### How to SumIF in Excel:

In this How To, I will be covering how to use the sumIF function in excel.

**SUMIF SYNTAX:**

SUMIF(range, criteria, [sum_range])

The **SUMIF** function syntax has the following arguments:

**range**Required. The range of cells that you want evaluated by criteria. Cells in each range must be numbers or names, arrays, or references that contain numbers. Blank and text values are ignored. The selected range may contain dates in standard Excel format (examples below).**criteria**Required. The criteria in the form of a number, expression, a cell reference, text, or a function that defines which cells will be added. For example, criteria can be expressed as 32, “>32”, B5, “32”, “apples”, or TODAY().**IMPORTANT:**Any text criteria or any criteria that includes logical or mathematical symbols must be enclosed in double quotation marks (**“**). If the criteria is numeric, double quotation marks are not required.**sum_range**Optional. The actual cells to add, if you want to add cells other than those specified in theargument. If the*range*argument is omitted, Excel adds the cells that are specified in the*sum_range*argument (the same cells to which the criteria is applied).*range*

- You can use the wildcard characters—the question mark (
**?**) and asterisk (*****)—as theargument. A question mark matches any single character; an asterisk matches any sequence of characters. If you want to find an actual question mark or asterisk, type a tilde (*criteria***~**) preceding the character.
