I have a budget sheet that uses SUMIFS to calculate a total for a particular category. it uses a separate transaction sheet of individual rows to calculate the value for a given category and month. I want to be able to click on my budget total and see what values were used to create this SUMIFS value. Any ideas on how or if this can be done would be greatly appreciated.

Choose Insert > Sheet, and copy your sumifs() formula into cell A1 there. Then edit the formula to replace sumifs() with filter(), like this:

=sumifs(Data!G2:G, Data!F2:F, "deal", Data!G2:G, "<= 42")


=filter(Data!A2:G, Data!F2:F = "deal", Data!G2:G <= 42)
