Sum if between

Excel conditions sum and if can be combined to form sum if between conditions. This combination is necessary for adding cells or inputs which satisfy two or more criteria between given cell ranges in a sheet. This article provides a guide on how to use the sum if between conditions in excel.

Syntax of the formula

=SUMIFS(sum-range, criteria-range, “>criteria1”, criteria-range, “<criteria2”)

This formula works with more than one criteria. In the case above, we have the first criteria as the amount being >250 while the second one being <500. Note that the amount in the syntax refers to the named range with the amount, which is B2:B8.

Explanation

SUMIFS function works with many logical operators in excel. These include “=”, “>”, “<”, “>=” and many others.

In our example above, we want to find the sum of the amount that is above $250 but less than $500. These are values found in column B. The sum_range will thus be B2:B8.

With the criteria in place, the Excel built-in function SUMIFS will sums up all the values that are greater than $250 but less than $500.

Note that our thresholds, “$250” and “$500” are excluded from the result. If you want them included, then you should replace “<” and “>” with “<=” and “>=” respectively.

Example

Figure 2. Example

Using cell reference

We can also use cell reference in order to easily expose the threshold and easily change the amounts. This can be done using the formula below:

=SUMIFS(amount, amount, “>=” &A1, amount, “<”&B1)

In this case, A1 refers to lower threshold while B1 to upper threshold.

Solution examples
I am trying to utilize a complicated sumif or sumifs formula that can pull a total amount from a date and a drop down box from another tab.
Solved by E. B. in 15 mins
I have a spreadsheet that totals invoices. A bunch of cells at the bottom of the spreadsheet calculates totals based on which department the invoice is charged to. I'd like to add a function where it also considers the date (so if it's an invoice in January, it goes to a January total, February, etc.). But I can't figure out how to write it properly...

If I want to write a formula that states" "If this name shows up K24, and this word shows up in J24 pull this number from M24" I can creat that formula - however I need to drag this down so it pulls from row 24 - 60 - is there way to do this?
Solved by F. D. in 40 mins
amending a formula so that there is another criteria and if it does not meet this criteria then we stick with the original criteria
Solved by A. B. in 40 mins
So im trying to use a sumif formula, but i need it to not look for a range for one specific criteria but instead look for what one specific field says. Example Below =sum(sumifs(QuantityMC,TeamsMC,A6,TypeMC,B2)) The above formula works as on the specific MC sheet an entire column is dedicated for "TypeMC". I want to be able to delete this column and have "TypeMC" to be a single field as it will be the same for every item on that sheet but may differ on a different sheet.
