    Would you use SUMPRODUCT of SUMIF?

    Both give the same results.
    Other than a preference for someone understanding the logic of one versus the other, is there any efficiency reason to use one over the other?

    =SUMPRODUCT($B$3:$B$5000*($E3=$A$3:$A$5000))

    =SUMIF($A$3:$A$5000,$E3,$B$3:$B$5000)

    I believe SUMIF should be mmore efficient, but I doubt you would see a performance difference at all.

    SUMPRODUCT will return a #value if any cells within the range contain text.

    ..so I too prefer SUMIF
