I have created the below spreadsheet to track outstanding bills for clients.

Sample spreadsheet

I am trying to create a formula that will sum all the clients who have "No" for the value in the Paid column so I can know exactly what is outstanding at any given moment. I'm certain this can be done, but how?


Assuming you want to sum the totals (column B) when Paid="No" (column F), the formula you would use in J3 for "Total Outstanding Bills" is

  • I believe you need the = operator before NO =SUMIF(F2:F13,"=No",B2:B13) – Brad Patton Mar 8 '13 at 2:02
  • @BradPatton I tested this before I posted it, it worked fine as is. – Dan Mar 8 '13 at 17:48

Use named ranges. Select B column and name it Total. Then select F column and name it Paid. Then the formula you are looking for would be =SUMIF(Paid,"=No",Total)
