# SUMIFS Formula

✭✭✭✭✭✭

Hi

I am trying to create a formula that will sum the No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job based on the Job Type. This is what I'm using currently:

However, its' bringing back zero when you can clearly see a CD Extraction Job Type in row two. I'm assuming it's because it is a drop down but, there will only ever be one option selected. What am I missing?

=SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "CD Creation", [Job Type]:[Job Type], "CD Extraction", [Job Type]:[Job Type], "Print & Post", [Job Type]:[Job Type], "USB Creation", [Job Type]:[Job Type], "USB Extraction")

I've searched other posts but can't quite find the answer - I know it's something super simple!

TIA

Cheryl

I hope you're well and safe!

You have to sum them up one by one and add them together.

Try something like this.

=SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "CD Creation") + SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "CD Extraction") + SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "Print & Post") + SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "USB Creation") + SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "USB Extraction")

Did that work/help?

I hope that helps!

Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

Try this.

=SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "CD Creation", [Date Received]:[Date Received], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = MONTH(TODAY())) + SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "CD Extraction", [Date Received]:[Date Received], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = MONTH(TODAY())) + SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "Print & Post", [Date Received]:[Date Received], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = MONTH(TODAY())) + SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "USB Creation", [Date Received]:[Date Received], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = MONTH(TODAY())) + SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "USB Extraction", [Date Received]:[Date Received], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = MONTH(TODAY()))

Did that work?

That's worked! Thank you. I had tried that before, but I think it was because I hadn't put spaces between my + that caused the issue.

An extra question - If I wanted to narrow it down further to include only those for the current month, how would I do that?

Thanks as always for your help.

Excellent!

Happy to help!

Try something like this.

=SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "CD Creation", Month:Month, IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = MONTH(TODAY())) + SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "CD Extraction", Month:Month, IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = MONTH(TODAY())) + SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "Print & Post", Month:Month, IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = MONTH(TODAY())) + SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "USB Creation", Month:Month, IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = MONTH(TODAY())) + SUMIFS([No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job]:[No. of Minutes Taken to Complete Job], [Job Type]:[Job Type], "USB Extraction", Month:Month, IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = MONTH(TODAY()))

I'm getting #UNPARESABLE error. Is this because it isn't looking up the Date Received column?
