Hello Group!
I have a question relate to range matching and sum up, please help!
Question:
A1:A2 = A, B
B1:B5 = B, C, B, D, A
C1:C5 = 1, 3, 4, 2, 30

I want to write a formula for D1 to sum C1:C5 base on the matching value
in B1:B5 with A1:A2. In this example, we need to find all A, B values in
B1:B5 and then sum C1:C5 coressponding to these A, B found in B1:B5. The
result for this example is = 1+4+30 = 35.

Thank you for all helps !.

Hi Alan

How about:

=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(B1:B5,A1:A2,C1:C5))

or

=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(B1:B5,{"A","B"},C1:C5))

or


=SUMPRODUCT((B1:B5=A1)+(B1:B5=A2),C1:C5)

All the Best

The following accomplishes your task

Cell D1 : =SUMIF($B$1:$B$5,A1,C1:C5)+SUMIF($B$1:$B$5,A2,C1:C5)

Hope this helps.
