Sum with multiple criteria

Sum with multiple criteria

Sum with multiple criteria

I have a report where I am summing the count of a field based on another fields criteria. I cam currently using the following successful:


=Sum(IIf([released_by]="NAME" ,[countoftrans_NO],0)) 

This works fine, but I need to add additional criteria to the "released_by". I have tried "Name" and "other" and also tried "Name" or "other" and it does not seem to show the desired results. How can I modify this so that I can count the "countoftrans_no" by multiple criteria of "released_by"?

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you,

How about this?


=Sum(IIf([released_by]="NAME" Or [released_by]="other" ,[countoftrans_NO],0))

RE: Sum with multiple criteria

I would probably use the IN() condition.

CODE --> ControlSource

=Sum(Abs([released_by] In ("NAME","other"))*[countoftrans_NO]) 

Ideally there should be some value in the released_by lookup table that identifies whether or not a value should be included in the Sum().
