SUMPRODUCT is an extremely resourceful function with many purposes. When you are comparing data between two or more ranges and calculating with multiple criteria, The SUMPRODUCT function is your first choice. It has the unique ability to handle arrays in smart and elegant ways. Often we need to use SUMPRODUCT IF or conditional SUMPRODUCT to compare between columns with given criteria and to find the result. Today in this article, we will discuss the SUMPRODUCT IF function and some other alternative approaches to SUMPRODUCT IF function.

**Excel SUMPRODUCT function**

Technically, the **“SUMPRODUCT”** function returns the sum of the values of corresponding arrays or ranges. Normally, the default operation is multiplication, but addition, subtraction, and division can also be done.

**Syntax**

The syntax of the SUMPRODUCT function is simple and direct.

**=SUMPRODUCT(array1, [array2], [array3], …)**

**Argument**

**[array1]:**The first array or ranges of cells whose components you want to multiply and then add**[ array2], [array3]…:**Array arguments 2 to 255 whose values you want to multiply and then add.

**SUMPRODUCT IF Formula: 2 Types**

In Excel, there is no built-in** “SUMPRODUCT IF”** function but you can use this as an array formula by combining the **“SUMPRODUCT”** and the** “IF”** function. Let’s discuss this formula.

**1. ****SUMPRODUCT IF with One Criteria**

We can use the **“SUMPRODUCT IF”** formula with one criterion. Follow these steps to learn

**Step-1:**

Consider a data table where some fruit Items are given with **“Region”**, **“Qty”**, and **“Price”**. We will find out the total price of some items.

**Step-2:**

Create another table anywhere in the worksheet where you want to get the total price of the item. We choose **“Cherry”**, **“Apple”,** **“Plum”** items.

**Step-3:**

Apply the **“SUMPRODUCT IF”** formula in cell **“H4”**. The format of this formula is

**=SUMPRODUCT(IF(criteria range=criteria, values range1*values range2))**

Insert the values into the formula.

Where,

**Criteria_range**is**$C$4:$C$20.****The Criteria**is**Values_range1**is**$D$4:$D$20.****Values_range2**is**$E$4:$E$20.**

Apply this formula as an array formula by pressing **“CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER”** simultaneously.

**Step-4:**

We got our total price. Now apply the same formula for the rest of the items.

**2. ****SUMPRODUCT IF with Multiple Criteria in Different Column**

We will use the same formula for multiple criteria.

**Step-1:**

Let’s add another criteria **“Region”** in table 2. In this case, we want to find the total price of **“Cherry” **from the **“North America” **region and **“Apple”** from the **“Asia” **region.

**Step-2:**

Now apply the **“SUMPRODUCT IF”** formula. Insert the values into the formula.

**=SUMPRODUCT(IF($B$4:$B$20=G4,IF($C$4:$C$20=H4,$D$4:$D$20*$E$4:$E$20)))**

Where,

**Criteria_range**is**$B$4:$B$20,****$C$4:$C$20.****The Criteria**is**G4, H4.****Values_range1**is**$D$4:$D$20.****Values_range2**is**$E$4:$E$20.**

Apply this formula by pressing** “CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER” **simultaneously.

**Step-3:**

Our value is here. Now do the same for the** “Apple” **item.

**Alternative approaches to SUMPRODUCT IF Formula**

There are some other approaches to derive the previous results. An alternative way to calculate the** “SUMPRODUCT IF”** formula is to insert the criteria within the **“SUMPRODUCT” **function as an array using **double unary (–) **to converts the** “TRUE”** or **“FALSE”** into **“1”** or **“0”**.

**1. ****SUMPRODUCT If with One Condition**

**Step-1:**

We will consider the previous example in this case. We will find the total price of **“Mango”** from the list.

**Step-2:**

Apply the conditional **“SUMPRODUCT” **formula

The final formula is

**=SUMPRODUCT(–(C4:C20=G4),D4:D20,E4:E20)**

Where,

**Array1**is**(–(C4:C20=G4).****[Array2]**is**D4:D20.****[Array3]**is**E4:E20.**

Press **“Enter”.** Our result is here.

