Formula to calculate the number of minutes request for a specific date and review board


I have a sheet that is an agenda submission for teams, and then another with a list of dates that calculates how much time is left for a specific date and review board (Primary Column). I have three review boards on the same date, so I want this sheet to pull only the Meeting Duration (Duration) for topics going to one specific review board. I did the below and am getting the #INCORRECT ARGUMENT SET.

Any suggestions?

=SUMIFS({Review Board}, [Primary Column]@row, {Date 2}, [Start Date]@row, {{Duration})

    Hi @Leann Gibson

    With a SUMIFS plural, the structure is actually opposite to a SUMIF singular. In SUMIFS, you'll want to list the Range to SUM at the very beginning of the formula instead of at the end.

    Try something like this:

    =SUMIFS({Duration}, {Review Board}, [Primary Column]@row, {Date 2}, [Start Date]@row)

    I also took out an extra { that you had around Duration. Let me know if this works for you!
