To get the sum of all numbers, you can use the SUM function. If you need to get the sum of the numbers that are greater than a number, please use the SUMIF function.
Example: You are working with data that includes the employee's gender, age, and salaries, and you need to get the sum of the salaries over $80,000.
The employee's gender is in column A, the age is in column B, and the employees' salaries are in column C.
Formula 1: To get total salaries over $80,000, please use the following formula:
= SUMIF(C2:C11,">80000"), the result returns $724,000.00
Formula 2: To get the total salaries for those over 30 years old, please use the following formula:
= SUMIF(B2:B11,">30",C2:C11), the result returns $598,000.00
Formula 3: To get the total salaries for those over cell C6, please use the following formula:
= SUMIF(C2:C11,">"&C6), the result returns $561,000.00
Notes: The SUMIF function
The SUMIF function adds all the numbers with the criteria you specified.
=SUMIF(range, criteria, [sum_range])
- The range is required, which is the criteria range.
- The criterion is required, the criteria for the sum.
- Sum_range is optional, the cells to add together.
