I need help summing up the value of one column based on the status of another

Options

I have two sheets I am using— one with all my data, reference points, and another with all my formulas.

I want to sum up all the numbers in my 'Annual Revenue' column based on the Status column (completed, in progress, etc) of that same row.

I want to use this formula in my other sheet which holds all formulas and data. i am using the below formula but keep getting UNPARSABLE:

=SUMIF({Total Revenue}:{Total Revenue}, {StatusRange 1}:{StatusRange 1}, "Completed")

Please help! I've given myself a headache trying to figure this out.

Thank you in advance!

    you were almost there. When you create a column reference as a cross sheet reference you don’t need the : functionality. Instead this should work.

    =SUMIFs({Total Revenue}, {StatusRange 1}, "Completed")
