From: yawnmoth on 24 Mar 2010 13:22 If SQL queries could be performed in Excel, I'd do "SELECT SUM(h) WHERE e = 'eBay Payment Sent'". Since SQL doesn't support SQL, however, I need to try something else. The following didn't work: =SUMIF(E2:E542,"=eBay Payment Sent",H2:H542) Any ideas what will work? Thanks! From: T. Valko on 24 Mar 2010 13:46 >The following didn't work:>=SUMIF(E2:E542,"=eBay Payment Sent",H2:H542) What does "didn't work" mean? You get an error? An incorrect result? No result? The formula syntax is correct so that eliminates the formula as a problem. So, that means there's a problem with the data. See if this works... =SUMPRODUCT(--(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("eBay Payment Sent",E2:E542))),H2:H542) -- Biff Microsoft Excel MVP "yawnmoth" wrote in message news:e12de667-67d2-44ed-8dc6-e92007315ab2(a)15g2000yqi.googlegroups.com...> If SQL queries could be performed in Excel, I'd do "SELECT SUM(h) > WHERE e = 'eBay Payment Sent'".

The data in column H could be text that looks like a number. Put the number 1 in an unused cell and then copy it. Select you data in column H and then Edit / Paste Special / Values / Multiply / OK. From: T. Valko on 24 Mar 2010 14:42 >I get zero in both cases. Ok, we're narrowing it down! What result do you get with this formula? =COUNT(H2:H542) That will count only *true Excel numbers* in the range. If you get a result of 0 then your numbers aren't true numeric values. -- Biff Microsoft Excel MVP "yawnmoth" wrote in message news:805ffc52-9e1f-4597-99c9-0e0b66a0a6be(a)z4g2000yqa.googlegroups.com...
