# Sum if cell is equal to value

In this article, we will learn about how to get the SUM value if cell value is equal to a specific value in Excel.

In simple words, when working with long data sheets, sometimes we need to extract the sum of values where cell is equal to the value like getting the sum of monthly expense where just a specific day’s amount is required.

Let’s get the Generic Formula:

=SUMIF (range, “value”, sum_range)

range : condition on the array
value : value to match
sum_range : range where sum is needed.

Let’s understand this function using it in an example.

Here we have Order from different regions with their respective quantity and Price. We need to get the total Price for region East.

Use the formula:

=SUMIF(B2:B26,"East",D2:D26)

Explanation:
B2:B26 : range where formula matches values.
"East" : the formula now accepts all East.
A2:A26 : sum_range where amount adds up.

The formula drops down to

=SUMIF(
{"East";"East";"West";"East";"East";"East";"East";"West";"East";"East";
"East";"East";"East";"West";"East";"East";"East";"East";"West";"West";"East";"West";"East";
"East";"West"},
"East",
{58.41;303.63;108.46;153.34;82.84;95.58;520.01;90.27;177;37.8;78.48;57.97;97.72;
77.88;40.71;36.45;93.74;349.32;78.54;93.72;158.95;85.2;107.97;139.6;160.82})
This formula adds up all the values corresponding to all the values “East”. As you can see this formula returns the sum ( \$ 2589.52 ) if cell is equal to a value (East).
