SUMIFS - Multiple criteria syntax guidance

I am am struggling to get SUMIFS working with multiple criteria values.  I want to sum data based on Month column and then by probability column.  Here are a couple methods I have tried but I cannot seem to figure out what I need to do in order to make it work.


=SUMIFS(Month:Month, "March", Probability:Probability, "75%", Revenue:Revenue)


=SUMIFS(Month:Month, "March", Revenue:Revenue, Probability:Probability, "75%")


Ideally I would love to sum all rows that equal march and greater than 75%.    Secondly I would like to sum if it is 50-75%.  


Any ideas?

    Small update...  I got past the "invalid argument set" error but I still cannot get it to return a value.  


    =SUMIFS(Revenue:Revenue, Month:Month, "March", Probability:Probability, >="75")


    =SUMIFS(Revenue:Revenue, Month:Month, "March", Probability:Probability, "75%")

    I assume your [Month] has the text "March" in it and you aren't looking at a date directly.

    I also assume your [Probabilty] column is formatted for percentage.


    If those are true, then this formula:


    =SUMIFS(Revenue:Revenue, Month:Month, "March", Probability:Probability, >0.75)


    will sum the Revenue column for March and probability greater than 75%


    and this 


    =SUMIFS(Revenue:Revenue, Month:Month, "March", Probability:Probability, >=0.5, Probability:Probability, <=0.75)


    will sum the Revenue column for March and probability greater than or equal to 50% and less than or equal to 75%


    Hope this helps.

    Brilliant!  Thank you, that was exactly what I needed to make it work. Cheers!
