View Full Version : [SOLVED:] Sumproduct result displays incorrectly on sheet

I have a simple sumproduct formula as follows:


I'm attempting to match the value in cell M4 in the 2nd column of the Range "Contracts" and then sum up the value in column 5.

If i view the result in the Fx Formula Arguments window by clicking the Fx on the formula bar, I see the Formula Result I would expect given my data. On my sheet however, there is a different number being dislayed.

I can change the value in M4 to other valid values and the same occurs. The correct result shows in the Formula Result, but not on the sheet.

Anyone ever experienced this?

This formula :

=SUMIF(INDEX(Contracts,,2),"=" & M4,INDEX(Contracts,,5))/28

generates the exact same result displayed as the Formula result in the Fx window for the sumproduct formula above, but it also displays the correct result on the worksheet.

Why would the sumproduct formula show one result on the worksheet and another in the Function Arguments window???

TRy array-entering the SP formula.

Array Entering did the trick. Now I can expand the formula to capture all the constraints I need. Thx.
