Data Analysis Spreadsheet Basics Spreadsheet Functions & Shortcuts The SUMIF Function

Can you select multiple criteria for a SUMIF?

Let's say I wanted the total revenue for sandals and tennis shoes, could I write that out in one function? Or would I need to add two separate functions?

The answer depends on the program you're using. In Excel, you can do this with a SUMIFS using an array constant, and then wrapping it in a SUM. The following answer does not work in Google Docs

=SUM(SUMIFS(C:C,A:A,{"Jeans","Sandals"}))

To do what you want to do in Google docs or in Excel without using an array constant, you would need to sum 2 formulas:

=SUM(SUMIF(A:A, "Jeans",C:C),SUMIF(A:A,"Sandals",C:C))
