Conditional Sum Wizard

Removed in 2010
In 2010 the same functionality can be obtained using the SUMIFS worksheet function.
The Conditional Sum Wizard will help you to calculate the sums of values that meet specified conditions.
It is possible to sum a block of cells based on a single condition using the SUMIF function.
If you want to sum a block of cells based on more than one condition this can be achieved by using Array Formulas.
The Conditional Sum Wizard creates a formula which allows you to sum a block of cells based on more than one condition.
This is an additional add-in that can be loaded when necessary. It is not loaded by default.
