Creating a pass of fail condition
Hi there I need to use a sum function that only happens if a certain condition exist, this condition being that every number in a column has to be over a certain level, here is the scenario: Students have to take a series of 5 parts of an examination tests, each part is assessed and a score awarded, the scores for all 5 are summed and an overall mark awarded for their performance. The condition is though that they HAVE to have acheived a pass in each test, If they fail in at least one text, it doesn't sum or just returns a zero result. Anyone suggest how to do this?

Creating a pass of fail condition
How do you assess pass or fail for each?
If you do it by number: =IF(COUNTIF(A1:A5,"74")=5,SUM(A1:A5),0) requires each number in A1:A5 be greater than 74 or it returns 0. If you use the word 'pass' somewhe =IF(COUNTIF(B1:B5,"pass")=5,SUM(A1:A5),0) Where B1:B5 contains 'pass' for a pass and anything else for "still developing"  you can't fail anyone these days!

Thanks JHHi and welcome to the code cage!, supplying a workbook would be much better as we can help you directly with your particular structure, however, attached is a sample of how to use sumproduct, take a look at it and post back any questions or queries ++ Filename: Sumproduct example.xls  Download: http://www.thecodecage.com/forumz/attachment.php?attachmentid=172 ++  Simon Lloyd Regards, Simon Lloyd 'The Code Cage' (http://www.thecodecage.com)  Simon Lloyd's Profile: http://www.thecodecage.com/forumz/member.php?userid=1 View this thread: http://www.thecodecage.com/forumz/sh...d.php?t=112852

Thanks JH If your scores are in cells A1 to A5 and your levels that the scores have to be over are in cells B1 to B5, then try the following formula: =AND(A1:A5B1:B5)*SUM(A1:A5) Note: This is an array formula that has to be confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER rather than just ENTER. If the limits are the same for each test you can use =AND(A1:A5B1)*SUM(A1:A5) instead. The common limit for all tests is put in B1 (or directly into the formula). Hope this helps / Larske

Creating a pass of fail condition
Thanks to everyone for their contributions,the final product when devised will not be exactly as the scenario depicted, but with all these possible solutions it gives me a greater range of options than I expected to find. Appreciate the help. Rgds JH  jhumphreys  jhumphreys's Profile: http://www.thecodecage.com/forumz/member.php?userid=470 View this thread: http://www.thecodecage.com/forumz/sh...d.php?t=112852
