Thanks to your wonderful site I was able to solve half my formula problem

I have the following formula:

=SUMPRODUCT((C4:C304=701)*(L4:L304>=0.01))

But I need it to also look at M4:M304 and N4:N304 and if L,M OR N are >=0.01 count but sometime there might be a value in L M and N but i only want it to count once for that row.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Test for Multiple Conditions in IF?
Use AND(test, test, test, test) or OR(test, test, test, ...) as the logical_test argument of IF.

Welcome to the forum

try

=SUMPRODUCT(--((L4:L304>=0.01)+(M4:M304>=0.01)+(N4:N304>=0.01)>0)*(C4:C304=701))

Most definitely, I am so excited that it works... although I really don't understand the why behind it... if you don't mind, can you explain in layman terms the logic? If not, I am okay with Just the fact that it works.

We can evaluate a formula with Tools | Formula Auditing | Evaluate (Alt tuf) or use the icon (Evaluate Formula). You may have to add the the evaluate icon to your menu of icons.

With the above, we can visually step through the calculation. It is a good idea to work with a very concise example so we can focus on the particular challenge; it also makes it easier to follow the "Evaluation".

This helps us understand the formula and/or to troubleshoot it.

You can also search the forum for many examples and explanations.

Mr. Aladin Akyurek in particular plus others contributed greatly to the knowledge base re SumProduct.
