SUMIFS Statements

Hi I have been having a lot of trouble getting SUMIFS statement to work always having the result unparseable - 

=SUMIFS(FTE2:FTE589,Fund Source2:Fund Source589,"MEMS",Unit2:Unit589,"Aquatic Environment")

I have tried multiple times with just the column title and also selecting cells - I can get the statement to work perfectly if I export the sheet to Excel - =SUMIFS(C2:C20,A2:A20,"MEMS",B2:B20,"Aquatic Environment") - Can anyone see what it is I am doing wrong in the SMARTSHEET?

    Try something like this.

    You're only missing the square brackets for when the column name is more than one word, or it has a number or special character in it.

    =SUMIFS(FTE2:FTE589; [Fund Source]2:[Fund Source]589; "MEMS"; Unit2:Unit589; "Aquatic Environment")

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

    =SUMIFS(FTE2:FTE589, [Fund Source]2:[Fund Source]589, "MEMS", Unit2:Unit589, "Aquatic Environment")

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

    Did it work?

    Hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic day!
