#### Formula Help #48

```=IF(B3="ALL",SUMPRODUCT(--(G18:G3000=C3),(J18:J3000)),IF(C3="ALL",SUMPRODUCT(--(H18:H3000=B3),(J18:J3000)),IF(B3="ALL",IF(C3="ALL",SUM(J18:J3000)))))

The first two parts of this formula work fine.  If B3= all or if
C3=all, I get the desired result, but if I want both cells to = all
then I get \$0.00 for an answer.

```Thanks,  but I still can't get that to work.  (I assume you mean to
put what you wrote at the beginning of the formula.)

Because when B3=3D"ALL" and C3=3D"ALL", you satisfy the first condition
(just B3=3D"ALL").  You need to test the last condition first, for
example:

=3Dif(and(B3=3D"ALL",C3=3D"ALL"),sum(J18:J3000),
if(B3=3D"ALL",sumproduct(--(G18:G3000=3DC3),J18:J3000),
if(C3=3D"ALL",sumproduct(--(H18:H3000=3DB3),J18:J3000),"")))

Note that I added a final case:  "" when neither B3 nor C3 is "ALL".
Fill in whatever you want there.  But you should always cover all
cases.

```This is very good, thank you.  And yes, there is one final condition I
thought I could work out if I got what I needed...but I'm struggling
with it.  This is what I have for that final condition, but it returns
\$0.00.

I must be close.  Has it got something to do with the parenthesis on
the final line?

=IF(AND(B3="ALL",C3="ALL"),SUM(J18:J3000),
IF(B3="ALL",SUMPRODUCT(--(G18:G3000=C3),J18:J3000),
IF(C3="ALL",SUMPRODUCT(--(H18:H3000=B3),J18:J3000),
SUMPRODUCT(--(G18:G3003=C3),(H18:H3000=B3),(J18:J3000)))))

Oh wait, I think I got it...I made one change to the final line and it
seems to work:  An asterik after C3 instead of a comma.  (I don't know
why that works, or why I have to make that change, but I'm happy ;-))

SUMPRODUCT(--(G18:G3003=C3)*(H18:H3000=B3),(J18:J3000)))))

Thanks again, appreciate that much.

Just for the record, the only problem with the first form is:  you are
missing "--" before the 2nd term (H18:H3000=3DB3).  And in the second
form, the "--" are redundant.  Finally, learn from example.  You might
notice that I did not put parentheses around the last term
(J18:J3000); they are unnecessary in this context.  No harm, either.
