    Hi Kaleb,

    Try this: =SUMIF(Invoice:Invoice, <>"", [Column to Sum]:[Column to Sum])

    Also, when writing formulas, be sure you that all parentheses are pairs (you can't have the opening one without the closing one and vice versa). In your formula, you have four opening parens but only one closing paren).

    Hope this helps!
