Use the combination of the SUMPRODUCT and SUMIF functions to sum values based on criteria of ‘if equals to many things’. In our example, we will set the criteria to sum product A and B. Formula: How the formula works In the above screenshot, the formulas used is: =SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(A4:A9,D4:D5,B4:B9)) where, the SUMIF function is used […]

## Sum top n values in Excel

By using the SUMPRODUCT and the LARGE functions, we can sum top n values in Excel. In our example, we will sum top three values from data. Formula: How the formula works The formula used is: =SUMPRODUCT(LARGE(A2:A7,{1,2,3})) where, the syntax for the SUMPRODUCT function is =SUMPRODUCT (array1, [array2], …) and the LARGE function is used against array1 […]

## LARGE function

Use Returns with the largest numerical value in a list, e.g. 1st larget value, second largest value and so on. Description The LARGE function is used to find k-th largest numerical value from your desired data, based on its relative standing or position. Syntax =LARGE(array, k) where, array – The range of cells from which you want […]

## Sum if ends with

The SUMIF function can add all values in a range of cells based on the criteria to sum if ends with specific text, e.g. sum only those values which end with “Children” or “children”. Formula: How the formula works The formula for the function is =SUMIF(A4:A8,”*children”,B4:B8) where, range (A4:A8) – The range of cells to […]

## Sum if cells contain an asterisk

Use SUMIF function with the special escape character “~“, to sum cells containing an asterisk “*“. In our example below, let’s see how the formula works. Formula: The SUMIF function is: =SUMIF(A5:A9,”*~*”,B5:B9) where, range (A5:A9) – The range of cells to be tested against the criteria, criteria (“*~*”) – The criteria to sum only cells […]

## Sum between dates

For values to be sum between dates, use the SUMIFS function. For between dates, we will need two criteria to match dates, in our example, we will sum all values between “1-Jan-20” to “28-Feb-20”. The SUMIFS function used in our example is: =SUMIFS(B5:B9,A5:A9,”>=”&A13,A5:A9,”<=”&B13) where, sum_range (B5:B9) – The range of cells to sum against both criteria […]
