# Formula to calculate total lost

Options

Hello and good morning. If someone would not mind providing the correct formula for what I'm trying to accomplish, I would be very grateful. Thank you in advance for any help you would be willing to provide. I have three columns, Sales stage, Forecast Amount & Total Lost. I need a formula that will reference the Sales stage column and if the Sales stage is 5 - Lost, calculate all lost totals in the Forecast Amount column and show the amount in the Total Lost column. I appreciate your time and support. Have a great day.

Would you want this on a row by row basis, or are you looking more for a grand total?

Mr. Paul Newcome,

I need to calculate the grand total of all lost in entries as they are added to the column. I hope this makes sense.

Thank you kindly for your help. Very much appreciated.

Glad you were able to get it figured. What did you end up using?

I personally would have gone with

=SUMIFS([Forecast Amount]:[Forecast Amount], [Sales Stage]:[Sales Stage], @cell = "5 - Lost")
