Hello All,

I am wondering if there are any ideas to simplify/shorten the following formula. It works fine, but it is fairly long.

=IF(SUMIF('Sheet2'!\$C\$5:\$C\$200,G21,'Sheet2'!\$G\$5:\$G\$200)>0,SUMIF('Sheet2'!\$C\$5:\$C\$200,G21,'Sheet2'!\$G\$5:\$G\$200),SUMIF('Sheet2'!\$C\$5:\$C\$200,G21,'Sheet2'!\$F\$5:\$F\$200))

Thanks!

### Excel Facts

How to create a cell-sized chart?
Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.
One way to make it shorter is to enlist the use of named ranges, which will shorten your range references.

If you want to see if there is a way to use less functions in it, please explain your layout in detail, and describe exactly what it is that you are trying to do.

The formula can be slightly shortened by moving the IF inside a SUMIF:

=SUMIF(Sheet2!\$C\$5:\$C\$200,G21,IF(SUMIF(Sheet2!\$C\$5:\$C\$200,G21,Sheet2!\$G\$5:\$G\$200)>0,Sheet2!\$G\$5:\$G\$200,Sheet2!\$F\$5:\$F\$200))
