Hello Hardik

Thanks for visiting our blog and sharing your difficulties. To find the total cost of the products sold that cost more than \$1,000 using cell value as Criteria:

1. Select cell L9.
2. Insert the following formula: `=SUMIF(G6:G92, K9, G6:G92)`
3. Hit Enter to see the following output.

Hopefully, the formula will overcome the situation; good luck.
