# SumIfs Using Indirect based on 2 Criteria

#### MINDFULLYLIZ

Hi! I have been struggling for 5 days trying to get this formula to work. Basically, I need it to search across a few worksheets which I have named "JON" and sum a corresponding cell if it meets two conditions.

The formula returns a "Value" error:

=SUMIFS(INDIRECT("'"&JON&"'!\$F\$16:\$F\$65"),INDIRECT("'"&JON&"'!\$A\$16:\$A\$65"),\$A5,INDIRECT("'"&JON&"'!A1:A1"),\$B5))

Please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

Also note on the second criteria I've changed the "A1:A1" to just A1 and A1:A2 and A1:B2 to see if that helps

### Excel Facts

What is =ROMAN(40) in Excel?
The Roman numeral for 40 is XL. Bill "MrExcel" Jelen's 40th book was called MrExcel XL.

Welcome to MrExcel.

Why do you need to use INDIRECT? Your formula returns an error because JON has no value. Is that the name of the sheet?

Code:
SUMIFS(JON!\$F\$16:\$F\$65,criteria1,JON!\$A\$!6:\$A\$65,criteria2,JON!\$A\$1,\$B5)

Is the third criteria that JON!A1 = B5 ?
It's not clear to me what the 1st and 2nd criteria are.

If you presented a sheet using XL2BB, it would help understanding your objectives.

Hi and thank you for helping. I thought I had to use the indirect function in order to reference the different worksheets?

The first criteria is JON!A1=B5
and the second is JON!A16:A65 =A5
the sum range would be JON!F16:F65

I entered this =SUMIFS(JON!\$F\$16:\$F\$65,JON!\$A\$16:\$A\$65,\$A5,JON!\$A\$1,\$B5)

and I get this error:

I don't quite understand your logic, but try this:

Code:
=SUMPRODUCT((JON!A1=B5)*(JON!A16:A65=A5)*(JON!F16:F65))

It seems that if A1 <> B5 the sum will be 0. Is that right?

If this is all run on the JON sheet, you don't need to use the JON reference. Just:

Code:
=SUMPRODUCT((A1=B5)*(A16:A65=A5)*(F16:F65))

If you posted a sheet using XL2BB, it would help

@MINDFULLYLIZ
With SUMIFS all the criteria ranges must be the same size, which is why you formula doesn't work.
Can you post some sample data using the XL2BB add-in?

@kweaver
I think that JON is a range name which has the sheet names the formula should look at.

If you have an additional range name next to the JON range that shows whether the sheet should be included, you could use
Excel Formula:
=SUMPRODUCT((Incl=B5)*(SUMIF(INDIRECT("'"&JON&"'!A16:A65"),A5,INDIRECT("'"&JON&"'!F16:F65"))))
Where Incl is the new range name.

Hi! I used this formula as : =SUMPRODUCT(("'"&JON&"'!\$A\$1"=B5)*(SUMIF(INDIRECT("'"&JON&"'!A16:A65"),A5,INDIRECT("'"&JON&"'!F16:F65"))))

It's the first formula that hasn't returned an error, resulted in "0" answer should be 100 - but I'm going to play w/this and see what it's not picking up

Try it like
Excel Formula:
=SUMPRODUCT((COUNTIF(INDIRECT("'"&JON&"'!A1"),B5))*(SUMIF(INDIRECT("'"&JON&"'!A16:A65"),A5,INDIRECT("'"&JON&"'!F16:F65"))))
