I want to add the values from cell A1 to A6. However, if any values is

greater 8, I must minus .5, then add them. If they not greater 8, then just

add them to the total. How do I do this in an sum if statement?

- =SUM(IF(A1:A6>8,A1:A6-0.5,A1:A6))
entered with Ctrl+Shift+Enter rather than just enter since this is an array

formula.

If you reselect the cell and look in the formula bar, it will appear as

{=SUM(IF(A1:A6>8,A1:A6-0.5,A1:A6))}

Excel displays it enclosed in curly brackets if it is being treated as an

array formula.

if it is not displayed that way, hit F2, then again, close it while

simultaneously doing Ctrl+Shift+Enter

- =SUM(IF(A1:A6>8,A1:A6-0.5,A1:A6))
- This non-array (meaning just use Enter to commit it Richard) should also
work...

=SUM(A1:A6)-0.5*COUNTIF(A1:A6,">8")

- This non-array (meaning just use Enter to commit it Richard) should also
- i dont know if this suits you, it is not sumif but it works
=SUM(A1:A6)-COUNTIF(A1:A6;">8")*0,5

First part is total sum and the second counts the values >8 and

multiplies their number * 0.5. Then is part1-part2
