# excel – SUMIFS should consider both blank & not blank values.with single formula

Questions: Hello All,
Below is the situation where Product Column is having 2 values:”A” & blank, where product is not know. I’m trying to calculate how total qty of Product A & unknown product.

I’m using SUMIFS condition, but formula doesn’t consider blank cells (unknown product). How to consider blank cells, so that total qty would be “11” for unknown product.

Formula used
=SUMIFS(B:B,A:A,A:A) I a common formula that can be used through column D or E.

The following formula solves your problem:

`=IF(ISBLANK(E2),SUMIFS(B:B,A:A,""),SUMIFS(B:B,A:A,E2))`

I reproduced it with your data and it returned 11 for the unknown products.

This works well, please try it:

• `\$D\$1:\$D\$2&""` as i understand it will fill a `vbnullstring value` type instead of empty cell, and it is a condition for countif to count cells with `value = ""`

.

``````=SUMIF(\$A\$1:\$A\$7,INDEX(\$D\$1:\$D\$7&"",ROW(D1)),\$B\$1:\$B\$7)
`````` I went for summing for “A” and “<>A” ie not “A”, like so: In “Criteria” column `D2` enter : “A” and `D3` enter : =””
In “Total Qty” column `E2`, enter formula and copied down to `E3` :
``````=SUMIF(A:A,D2,B:B)
