# Create a formula in the summary that totals \$ from an amount column when another column is checked?

Options

I am building an expense reimbursement sheet, and have used the associated template as a start. I need to create a formula that references and totals an [amount] column for all items that are unchecked in a separate column [reimbursed completed].

I keep getting #unpareseable errors.

Give this a try:

=SUMIFS(Amount:Amount, [Reimbursed Completed]:[Reimbursed Completed], @cell <> 1)

It should be something along the lines of:

=SUMIF([Reimbursed Completed]:[Reimbursed Completed], 0, [Amount]:[Amount])

If you're still getting errors or have any problems/questions then let us know.

I am trying to do something similar, and I tried using the above formula but I can't get it to work. I have a Number of Repeated Tests column with numbers (number of tests per row can exceed 1) in it, and a Department column that can have each Department listed more than once. I need to sum up the total number of tests per Department. Could you please help me? This is what I tried

=SUMIFS({OR Notification Tracker # of Tests Repeated}, {Department Name}:{Department Name], @cell = "HDRL")

but I'm getting UNPARSEABLE

Thanks,

Ashley

@Ashley McAdoo Are you able to provide a screenshot for context?

Here's the 2 columns. There's about 8 drop down choices for the Section Helper column and the numbers are of course unlimited. I'm trying to a metrics table like the 2nd attachment.

Thank you,

@Ashley McAdoo If it is on a different sheet, give this a try:

=SUMIFS({OR Notification Tracker # of Tests Repeated}, {Department Name}, @cell = "HDRL")
