE","KTO"}))

Notes:

1) You cannot use cell reference in an array constant. You need to type the criteria directly and enclose them in double quotation marks.
2) E5:E14 is the range that you want to sum;
3) C5:C14 is the range that you want evaluated by the criteria;
4) "KT" and "KTO" are the criteria.
