# SUMIFS Dynamic range

I need to sum data for each department. This seems simple but my data's columns are not always in the same order. I'm sure there is a way to find the 'department column in an array then find the wages column and sum particular department names.

It just needs to work with dynamic data.

 Name Department Wages Smith, John Admin 1000 Spalding, Sally Sales 500 Clooney, George Admin 700 Sales 800 Revere, Paul SAles 300 Admin 1700

Try:

=SUMIFS(INDEX(A:C,0,MATCH("wages",INDEX(A:C,1,0),0)),INDEX(A:C,0,MATCH("department",INDEX(A:C,1,0),0)),"sales")

Thank you soooo much!!

Now what if I want to total the "Wages" column but I don't know what column tha's going to end up in.

Try:

=SUMIFS(INDEX(A:C,0,MATCH("wages",INDEX(A:C,1,0),0)),INDEX(A:C,0,MATCH("department",INDEX(A:C,1,0),0)),"sales")[

The formula I proposed determines itself the wages column (the column range to sum) and the department column (the condition range) automatically.

So if I remove the "department" condition it will total the entire wages column?

Where are you heading? SUMIF (also SUMIFS) requires at least 1 condition.
