I can not get the SUM IF function to return any results but zero.

Hi,
Please remove the quote from around the numbers in the IF formula. If for
some reason you cannot do so, then you may use =SUMPRODUCT(C4:C6*1)

THANK YOU! This was such an easy solution I would hope that Excel would
incorporate it into their Help guides. I spent so much time and all it took
was removing the quotes from the numbers in the formula. You Rock!!!
