Hello,

I'm trying to create a spreadsheet where:

if A1 has any value, 10 is added to the total sum in G1
if B1 has any value, 20 is added to the total sum in G1
if C1 has any value, 30 is added to the total sum in G1

etc.

I think I should be using SUMIFS, but I'm not sure. Thanks.

Hang in there, two questions:

What is already in G1? Is it a formula, or is it an integer input by the user?

Let us know!

Nothing's in G1. It's a blank cell in a column that is going to hold totals

Thanks.

Ok, I read total, and thought it was already holding a value.....

the formula for if is as follows, and you can nest ifs:

=IF(logic_test,true,false)

You can also do something like:
=IF(logic_test,IF(LOGIC_TEST,true,false),false)

So what shouldl the output be if all of them have a number?

Would the output be 60?

If A1, B1 and C1 all have values in them, then yes, G1 should read 60
If only A1 has a value, then G1 should only read 10.

etc.

Well, that is a screen shot of your solution. If you cannot reverse engineer your final product from this, then wait around and see if someone else in the forum can possible make it more simple. I am sorry I cannot communicate the answer to you.

If you look at the above picture, wou will see three columns, colum a has the values to check for. Column b is the actual formulas that give the valuesYOU PROVIDED IF THERE IS A VALUE IN EACH CORISPONDING CELL. SO FOR EXAMPLE-if a1>0 then 10, if b1>0 then 20, and if c1>0 then 30 = 60. G1 formula is displayed in the picture. as is the formulas for building whehter or not a1, b1, or c1, has values.
