Thread: Sum values in range based on top values in another range with criteria in third range

1. Sum values in range based on top values in another range with criteria in third range

Hello everyone,

I've been struggling for a while to find the solution for my problem, hope someone will help out.
So, I have this table (will more than 2000 rows):
 Year 1 Year 2 Variation Criteria 100 105 5 A 95 85 -10 A 95 90 -5 A 85 95 10 B

Firstly I needed to find out the sum of Top nth negative values (in this case top 2) from the Variation column with A as Criteria.
which is -15
=sumproduct(small((range "Criteria" = A)*(range "Variation",row(indirect("1:2")))

I also need to find out what was the sums from Year 1 and 2 based on the Top 2 negative values from the Variation column, keeping the criteria A.
The answer would be : Year 1 => 95 +95 = 190; Year 2=> 85+90 =175.

2. I think I found a solution but it involves a helper cells

1. This formula would return the smallest number in Variance range:
=SMALL(IF(range "Criteria"="A"; range "Variation");1)

for the second smallest the formula is:

=SMALL(IF(range "Criteria"="A"; range "Variation");2) etc.

Once you know which are the nth smallest numbers it is easy to sum the numbers for respective year using SUMIFS  Reply With Quote

The formula works, but unfortunately can't be adapted to my real case care the Top nth value is variable.  Reply With Quote

criteria, multiple criteria, sum top, sumproduct/sumif, topn function
