Excelchat Expert 28/01/2018 - 12:01
So, which cell do you want us to revise the formula?
Excelchat Expert 28/01/2018 - 12:02
Are you referring with your G2 formula at "Main pieces" tab?
User 28/01/2018 - 12:03
trying to make it so g2 in main pieces is the sum of all the P column in sub assembly where the value in e2 main pieces matches the value in the c column of sub assembly

Excelchat Expert 28/01/2018 - 12:14
This is the formula
Excelchat Expert 28/01/2018 - 12:14
=SUMIF('Sub Assembly'!C8, E5,'Sub Assembly'!P8:P258)
Excelchat Expert 28/01/2018 - 12:14
Just trying to check your E format and C format if they are the same to match the values
Excelchat Expert 28/01/2018 - 12:16
By the way, can we use another formula aside from using sumif?
Excelchat Expert 28/01/2018 - 12:18
The formula is now created, please take a look if you're still there
Excelchat Expert 28/01/2018 - 12:19
So, the formula looks like this
Excelchat Expert 28/01/2018 - 12:19
=IF('Sub Assembly'!C8=E2,sum('Sub Assembly'!P8:P258),0)
Excelchat Expert 28/01/2018 - 12:23
Also the formula looks like this
Excelchat Expert 28/01/2018 - 12:23
=IF('Sub Assembly'!C8=E2,sum('Sub Assembly'!P:P),0)
Excelchat Expert 28/01/2018 - 12:26
Still, I'm going to share with you this file
