# Thread: Summing one column by choosing the cell marked by another column

1. ## Summing one column by choosing the cell marked by another column

In cells B9 & C10 I summed the three largest ranking amounts. I did this mannually. Is there a way to apply a formula to these cells so if the ranking changes the total will appropriately change.Thanks

2. What about: =SUMIF(D2 : D6,"<4",B2:B6) in B9?

And, similar in C9 (I think you meant C9 rather than C10).

3. MNN,

Try =SUM(LARGE(B2:B6,{1,2,3})) in B9 and =SUM(LARGE(C2:C6,{1,2,3})) in C9

HTH,
Maud

4. Both Solutions work very well. However, is there a way to identify a Numer or Text in the D cloumn and sum the B Column and C Column without specifically identifying the ranking, in this case.

5. Do you mean in column D you'll put an "x" to mark those that should be summed? Please clarify.

6. MNN,

The formulas I provided do not need column D as a helper column
