 anand Posts: n/a sumproduct

I can create a sumproduct formula that refers to external cells for a
filtering function
e.g. =sumproduct(A1:A200=A205 205)*(B1:B200=1).

this should return the sum of those # of rows where there is a 1 in row B
and any of 4 different values (which I can switch from text or numbers) in
the first 4 cells of row 205.

Question is how can I indicate either blanks or nonblanks in one of the 4
reference cells in row 205.

In addition, what does the operator "-" do when replacing the asterisk (*)
in the sumproduct formula. I know that a plus sign means "or" rather than
"and" for the asterisk. does the "-" symbol mean "but not"? So if I want a
formula that indicates, for example everyhing with a "apple" in column one
but not a "orange" in column 2?

What exactly do you mean? It works with blanks in A1:A200, or in A205 205

In addition, what does the operator "-" do when replacing the asterisk (*)
in the sumproduct formula. I know that a plus sign means "or" rather than
"and" for the asterisk. does the "-" symbol mean "but not"?

No, the - goes with another, a double unary, which is used to coerce the
True/False results of a test are coerced to 1/0 values, for the arithmetic
operations.

So if I want a
formula that indicates, for example everyhing with a "apple" in column one
but not a "orange" in column 2?

No, that is a simple <

=SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A200="apple),--(B1:B200<"orange"))

equivalent to

=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A200="apple)*(B1:B200<"orange"))

I presume you mean -exclude cells with blanks? In that case
=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A200=A205 205)*(B1:B200=1)*(A205: D205<0))

=SUMPRODUCT(--ISNUMBER(MATCH(\$A\$1:\$A\$200,\$A\$205:\$D\$205,0)),--(\$B\$1:\$B\$200=1))

 anand Posts: n/a No, what I'm really trying to do is creat a series of external references for
a dozens of sumproduct formula. Then copy the formulas whole and duplicate
(with a fixed data block). The sumproduct formulas should give identical
results (presuming that I copy over the reference cells also. However, now
what I'd want to do is adjust the reference cells so that I'm looking at a
different set of conditions. In some cases, I may want to include either a
blank, all nonblanks or mabe all. Any idea how to use a reference cell to
indicate this? I would assume if I'm using a series of reference cells in a
row linked by "or" as this function works, then adding something than
indicates blanks, blanks, or all could be done; just not sure how. If used
all or non-blanks, this would likey over-ride any selection in rest of
reference range i.e. if I have 1,2,3,4 as acceptable conditions and replace
with 1,2,3,all, then I would presume that the 1,2,3 become irrelevant.

So question remains, is there any symbol that can indicate blanks,
non-blanks or all within a reference cell attached to a sumproduct function?
