Hi guys, my first post here and I would like to ask your help for my problem.
I'm trying to use sumproduct, but cant really find a way to avoid errors because of the headers.
In the pic attached, all I want to do is multiply col G and H if there's a "yes" in col F.
Any suggestion?

Thank in advance

Yes! exactly! But I would like to generalize and get all columns ( B:B, C:C ... and so on), in order to automatically generate the sumproduct if I update the matrix. But as I do, it gives me error, and I understand it's because of the headers.

If it's a dynamic area, you can use Indirect instead of A:A
