# sumif for multi conditions. i.e sumif(A1:A10,"Jon" and B1:B10,"A"

How can I sum values in my third column by specifying conditions in my first
two?

e.g. Column A has values "Jon", "Max", "Mary", "Tom"
Column B has values "A" and "B".
Column C has values for each.

I need to sum C values where column A shows "Jon" and column B shows "B".
I've tried =sumif(AND(A1:A10, "Jon"),(B1:B10, "B"), C1:C10) with no luck.
the usual sumif should have the format =sumif(range to be assessed,
Criteria, range to be summed)

Try this:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(A\$1:A\$10="Jon"),--(B\$1:B\$10="B"),C\$1:C\$10)

I hope that you noticed I missed a trailing bracket

=SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A10="Jon"),--(B1:B10=B"),C1:C10)

I saw that, but Excel would have corrected it.

got it!
this is a really good function, and thanks for pointing me towards that
information website, can see it coming in handy.

I thought my excel skills were fairly good, but this is described as a basic
function!

Thanks all

It is basic in its basic form, but what you see there is stretching it well
beyond the basic in many instances,
