(Excel examples for Beginners)
In this end-to-end excel example, you will learn – Excel formula for Beginners – How to Sum if one criteria multiple columns in Excel.
To sum multiple columns conditionally, using one criteria, you can use a formula based on the SUMPRODUCT function. In the example show, the formula in H5 is:
How this formula works
This first expression in SUMPRODUCT is the criteria, checking if cells in B5:B10 contain “red”. The result is an array of TRUE FALSE values like this:
This is multiplied by the values in range C5:E10:
The result inside SUMPRODUCT is:
which returns 24, the sum of all values in C5:E10 where B5:B10=”red”.
