## Function name:

SUMIFS

## Category:

Mathematical

## Summary:

Returns the sum of the values of cells in a range that meets multiple criteria in multiple ranges.

## Syntax:

SUMIFS(**Func_Range**; **Range1**; **Criterion1**[; **Range2**; **Criterion2**][; … ; [**Range127**; **Criterion127**]])

## Returns:

Returns a real number which is the sum of those ranges meeting their corresponding criteria.

## Arguments:

**Func_Range** (required) It is a range of cells, a name of a named range or a label of a column or a row containing values for calculating the sum.

**Criterion 1** (required) A string expression representing a logical condition or a cell reference to such string expression. The expression can contain text, numbers, regular expressions or wildcards (if enabled in calculation options).

**Range 2** (Optional) **Range 2** and all the following mean the same as **Range 1**.

**Criterion 2** (Optional) **Criterion 2** and all the following mean the same as **Criterion 1**.

**Func_Range**and**Range 1**,**Range 2**... must have the same size, otherwise the function returns an error value.- The function can have up to 255 arguments, meaning that you can specify 127 criteria ranges and criteria for them.

## Additional details:

- The search supports wildcards or regular expressions. With regular expressions enabled, you can enter "all.*", for example to find the first location of "all" followed by any characters. If you want to search for a text that is also a regular expression, you must either precede every character with a "\" character, or enclose the text into \Q...\E. You can switch the automatic evaluation of wildcards or regular expression on and off in
**Tools > Options > LibreOffice Calc > Calculate**.

- When using functions where one or more arguments are search criteria strings that represents a regular expression, the first attempt is to convert the string criteria to numbers. For example, ".0" will convert to 0.0 and so on. If successful, the match will not be a regular expression match but a numeric match. However, when switching to a locale where the decimal separator is not the dot makes the regular expression conversion work. To force the evaluation of the regular expression instead of a numeric expression, use some expression that can not be misread as numeric, such as ".[0]" or ".\0" or "(?i).0".

- The logical relation between criteria can be defined as logical AND (conjunction). In other words, if and only if all given criteria are met, a value from the corresponding cell of the given
**Func_Range**is taken into calculation.

- If a cell contains TRUE, it is treated as 1, if a cell contains FALSE – as 0 (zero).

## Examples:

Consider the following table

A | B | C | |
---|---|---|---|

1 | Product Name | Sales | Revenue |

2 | pencil | 20 | 65 |

3 | pen | 35 | 85 |

4 | notebook | 20 | 190 |

5 | book | 17 | 180 |

6 | pencil-case | not | not |

In all examples below, ranges for calculation contain the row 6, which is ignored because it contains text.

### Simple usage

Formula | Description | Returns |
---|---|---|

=SUMIFS(B2:B6;B2:B6;">=20") | Calculates the sum of values of the range B2:B6 that are greater than or equal to 20. Here the fifth row does not meet the criterion. | 75 |

=SUMIFS(C2:C6;B2:B6;">=20";C2:C6;">70") | Calculates the sum of values of the range C2:C6 that are greater than 70 and correspond to cells of the B2:B6 range with values greater than or equal to 20. Here the second and the fifth rows do not meet at least one criterion. | 275 |

### Using regular expressions and nested functions

Formula | Description | Returns |
---|---|---|

=SUMIFS(C2:C6;B2:B6;">"&MIN(B2:B6);B2:B6;"<"&MAX(B2:B6)) | Calculates the sum of values of the range C2:C6 that correspond to all values of the range B2:B6 except its minimum and maximum. Here the third and the fifth rows do not meet at least one criterion. | 255 |

=SUMIFS(C2:C6;A2:A6;"pen.*";B2:B6;"<"&MAX(B2:B6)) | Calculates the sum of values of the range C2:C6 that correspond to all cells of the A2:A6 range starting with "pen" and to all cells of the B2:B6 range except its maximum. Here only second row meets all criteria. | 65 |

### Reference to a cell as a criterion

Formula | Description | Returns |
---|---|---|

=SUMIFS(C2:C6;A2:A6;E2&".*";B2:B6;"<"&MAX(B2:B6)) where E2 = pen | If you need to change a criterion easily, you may want to specify it in a separate cell and use a reference to this cell in the condition of the SUMIFS function. Here the link to the cell is substituted with its content. | 65 |
