SUMIFS with Range Determined by Formula

Hi,


I want to use the SUMIFS function to add the values in $AS$1:$AS$2000 based on the criteria_range $A$1:$A$2000 and criterion in cell AZ1.


Rather than selecting the sum_range and criteria_range directly (e.g. by typing in or selecting the range with the mouse) I would like to build these references using formulae.


This is important because the sum_range may not always be in column AS.


The column for the sum_range will be determined by its heading - so, for example, the data with the required heading may be in column AS this month and AV the next, so I would like to make the references dynamic.


Can someone please suggest a solution.


I have tried ADDRESS and OFFSET without success.


Thanks!

Function SUMIFS does not allow the Range argument to be anything but a range. Here is one way to acheive what you're after.

The cells H1 and H2 contain the criteria (which I populated with Data Validation). The formula sums up the matching data for the two criteria, as indicated by the orange background in the table of data. Change the criteria and the summation will change.
