SUMIFS requires more arguments. It looks like, from your formula above, that you need SUMIF instead and with the criteria "Mural" in the middle.
Please help if you can...
I setup a spreadsheet for reports last year that contains quite a few SUMIFS calculations.
I have several tabs on the spreadsheet that each have these calculations and the majority all work fine.
However, in every tab I have one of these SUMIFS calculations in cell L27. This calculation is now returning no results at all.
The formula I'm using is =SUMIFS(G:G,D:D,"Mural")
Any thoughts on how to fix will be greatly appreciated.

What do you get with the following?
=SUM(G:G)
>> ?
=COUNTIFS(D:D,"Mural")
>> ?
Assuming too much and qualifying too much are two faces of the same problem.
SUMIF takes the format of range, criteria, sum-range. If your numbers to sum reside in column G, your formula would be =SUMIF(D:D,"Mural",G:G).

Thanks Ken. I've tried this formula too and unfortunately still get a 0 result. despite me knowing that the COUNTIFS on the D:D column should be 9.
I believe Aladin is onto the right idea with using the wildcard character "*Mural*" in the formula, but the formula still needs to be
=SUMIF(D:D,"*Mural*",G:G) (with the criteria in the center of the column designations). I've tested this and it works perfectly, even if the word "mural" is all lowercase. I'm guessing your sheet has a leading or trailing space where "mural" is listed that the wildcard character will take care of.

Hi
Structure of your sumif formula is wrong
Sumif(Range, Criteria, SumRange)
always use "=Text" while not referring a cell
