I'm trying to write a SUM function in sheet B, summing all the data from sheet A in specific rows. I can't find a good explanation of how to do this.

If you want to "retrieve" specific rows, then you need to use the following formula.


=SUMIF(range, criteria, sum_range)


In this case, the specific rows are summed , only if the value is smaller or equal to 10.


I've created an example file for you: SUMIF
