I'm trying to calculate total cost of multiple criteria and receive the #unparseable.
I need to pull total cost savings that are within a specific quarter. In one sheet I have captured a column that has a dropdown lists Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4 where each row shows the savings for that particular line item. I now need to capture total sum of cost savings within each quarter.

Hi @CrystalA
The @row reference is if you're looking for a value in a cell. It looks like you just want to find "Q1" and have typed that into your formula. If so, then there's no need for @row!
Try this:
=SUMIFS({FY24 Global HR Ops HC Change Report Range 5}, {FY24 Global HR Ops HC Change Report Range 4}, "Q1")
Cheers,
Genevieve

That worked, thank you!

Hey @CrystalA
A copy of your starting formula would be helpful. Is the formula in the same sheet as the data, or is the data in a different sheet.
Assuming same sheet
=SUMIFS([cost savings column]:[cost savings column], [drop down column]:[drop down column], [dropdown column]@row)
If the data is in a different sheet:
=SUMIFS({cost savings column from source sheet}, {drop down column from source sheet}, [dropdown column]@row)
*In either formula, instead of [dropdown column]@row you can substitute the specific quarter designation using the abbreviation enclosed in double quotes. ex. "Q1"
will this work for you?

Hi Kelly, thank you for getting back. The formula I started off with is below. The data being pulled is in a different sheet. I tried the one you had captured and I still get the #UNPARSEABLE.
I'm needing to calculate what the cost savings would be for the timing column, grouping each quarter. If I could get the formula for Q1 then I can apply the same for the remaining quarters to track on a dashboard. Thank you for your help.
=SUMIFS({FY24 Global HR Ops HC Change Report Range 5}, {FY24 Global HR Ops HC Change Report Range 4}, "Q1"@row)
