## Introduction to Excel SUMIFS Function

We use the** SUMIFS **function to **sum** up the values in the cells that satisfy various criteria like **dates**, **numbers** and **text**. Moreover, we can use the **comparison operators** and **wildcards** in this function to match the data **partially**.

**Syntax**

`SUMIFS(sum_range, criteria_range1, criteria1, [criteria_range2, criteria2], …)`

**Arguments**

* sum_range:* It is the range that we want to sum up.

* criteria_range1:* It is the first range that we need to evaluate by the corresponding criteria.

* criteria1: *It is the first criteria that we want to check in the criteria_range1.

* criteria_range2:* It is the second range to be evaluated.

* criteria2:* It is the first criteria to be checked in the criteria_range2.

## 6 Useful Examples of Excel SUMIFS Function with Multiple Sum Ranges and Multiple Criteria

In this tutorial, we will demonstrate **6** useful examples of Excel **SUMIFS** function with **multiple sum ranges** and **multiple criteria**. In most of the examples, we will use the dataset (**B4:H11**) below that contains two tables. Here, we have added the two tables for inserting **multiple sum ranges** in the **SUMIFS** function. However, the tables contain some **Countries**, **Fruits** and their corresponding **Sales**. Let’s see the application of the **SUMIFS** function in the dataset to sum up the values with **multiple sum ranges** and **multiple criteria**.

### 1. Multiple Sum Ranges & Criteria with Excel SUMIFS Function Using Comparison Operators

In the first example, we will use the **SUMIFS** function with **comparison or logical **(**>, <, =**) **operators** to sum up the values in **multiple ranges** satisfying **multiple criteria**. To demonstrate this example, we will use the dataset (**B4:H11**) below. Here, we will sum up the **Sales** based on the **Country** and the **Sales** value. Let’s see the steps below to do so.

**Steps:**

- In the first place, go to the
**cell**where you want to insert the result (cell**C13**in our case). - Secondly, to sum up the
**Sales**values, type the formula:

`=SUMIFS(D5:D11,B5:B11,"USA",D5:D11,">=1500")+SUMIFS(H5:H11,F5:F11,"Canada",H5:H11,">=1300")`

- Therefore, we can see the formula in the
**Formula Bar**of the image below.

- After inserting the formula, press the
**Enter**key to get the result. - Finally, we can see the output in cell
**C13**of the screenshot below.

### 4. SUMIFS Function for Blank & Non-Blank Cells with Multiple Ranges & Criteria

Assuming, we have a dataset (**B4:J11**) below that contains the names of some **Countries**, the **Fruits** they ordered, the **Order Date** of the **Fruits** and their corresponding **Sales**. We can see that the dataset contains both **blank** and **non-blank **cells. Now, we will **sum up** the **Sales** values based on the **Countries** and the **blank** & **non-blank **cells in the **Fruits** and **Order Date** columns. Let’s see the following steps to do so.

**Steps:**

- Firstly, select the cell (
**C13**) in which you want to insert the summation. - After that, to get the summation of the
**Sales**, type the following formula:

`=SUMIFS(E5:E11,B5:B11,"USA",C5:C11,"<>",D5:D11,"=")+SUMIFS(J5:J11,G5:G11,"Canada",H5:H11,"<>",I5:I11,"=")`

- Lastly, get the result by pressing the
**Enter**key (see screenshot).

**🔎**** How Does the Formula Work?**

**“<>”:**Indicates the**non-blank**cells.**“=”:**Denotes the**blank**cells.**SUMIFS(E5:E11,B5:B11,”USA”,C5:C11,”<>”,D5:D11,”=”):**Adds the**Sales**for**USA**with the**non-blank**cells in the**C5:C11**range and the**blank**cells in the**D5:D11**range.**SUMIFS(J5:J11,G5:G11,”Canada”,H5:H11,”<>”,I5:I11,”=”):**Sums up the**Sales**for**Canada**with the**non-blank**cells in the**H5:H11**range and the**blank**cells in the**I5:I11**range.**SUMIFS(E5:E11,B5:B11,”USA”,C5:C11,”<>”,D5:D11,”=”)+SUMIFS(J5:J11,G5:G11,”Canada”,H5:H11,”<>”,I5:I11,”=”):**Returns the summation of the two values gained from the two**SUMIFS**formula.

