# Formula optimization

edited 12/09/19

Hello, I am trying to optimize this formula, do you have any idea?

Thank you

Chi

=SUMIFS({Line Value}, {PE}, [PE Project Engineer]@row, {Status}, " ", {Backlog - Sales Orders - RTM Status}, <>"Complete") + SUMIFS({Line Value}, {PE}, [PE Project Engineer]@row, {Status}, "Approved", {Backlog - Sales Orders - RTM Status}, <>"Complete") + SUMIFS({Line Value}, {PE}, [PE Project Engineer]@row, {Status}, "In Progress", {Backlog - Sales Orders - RTM Status}, <>"Complete") + SUMIFS({Line Value}, {PE}, [PE Project Engineer]@row, {Status}, "Not Started", {Backlog - Sales Orders - RTM Status}, <>"Complete") + SUMIFS({Line Value}, {PE}, [PE Project Engineer]@row, {Status}, "OFA", {Backlog - Sales Orders - RTM Status}, <>"Complete") + SUMIFS({Line Value}, {PE}, [PE Project Engineer]@row, {Status}, "Pending", {Backlog - Sales Orders - RTM Status}, <>"Complete") + SUMIFS({Line Value}, {PE}, [PE Project Engineer]@row, {Status}, "RTM'd", {Backlog - Sales Orders - RTM Status}, <>"Complete")

Hi Chi,

Are all status options included in the formula above?

Try something like this.

=SUMIFS({Line Value}; {PE}; [PE Project Engineer]@row; {Status}; OR(@cell = ""; @cell = "Approved"; @cell = "In Progress"; @cell = "Not Started"; @cell = "OFA"; @cell = "Pending"; @cell = "RTM'd"); {Backlog  Sales Orders  RTM Status}; <>"Complete")

The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.

=SUMIFS({Line Value}, {PE}, [PE Project Engineer]@row, {Status}, OR(@cell = "", @cell = "Approved", @cell = "In Progress", @cell = "Not Started", @cell = "OFA", @cell = "Pending", @cell = "RTM'd"), {Backlog  Sales Orders  RTM Status}, <>"Complete")

Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

Did it work?

Have a fantastic weekend!
