Need help figuring out a sum formula.

I have three worksheets: Invoices, Accounts, Groups

The hierarchy works like this -
  • Each Group (row) can have multiple accounts
    • That means that in accounts there's a column specifying group for each row.
  • Each Account (Row) can have multiple Invoices.
    • in the same way, in Invoices there's a column specifying the Account for each row.
  • Invoices are at the bottom of this hierarchy.

In the Groups worksheet I need a column that will show the total amount billed per group (per month). This is where I am stuck... The billed amount is reported in Invoices.

how would I go about doing a sumifs that will collect all the invoice amounts where the account belongs to a specific group? (I am trying to avoid adding columns, if possible)

thanks in advance!

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

Hi,

SUMIFS will need a group column to compare against the account criteria for sum.

Are you able to post some sample data?
