This Excel Tutorial demonstrates how to use the **Excel SUMIF Function** in Excel to add numbers that meet certain criteria, with formula examples.

## SUMIF Function Description:

The SUMIF Function Adds together all numbers that meet a certain criteria.

## Formula Examples:

## Syntax and Arguments:

The Syntax for the SUMIF Formula is:

`=SUMIF(range,criteria,sum_range)`

### Function Arguments ( Inputs ):

**range** – The range containing the criteria that determines which numbers to sum.

**criteria** – The criteria indicating when to sum. Example: “<50” or “apples”.

**sum_range** – The range to sum.

## Additional Notes

## SUMIF Examples in VBA

You can also use the SUMIF function in VBA. Type:

`application.worksheetfunction.sumif(range,criteria,sum_range)`

Assuming we have the following excel sheet

```
Private Sub Excel_VBAExample_SUMIF()
Dim SumIfResult As Variant
SumIfResult = Application.WorksheetFunction.SumIf(Range("A1:A10"), "In", Range("B1:B10"))
MsgBox ("SUMIF result is: " & SumIfResult )
End Sub
```

We are summing numbers from Column B, where column A text is “In”. The result is 73.

For the function arguments (range, etc.), you can either enter them directly into the function, or define variables to use instead.
