## Multiple Sumif formula

For multiple sum if, first you need to open brackets as follows: {=sum(if(....="x",if(...="y"..,range of values,0),0))}. Second, you need to type {} at the beginning and at the end of the formula by pressing Ctrl, Upper Case, Enter keys at the same time while the cursor in on the formula.

## SUMIFS

As an added wrinkle, if the data spans multiple years, you can use the "sumifs" formula to sum by multiple criteria (Month & Year). This formula allows for up to 127 different range/criteria pairs.
