Microsoft Excel is a powerful program, and we use it on a regular basis. However, we can easily calculate the sum in Excel using **the OFFSET** and **MATCH functions** in addition to **the SUM function**. In this article, I will show you **4 **ideal examples to determine any **sum using OFFSET and MATCH **in **Excel **from any set of data. Hence, read the article carefully and save time.

## 4 Ideal Examples of Sum Using OFFSET and MATCH in Excel

In this section, I will demonstrate **4 **ideal examples for calculating sum using **OFFSET **and **MATCH **functions in **Excel**. For the purpose of demonstration, we have used the following simple dataset. Here, we have the sales record of a company named **Mars Group**. However, we have the names of the **Products **in column **B** and the number of each product sold in the years **2020 **and **2021 **in columns **C **and **D, **respectively.

### 1. Sum in Single Row and Multiple Columns Using OFFSET and MATCH in Excel

Fortunately, Microsoft Excel provides us with a function called the **OFFSET **function, which takes a cell reference to begin, then moves a specific number of rows down, then again moves a specific number of columns right. After reaching the destination cell, it collects data on a given number of heights and a given width from that cell. In this section, I will use it to find the total sales of **Smartphones **in **2020 **and **2021**.

**📌 Steps:**

- Initially, select cell
**D11**and write down the following formula.

`=SUM(OFFSET(B4,MATCH("Smartphone",B5:B9,0),MATCH(2020,C4:D4,0),1,MATCH(2021,C4:D4,0)))`

**🔎 Formula Breakdown:**

- Firstly, using the
**MATCH**function, the three criteria:**Smartphone**,**2020**, and**2021**are matched with ranges**B5:B9**,**C4:D4**, and**C4:D4**, respectively, from the dataset. - Here, the match type is
**2**, which gives an exact match. - After that, the
**OFFSET**function extracts the values of the matched cells. - Lastly, the
**SUM**function provides the sum of the output values provided by the**OFFSET**function.

- Finally, press
**Enter**in order to get the final output.

### 2. Combine OFFSET and MATCH Functions to Sum in Multiple Rows and Single Column

In this part, I will try to determine some sums using the **OFFSET **function of Excel along with the **SUM **and **MATCH **functions. The process is straightforward and handy to operate. However, I have combined the functions in order to find the sum for multiple rows and a single column. Hence, go through the steps below to calculate the total sales for the year **2020**.

**📌 Steps:**

- Firstly, select cell
**D11**and insert the following formula.

`=SUM(OFFSET(B4,1,MATCH(2020,C4:D4,0),MATCH("Television",B5:B9,0),1))`

- Lastly, hit
**Enter**key to get the final output.

### 3. Join OFFSET and MATCH in Excel to Find Total in Multiple Rows and Multiple Columns

Furthermore, I have joined the **OFFSET **and **MATCH **functions to find the sum for multiple rows and multiple columns in Excel. For the purpose of demonstration, I have chosen the complete dataset and calculated the **total sales** of all products in **2020 **and **2021**. However, the process is quite similar to the previous ones. Hence, follow the steps below in order to get your desired outcome.

**📌 Steps:**

- In the beginning, click cell
**D11**and insert the formula below.

`=SUM(OFFSET(B4,MATCH("Laptop",B5:B9,0),MATCH(2020,C4:D4,0),MATCH("Television",B5:B9,0)-MATCH("Laptop",B5:B9,0)+1,MATCH(2021,C4:D4,0)))`

**🔎 Formula Breakdown:**

- Initially, using the
**MATCH**function, the four criteria:**Laptop**,**2020**,**Television**, and**2021**are matched with ranges**B5:B9**,**C4:D4**,**B5:B9**, and**C4:D4**, respectively, from the dataset. - Secondly, the match type is
**10**, which gives an exact match. - Thirdly, the
**OFFSET**function extracts the values of the matched cells. - Finally, the
**SUM**function provides the sum of the final values provided by the**OFFSET**function.

- Lastly, press
**Enter**key to receive the final result as shown in the picture below.

### 4. Apply Excel OFFSET and MATCH Functions to Sum with Criteria

Last but not least, I applied the **OFFSET **and **MATCH **functions to calculate the sum with criteria or conditions. For this reason, I utilized the **SUMIF **function in addition to those to impose a condition. Moreover, it is suitable for several situations when the sum satisfies particular conditions. For example, I calculated the total sales for the year **2021 **to be more than **$500**. However, read through the steps below in order to complete the task easily.

**📌 Steps:**

- First, click cell
**D11**and write the formula mentioned below.

`=SUMIF(OFFSET(B4,1,MATCH(2021,C4:D4,0),MATCH("Television",B5:B9,0),1),">500")`

Here, I have used the **SUMIF **function instead of the **SUM **function in order to impose the condition.

- Finally, press
**Enter**button in order to receive the final result.

## Conclusion

These are all the steps you can follow** to complete a sum using OFFSET and MATCH in Excel.** Hopefully, you can now easily create the needed adjustments.
