# How to add more than one criteria in SUMIF Function?

Hi,

I want to have 2 criteria in my SUMIF function but it looks impossible, am I wrong or is there another way to do this?

eg:
Sum A1 to A50 if B1=x or B1=y

Also can I add 3 criteria?

### Excel Facts

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

You can do that using a dummy column and use the same as a range for the sumif formula.

You should use an 'If' formula in the dummy column to populate it with say "A" only if it matches the criteria of your requirement.

Like you can use in C1 = if ( or (B1=x,B1=y),"A")

and then use the Sumif formula as =SUMIF(\$C\$1:\$C\$50,.........)
