SUMXMY2: Google Sheets Formulae Explained

How do you use SUMXMY2 in Google Sheets?

The SUMXMY2 function in Google Sheets calculates the sum of the products of corresponding values in two arrays. The function is especially useful for calculating totals in data sets that are not in a row or column format. To use the SUMXMY2 function, enter the following into a cell in Google Sheets: =SUMXMY2(array1,array2)

What is the syntax of SUMXMY2 in Google Sheets?

The syntax of SUMXMY2 in Google Sheets is as follows:

=SUMXMY2(array1,array2,...)

This function calculates the sum of the products of corresponding elements in two or more arrays. The arrays can be of different dimensions, but must have the same number of dimensions.

What is an example of how to use SUMXMY2 in Google Sheets?

The SUMXMY2 function in Google Sheets can be used to calculate the sum of the products of two arrays, where each element in the arrays is a number. The function can be entered into a cell in a spreadsheet, and the arrays of numbers to be multiplied can be entered into cells adjacent to the function. For example, the function SUMXMY2(A2:A6,B2:B6) would calculate the sum of the products of the numbers in the arrays A2:A6 and B2:B6.

When should you not use SUMXMY2 in Google Sheets?

There are a few instances where you should not use SUMXMY2 in Google Sheets. One instance is when you have a data range that contains text values rather than numbers. In this case, the SUMXMY2 function will return the sum of the text values in the data range rather than the sum of the corresponding numeric values. Another instance where you should not use SUMXMY2 is when you have a data range that contains empty cells. The SUMXMY2 function will return the sum of the non-empty cells in the data range, so if you want to include the sum of the empty cells in the data range, you should use the SUM function instead.

What are some similar formulae to SUMXMY2 in Google Sheets?

The SUMXMY2 function in Google Sheets calculates the sum of the products of two ranges of cells, where each cell in the first range is paired with a cell in the second range. This function is similar to the SUMPRODUCT function, which also calculates the sum of the products of two ranges of cells, but the SUMPRODUCT function can also calculate the product of two ranges of cells that are not necessarily paired. The SUMIF function in Google Sheets also calculates the sum of a range of cells, but only if a certain condition is met for each cell in the range. The COUNTIF function in Google Sheets calculates the number of cells in a range that meet a certain condition.
