# Help! Not sure what formula to use???

edited 01/29/21

I have one column labeled, "Earn "C" or Better?" which is a checkbox column. If the student earns a C or better, our financial aid department awards them the money in the column labeled, "How much is the student receiving?"

I need to summarize my sheet to show the total amount of dollars dispersed to students receiving a C or better.

So it should be something like...add the amount of how much is the student receiving if the c or better is checked.

The function you're looking for is SUMIFS - which does exactly what you're asking.

It has the syntax of (range to be summed, criteria1-range, criteria1, criteria2-range, criteria2, criteria3-range, criteria3, etc).

=SUMIFS([How much is student receiving?]:[How much is student receiving?], [Earn "C" or Better?]:[Earn "C" or Better?], 1)

Does this work for you?
