# excel – SUMIFS with nested AND, OR, and inequalities

Questions:

The following formula doesn’t work:

``````=SUMIFS(JOBS_NUMBER,JOB_TYPE,\$A10,MONTH_CLAIMED,(AND(OR(">"&\$H\$7,"="& \$H\$7), OR("<"&\$J\$7,"=" &\$J\$7))),SECTOR, "=Residential")
``````

I’m trying to sum the number of jobs:

• if the range JOB_TYPE matches,
• if the MONTH_CLAIMED is greater than or equal to `H7` (which contains the start of the fiscal year) AND less than or equal to `J7` (which is the end of the fiscal year), and
• the SECTOR must be `Residential`.

The embedded And(OR(inequalities are the problem, since the following test formula returns `0`:

``````=SUMIF(Z8, AND(OR(">"&\$H\$7,"="&\$H\$7),OR("<"&\$J\$7,"="&\$J\$7)),Y8)
``````

where `Z8` is a date between `H7` and `J7`, and `Y8` is `1`.

I’d appreciate help with correcting the syntax or possible alternatives to accomplish the same task.

Assuming,the required Job Type is in A10, and you wish to sum relevant values in ColumnY rows 7 to 12 inclusive, this may help:

``````=SUMIFS(Y7:Y12,JOB_TYPE,A10,Z7:Z12,">="&H7,Z7:Z12,"<="&J7,Sector,"Residential")
``````

However the above does assume compatibility between MONTH_CLAIMED and dates elsewhere.

``````=sumifs(Y8, Z8, ">="&\$H\$7, Z8, "<="&\$J\$7)
