NameRequired/OptionalData TypeDescription

Return Value


  • Each cell in sum_range is summed only if all of the corresponding criteria specified are true for that cell.
  • Cells in sum_range that contain TRUE evaluate as 1; cells in sum_range that contain FALSE evaluate as 0 (zero).
  • You can use the wildcard characters, question mark (?) and asterisk (*), in criteria. 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 (~) before the character.
  • Each criteria_range does not have to be the same size and shape as sum_range. The actual cells that are added are determined by using the top, left cell in that criteria_range as the beginning cell, and then including cells that correspond in size and shape to sum_range. For example:
    If sum_range isAnd a criteria_range isThen the actual cells evaluated are
