How do I use SUMIFs, with multiple criterion ranges, but for 1 of those ranges, multi criterion?


The Formula that is partially working now is:

=SUMIFS([Estimated Hours]:[Estimated Hours], Status:Status, "Done Feb", Project:Project, "Practice Bootcamps", Owner:Owner, "Melissa Robson")

The thing I am trying to add though is multiple criteria in the Status criterion range. Right now it is only pulling "Done Feb" but I want it to also sum up Estimated Hours in "Prioritized" "In Progress" and "Blocked" as well.

I've been searching but not finding a solution for this particular instance.

    @Mrobson To have the formula consider rows with various values in the same range, you can use the OR function within the SUMIFS. The OR function tells the formula to consider a value true if it's any of the included values:

    =SUMIFS([Estimated Hours]:[Estimated Hours], Status:Status, OR(@cell = "Done Feb", @cell = "Prioritized", @cell = "In Progress", @cell = "Blocked"), Project:Project, "Practice Bootcamps", Owner:Owner, "Melissa Robson")

    Make sure that you remember to close off the OR with an end parentheses so that it is self-contained as the criteria for the Status:Status range.
