Excel SUMIF Function


SUMIF Function

The SUMIF function is a premade function in Excel, which calculates the sum of values in a range based on a true or false condition.

It is typed =SUMIF:

=SUMIF(range, criteria, [sum_range])

The condition is referred to as criteria, which can check things like:

  • If a number is greater than another number >
  • If a number is smaller than another number <
  • If a number or text is equal to something =

The [sum_range] is the range where the function calculates the sum.

Note: The [sum_range] is optional.

If not specified, the function calculates the sum of the same range as the condition.

Note: The different parts of the function are separated by a symbol, like comma , or semicolon ;

The symbol depends on your Language Settings.
