Excel SUMIF Function

Excel SUMIF Function


SUMIF is a function to sum cells that meet a single criteria. SUMIF can be used to sum cells based on dates, numbers, and text that match specific criteria. SUMIF supports logical operators (>,<,<>,=) and wildcards (*,?) for partial matching.


Sum numbers in a range that meet supplied criteria

Return value 

The sum of values supplied.


=SUMIF (range, criteria, [sum_range])


  • range – The range of cells that you want to apply the criteria against.
  • criteria – The criteria used to determine which cells to add.
  • sum_range – [optional] The cells to add together. If sum_range is omitted, the cells in range are added together instead.

Usage notes 

When sum_range is omitted, the cells in range will be summed.

Text criteria, or criteria that includes math symbols, must be enclosed in double quotation marks (“).

Numeric criteria can be supplied without quotation marks.

The wildcard characters ? and * can be used in criteria. A question mark matches any one character and an asterisk matches any sequence of characters.

To find a literal question mark or asterisk, use a tilde (~) in front question mark or asterisk (i.e. ~?, ~*).
