Hi,

I am trying to use variable where needed in the formula but it was not working or I did not know how insert it.
Here below is the formula that I wish to pass.
HTML:
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
        "=SUMIFS(R[5]C[36]:R[180]C[36],R[5]C[-2]:R[180]C[-2],""=141060"",R[5]C[1]:R[180]C[1],""=4500270213"")"

I want to be able to change these values. On the other hand I tried to enter the formula differently than what you see. the wya it should be is:

HTML:
=SUMIFS("AO5":"AO300", "C5":"C300", "=141060", "F5":"F300", "=4500270213")

I want the criteria to be variable so the "=141060" and the other one can change. Can any one help me write it properly?

The first one above was created using the create macro. I could not figure out how these R and C got written this way.

Regards,

Chuck

Hi Chuck
Based on what you've posted Im not sure what your trying to do so heres a few options:

If your using your second example in a cell as a formula, then you should remove the quote marks from around the range addresses:
= SUMIFS(AO5:AO300, C5:C300, "=141060", F5:F300, "=4500270213")
If you want to pass the two criteria as variables, you place them into two cells, and replace the literals with the cell references.
= SUMIFS(AO5:AO300, C5:C300, K1, F5:F300, L1)
If you want to create a Custom function as below, you can pass the criteria as parameters:
= AddForMe(141060, 4500270213).

Place the following function code into a standaed VBA module to try it:

Code:
Public Function AddForMe(v1 As Double, v2 As Double) As Long
Dim ao As Range, c As Range, f As Range
Set ao = Range("AO:AO")
Set c = Range("C:C")
Set f = Range("F:F")
AddForMe = Application.SumIfs(ao, c, v1, f, v2)
End Function

It would be quite easy to modify the code to pass the parameters as cell values, and if
altered to a subroutine write the result total to a selected cell.

Hi hercules1946,

Thanks anyway for the tip. I must say this function can also be used. Appreciate your feedback.

Cheers!

Note: It is very cold today and snowy in Ottawa. Brrrrrrrrrr!
