# Using multiple IF statements with SUMIF

Options
edited 08/31/22

Hello,

I am trying to nest IF statements, and for each true IF statement I want to use SUMIF to get the totals for a specific value. Code below if giving me an unparseable error. Could anyone help me figure out why it won't parse?

=IF([List Item or Activity]@row = "Plan Total", SUMIF(Phase:Phase, "Plan", [Total Cost]:[Total Cost], IF([List Item or Activity]@row = “Discover Total", SUMIF(Phase:Phase, “Discover", [Total Cost]:[Total Cost]))

I hope you're well and safe!

Try something like this. (you were missing parenthesis and used slanted ". I assume you typed the formula in Word or similar)

=IF([List item or activity]@row = "Plan Total", SUMIF(Phase:Phase, "Plan", [Total cost]:[Total cost]), IF([List item or activity]@row = "Discover Total", SUMIF(Phase:Phase, "Discover", [Total cost]:[Total cost])))

Did that work/help?

I hope that helps!

Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
