# Dynamic Positioning of Totals using Dynamic Arrays

in Excel For All9 months ago (edited)

In the video above you learned how to create Dynamic Positioning of Totals using Dynamic arrays using Excels SEQUENCE function and some logic.   This is an awesome trick that will give any spreadsheet that look professional.

As promised in the video, I have a Learn and Earn Activity for you to complete so you can practice what you have learned.

Download the file.  It contains the sample data as shown in the image.

Column A:C contains the data we wish to work with.  Cell H2 contains data validation allowing you to select between the customer.

The aim of the task is to pull in the Amount of the invoice into column H, and to include a total value of all invoices.

To aid with this, I have already included a dynamic array formula to pull in the invoice numbers for the selected customer.

In the comments section below detail the steps and the formula you used to pull in the amount for the invoices and a Dynamic total.

The way shown in the video is not the only way to do this.  There are alternatives.  If you have an alternative please do share it as you may be providing a valuable resource for someone else.

There is conditional format for Total (i.e, Bold and Lines). How it is done?.

For pull in the Amount of the invoice into column H:
In cell H5, I typed in =SUMIFS(C1:C11,A1:A11,A2).
In cell H6, I typed in =SUMIFS(C1:C11,A1:A11,A3).
In cell H7, I typed in =SUMIFS(C1:C11,A1:A11,A4).

For total value of all invoices:
In cell H8, I typed in =SUM(H5:H7). That gives a total of 1059.

Paula, am I doing it right? I hope that I'm doing it right.

without dynamic arrays, you would enter a formula to each cell. Have you tried it with dynamic arrays? ( what version of Excel are you using?)

I have went through the video above and I couldn't get the understanding on how to apply the dynamic arrays onto the Learn and Earn Activity above without entering a formula to each cell.

I'm using my laptop that installed with "Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon" OS.
I'm using FreeOffice PlanMaker 2018 (rev 973.1103) 64bit.
It is an alternate version of Excel for my Linux OS laptop.

ah, so you don't have the dynamic arrays feature in the package you are using. you could try excel online :-)

Okay, I will use Excel online.

This is what I did using Microsoft Excel online.

For pull in the Amount of the invoice into column H:
In cell H5, as I typed in =SUM, a drop-down list appeared, and I double-click on SUMIFS and =SUMIFS( filled in the cell H5. Then, I clicked and dragged from cell C1 to cell C11. Then, I typed ',' and then I clicked and dragged from cell A1 to cell A11. Then, I typed ',' and then I clicked on cell A2, and then I typed ')' and press Enter. Number 319 filled in the cell H5.
In cell H6, as I typed in =SUM, a drop-down list appeared, and I double-click on SUMIFS and =SUMIFS( filled in the cell H6. Then, I clicked and dragged from cell C1 to cell C11. Then, I typed ',' and then I clicked and dragged from cell A1 to cell A11. Then, I typed ',' and then I clicked on cell A3, and then I typed ')' and press Enter. Number 473 filled in the cell H6.
In cell H7, as I typed in =SUM, a drop-down list appeared, and I double-click on SUMIFS and =SUMIFS( filled in the cell H7. Then, I clicked and dragged from cell C1 to cell C11. Then, I typed ',' and then I clicked and dragged from cell A1 to cell A11. Then, I typed ',' and then I clicked on cell A4, and then I typed ')' and press Enter. Number 267 filled in the cell H7.

For total value of all invoices:
In cell H8, as I typed in =SUM, a drop-down list appeared, and I double-click on SUM and =SUM( filled in the cell H8. Then, I clicked and dragged from cell H5 to cell H7. Then, I typed ')' and press Enter. Number 1059 filled in the cell H8.

@paulag Paula, is the video above on how to create Dynamic Positioning of Totals using Dynamic arrays using Excels SEQUENCE function, has anything to do with the above Learn and Earn Activity? Are the both using the same method? I'm sorry I kind of confuse right now.

the learn and earn activity on this post is
