=SUMIF Formula

I'm looking for some guidance with this formula. I can't seem to get the numbers to add up if the condition is met. Essentially if the cell is "No" a number should be added and the number is different based on the column. Those numbers should then be added for a total.

Here's what I'm working with...

=SUMIF([Column]1 = "No", 4, 0:IF([Column]2 = "No", 7, 0:([Column]3 = "No", 1, 0)))

So in theory with this formula, if all three cells were "No" I would have a total of 12.

    Hi Logan,

    Not sure I follow, but here goes!

    Do you want to sum the whole column or just the specific row or specific cells?

    Try something like this.

    =IF([Column 1]@row = "No"; 4) + IF([Column 2]@row = "No"; 7) + IF([Column 4]@row = "No"; 1)

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

    =IF([Column 1]@row = "No", 4) + IF([Column 2]@row = "No", 7) + IF([Column 4]@row = "No", 1)

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

    Would that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
