Hi all

Hoping I can find some help on this formula, Trying to figure out how to create sum totals of PO value column at the top of each of the first 3 columns (FERG JOB #, FVLV#, JOB SHOP #) if information is present in those cells. contingent on any of the items in the drop down list from PO/SDR down being selected.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! IF any further information is need please let me know and I will answer to the best of my limited abilities. lol, Thank you

    Hello! So... you "can" do this BUT it would be difficult to keep updated as you add rows as you cannot use the syntax column:column to reference the entire column and would need to do something like column3:column50, where 50 would need to be updates as you add rows. What I recommend to you would be to create a summary sheet to collect the info or use the summary tab on the sheet.

    Also, I can help with building your formula, assuming you put this in your summary tab as it will not work on the top row since I don't know how far your sheet goes.

    =SUMIF([FVLV #]:[FVLV #], OR(@cell="PO/ SDR", @cell="Submitted", @cell="Revision Request", @cell="Approved", @cell="Released", @cell="Complete", @cell="Invoiced"), [Status]:[Status]

    Just change the bold to the other columns to sum.
