Hi, could you provide a data example, please
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 12:51
Are you there?
User 10/08/2017 - 12:52
hi
User 10/08/2017 - 12:52
yes
User 10/08/2017 - 12:52
i have the following formula
User 10/08/2017 - 12:53
I just need this to be able to look at multiple sections for the criteria
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 12:54
I didn't get what exactly you want me to explain you?
User 10/08/2017 - 12:54
i.e if c22 is daily and g22 is B7, but also add others with the same criteria
User 10/08/2017 - 12:54
so currently the forumla is in e3:ex
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 12:55
do you have skype?
User 10/08/2017 - 12:55
I want it to be able to see that multiple ones have criteria
User 10/08/2017 - 12:55
no sorry
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 12:55
okay, leave me your email then
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 12:55
Looks like it is not gonna be enough of this time
User 10/08/2017 - 12:55
can you point me in the right direction then?
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 12:57
I just still don't get what you want this formula to show you. That's why I need more data for the example, that i could see references of this formula
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 12:57
Then I will think it over and send you back a result via email
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 12:57
but i still don;t have any ofyour contact
User 10/08/2017 - 12:58
At the moment it is only calculating that the top result on the right is fitting the criteria of the formula
User 10/08/2017 - 12:58
i.e C22 and G22 in the formula
User 10/08/2017 - 12:58
but i need this to be able to look across the whole table 2
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 12:59
look, The C22 and G22 are BLANK. There is no Table2. I can't fix your problem without the data. You may send another data if it is classified, just change them for an example
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 12:59
it is really difficult to understand even without a real spreadsheet
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:00
ny enail: tieliegin@gmail.com in case the session is over, please write it down
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:00
*my
User 10/08/2017 - 01:00
I have put the data in the screen on the right?
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:00
yes, but it's not enough
User 10/08/2017 - 01:01
C22 and g22 is just the formula i am using but there is too much to send or look at
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:01
and the error in your formula shows me ERROR of the reference
User 10/08/2017 - 01:01
=IF(AND(Savings!C22="Daily",Savings!G22=Savings!\$B\$7),SUMPRODUCT(--(C6>=Savings!\$E\$22:\$E\$31)*(C6<=Savings!\$F\$22:\$F\$31),Savings!\$D\$22:\$D\$31)*365,0)
User 10/08/2017 - 01:01
all i want to know is how to add multiple fields to fit the criteria
User 10/08/2017 - 01:01
I.e more than just c22 and G22
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:02
but you already have used AND() function here, basically you can use it anywhere
User 10/08/2017 - 01:02
so i cant make it so it is looking at the whole table? it will only ever be able to look at c22 and g22>?
User 10/08/2017 - 01:03
as i need the first line of the formula to look at say C22:C30 and G22:30
User 10/08/2017 - 01:03
and all the ones that fit the criteria within those ranged
User 10/08/2017 - 01:03
ranges*
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:03
so it is not about specifying different criteria, it is about, perhaps formula of array
User 10/08/2017 - 01:03
yes
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:03
do you know how it works?
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:04
in general?
User 10/08/2017 - 01:04
the criteria itself is fine, its just its only looking at the specified cells
User 10/08/2017 - 01:04
so in my data there, it is looking at G4 and K4 and putting in one figure
User 10/08/2017 - 01:04
but i need it to look across it all
User 10/08/2017 - 01:05
ie any that fit the Daily and ISA criteria from G2:G5 and K2:K%
User 10/08/2017 - 01:05
K5*
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:05
try to press Ctrl+Shift+Enter to apply array
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:06
I got you i think, but basically I need to see this result in order to modify your formula.
User 10/08/2017 - 01:06
with the same formula?
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:07
i'm not sure, but try to specify range in the formula and apply Ctrl+Shift+Enter
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:07
I can not say you for sure just because I do not see the whole example data, sorry
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:09
The way we work here is that we are provided with the example data and show how the things work. Otherwise it does not work good
User 10/08/2017 - 01:09
okay
Excelchat Expert 10/08/2017 - 01:09
You may email me full info and I will help you, just don't want to to mislead you in a rush
User 10/08/2017 - 01:09

User 10/08/2017 - 01:09
ok
