**SUMPRODUCT is one of the most useful excel functions.**

Sumproduct function can help you to multiply and sum specified ranges or arrays in excel. In simple words, It will first multiply the corresponding cells from ranges and then sum up all the values.

In above example, I have used sumproduct to multiple and sum up the values from column D and column F. First, it has multiplied the values from column D with column F and then sums up the values.

By using excel sumproduct function you can perform a complex calculation in a single cell.

## Syntax

SUMPRODUCT(array1, [array2], [array3], …)

**array1** First array you want to multiply & then add.

**[array2]** Second array you want to multiply & then add.

## Additional Information on Excel Sumproduct Function

- If skip you to specify
**array2**, Sumproduct will simply sum the**array1.** - The maximum size of each array should be same. If
**array1**has 5 cells then cells in**array2**should be 5. - Text & other non-numeric entries will be treated as 0.

## Examples

In below example, I have used sumproduct to get a value on some conditions.

As I have already mentioned, if you do not specify array2, it will simply sum array 1. And, here I have used the same logic to get the value from a condition. Let me explain.

- First, it will check which vendor you have selected.
- Then it will check which week you have selected.
- And, return the value from the cell intersect on the both.

The array will work something like this when you select V-3 & W-2
