hi,

cell Z1=1998

i wanna do the sum of the value starting when my row 2 will equals 1998

ex)
  • A - B - C - D - E
    row2 = 1997-1998-1999-2000-2001
    row3 = 1 1 1 1 1

in row 4 i want to calculate the sum from when row2=>1998 to actual cell

formula in E4 would look like that

=sum($"cell when cell in row2=1998":D3)=sum($A3:E3)
giving the answer 4 (1+1+1+1)

i hope i was clear enough

i basically just want to put a condition to the first cell in my range...

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

I'm guessing you mean when 1998 is in Column 2 (B), not row 2, perhaps:

=SUM(INDEX(3:3,MATCH(1998,$A$2:$E$2,0)):IV3)

ur formula almost works...but it give me the sum of the entire row until 1998 and i would like the sum of 1998 until the cell of the row...

therefore if it is before 1998 it would be zero and on 1998 it would be the same answer and after 1998 it would add 1998 + ... + 2000 if i am in the cell 2000

Not sure what you mean, as you can see in this sample it added everything from 1998 on.

ill try to explain it better...

i want to compute a range... in my case a sum

however, my range would not always start from the same cell... it will always start from the cell equals to Z1.

if Z1=1998 and i have the following data:

---A----B-----C-----D---
1997-1998-1999-2000
---1----2-----3------4---

i want my formula in E2 to sum all the cell in row 2, starting at 1998

it will give me 2+3+4 = 9

i hope it was more clear this time

In your first question, your data to sum was in Row 3, now you're saying it's in Row 2. So I'm going to go with Row 2 this time (this would put the years across in row 1):

=SUM(INDEX(2:2,MATCH($Z$1,$A$1:$E$1,0)):E2)