**Explanation: **

** **

We will now explain how this conditional **“SUMPRODUCT”** function works

**Step-1:**

When we enter the **“–(C4:C20=G4)”** into the formula this double unary (–) converts the **“TRUE”** or **“FALSE”** into **“1”** or** “0”**. Select this **“–(C4:C20=G4)”** portion in your worksheet and press **“F9”** to see the underlying values.

**{0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,0,1,1,0,0,0,1}**

**Step-2:**

Now if we break down the arrays into values the actual formula will look like this,

**=SUMPRODUCT({0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,0,1,1,0,0,0,1},{20,50,100,50,500,80,90,56,60,80,100,40,45,25,35,45,90},{15,20,2,5,12,10,15,9,20,30,5,30,25,10,10,20,15})**

**Step-3:**

The first array will multiply with the second then the second array will multiply with the third array. Follow this picture

That is how this conditional **“SUMPRODUCT”** works.

**2. ****SUMPRODUCT IF with Multiple Condition in Different Column**

**Step-1:**

In the following example, we will find out the total price of **“Cherry”** from the **“North America” **region.

**Step-2:**

Apply the formula. The final form of this formula is,

**=SUMPRODUCT(–(B4:B20=G4), –(C4:C20=H4),D4:D20,E4:E20)**

Where,

**Array1**is**(–(C4:C20=G4),–(C4:C20=H4).****[Array2]**is**D4:D20.****[Array3]**is**E4:E20.**

Press** “Enter”**. Our result is achieved.

**3. ****SUMPRODUCT IF with OR Logic**

We can add **“OR”** logic to our formula to make this formula more dynamic.

**Step-1:**

Let’s say, we need to get the total price of **“Mango”** and **“Cherry”** from the data table.

**Step-2:**

Apply the** “SUMPRODUCT”** formula with** “OR”** and insert the values.

The formula is

**=SUMPRODUCT(–((C4:C20=G4)+(C4:C20=H4)>0),D4:D20,E4:E20)**

Where,

**Array1**is**–((C4:C20=G4)+(C4:C20=H4)>0).**Here**G4**is**“Mango”**and**H4**is**“Cherry”**. This array counts the total number of**“Mango”**and**“Cherry”**in the data table.**[Array2]**is**D4:D20.****[Array3]**is**E4:E20.**

Press **“Enter” **to get the total price of the products.

**4. ****SUMPRODUCT IF with Multiple AND/OR Criteria**

In this case, we will apply Or logic with multiple conditions.

**Step-1:**

In the following example, we need to find the total price of **“Cherry”** and **“Mango” **from **“Asia” **and **“Europe”** regions.

**Step-2:**

To get the result we will now apply the formula with AND/OR logic. The formula is

**=SUMPRODUCT(–((B4:B20=G4)+(B4:B20=H4)>0),–((C4:C20=I4)+(C4:C20=J4)>0),D4:D20,E4:E20)**

Where,

**Array1**is**–((B4:B20=G4)+(B4:B20=H4)>0),–((C4:C20=I4)+(C4:C20=J4)>0).**Here**B4:B20 is “Region”**Column,**G4**and**H4**is**“Asia”**and**“Europe”**.Similarly,**C4:C20**is**“Item”**column,**I4**and**J4**is**“Cherry”**and**“Mango”.****[Array2]**is**D4:D20.****[Array3]**is**E4:E20.**

Press** “Enter”** to get the total price.

**Quick Notes **

✅Arrays in the SUMPRODUCT formula must have the same number of rows and columns. If not, you get the** #VALUE! **Error.

✅The** “SUMPRODUCT”** function treats non-numeric values as zeros. If you have any non-numeric values in your formula the answer will be **“0”.**

✅ Since the** “SUMPRODUCT IF”** formula is an array formula your need to press **“CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER”** simultaneously to apply the formula.

✅The **“SUMPRODUCT”** function does not support wildcard characters.

**Conclusion**

Today we discussed the** “SUMPRODUCT IF”** formula and some other alternative conditional **“SUMPRODUCT”** formula in this article. Hope this article is useful to you when you are facing problems. If you have any confusion, you are welcome to comment.