### 5. Use SUMIFS Function for Dynamic Criteria with Named Range

Here, we will use the **SUMIFS** function for **dynamic criteria** with a **named range**. For this, we will use the dataset (**B4:H11**) containing some **Countries**, **Fruits** and their respective **Sales** value. Moreover, we will use the two countries in the cells **C13** & **C14** to create the **dynamic criteria**. See the steps below to apply this example.

**Steps:**

- First, select the range
**C13:C14**to create the**dynamic criteria**. - Next, go to the
**Name Box**(see screenshot).

- Afterward, type any name (
**Countries**) in the**Name Box**for the**dynamic criteria**.

- Then, select cell
**C16**where you want to keep the output. - When you start inserting the formula and start typing
**dynamic criteria**(**Countries**) then you will see it as the suggestion (see screenshot). - Therefore, the formula is:

`=SUMIFS(D5:D11,B5:B11,Countries)+SUMIFS(H5:H11,F5:F11,Countries)`

- Finally, finish typing the formula to find the output.

- After pressing
**Ctrl + Shift + Enter**(for the older versions before**Excel 2019**), you will get the output in cells**C16**and**C17**. - Accordingly, the value in cell
**C16**is the summation of**Sales**for**Denmark**and the one in**C17**is for**France**.

**🔎**** How Does the Formula Work?**

**SUMIFS(D5:D11,B5:B11,Countries):**Adds the**Sales**for the range**B5:B11**based on the dynamic criteria (**Countries**).**SUMIFS(H5:H11,F5:F11,Countries):**Sums up the**Sales**for the range**H5:H11**based on the dynamic criteria named**Countries**.**SUMIFS(D5:D11,B5:B11,Countries)+SUMIFS(H5:H11,F5:F11,Countries):**Returns the summation of the two values gained from the two**SUMIFS**formula.

### 6. Apply Wildcard Character with SUMIFS Function for Multiple Ranges & Criteria

Finally, we will apply **wildcard characters** with **SUMIFS function** for multiple ranges and criteria. **Wildcard characters** are special types of **symbols** that are used to indicate one or more than one character. However, some examples of wildcard characters are **%** (percentage), ***** (asterisk), **?** (question mark), **[ ]** (open & close brackets) etc. In our case, we will use the asterisk (*****) symbol to represent a **letter**. For this example, we will use the dataset (**B4:H11**) below. Here, we will calculate the summation of the **Sales** values based on the **Countries** and a **letter** in the **Fruits**. We will represent the **letter** with the **asterisk** symbol. Let’s see the steps below to apply this example.

**Steps:**

- First of all, activate cell
**C13**. - Afterward, to find the summation, type the formula:

`=SUMIFS(D5:D11,B5:B11,"USA",C5:C11,"*s*")+SUMIFS(H5:H11,F5:F11,"Canada",G5:G11,"*g*")`

- In the end, press the
**Enter**key to get the result (see the screenshot below).

**🔎**** How Does the Formula Work?**

**SUMIFS(D5:D11,B5:B11,”USA”,C5:C11,”*s*”):**Adds the**Sales**for the**USA**with the**Fruits**containing ‘**s**’.**SUMIFS(H5:H11,F5:F11,”Canada”,G5:G11,”*g*”):**Sums up the**Sales**.**Canada**with the fruits containing ‘**g**’.**SUMIFS(D5:D11,B5:B11,”USA”,C5:C11,”*s*”)+SUMIFS(H5:H11,F5:F11,”Canada”,G5:G11,”*g*”):**Returns the summation of the two values gained from the two**SUMIFS**formula.
