 # How to Sum if cell is not equal to value in Excel

In this article, we will learn about how to get the SUM value if cell value not 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 except where cell is not equal to the value like getting the sum of monthly expense where just a specific day’s amount not been included.

Let’s get the Generic Formula for this

=SUMIF (range, “<>value”,sum_range))

range : condition on the array
value : value to avoid
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 there respective quantity and Price. We need to get the total Price for all regions except East.

Use the formula:

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

Explanation:
B2:B26 : range where formula matches values.
"<>East" : the formula now accepts all values except East.
<> : not equal symbol
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 except “East. As you can see this formula returns the sum if cell is not equal to a value
