CountIf or SumIf in Excel with Two Conditions


July 05, 2002 - by Bill Jelen

Kári asks:

I have a formula where I have to put in a criteria. The criteria is, that the formula has to gather numbers that are bigger than 0,5 (>0,5), but not bigger than 2 (<2). But how do I do that? I have tried: ">0,5"&"<2" and a lot of other combinations, but nothing works.

Kári: For a SUMIF or COUNTIF formula with 2 conditions, you need to use an array formula.

I wrote a related article a few years ago, a better version of the formula has come to light. It discusses using this formula for a CountIf with 2 conditions:

=SUM(IF($C$2:$C$4403>0.5,IF($B$2:$B$4403<2,1,0),0))

You can use boolean logic instead to write this formula for CountIf

=SUM(($C$2:$C$4403>0.5)*($C$2:$C$4403<2)*1)

or this formula for SumIf:

=SUM(($C$2:$C$4403>0.5)*($C$2:$C$4403<2)*($C$2:$C$4403))

Remember, you must hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys then hit enter to enter these CSE or Array formulas.
