# How to SUM a Column with Lookup value in a Range

We have described that how to lookup value and retrieve the entire column in the previous post. And this post will guide you how to get the sum of the entire column with lookup value in a range in excel.

## SUM Column with Lookup Value

If you want to lookup value in a range and then retrieve the entire row, you can use the MATCH function within the INDEX function.  For example, if you want to search “Sep” string in the range B1:D1, then return the entire column of a matched value in the range B2:D5, you can write down the following array formula:

`=INDEX(B2:D5,0,MATCH("Sep",B1:D1,0))` If you want to return the sum of the entire column, you need to use the SUM function in combination with the INDEX function and MATCH function. To get the sum of all values in a column that returned by the above INDEX/MATCH formula, you can use the following formula:

`=SUM(INDEX(B2:D5,0,MATCH("Sep",B1:D1,0)))` The INDEX/MATCH formula returns an array result that contain all values in the matching column like this:

`{20;13;21;43}`

The SUM function returns the sum of all elements in the array returned by the INDEX/MATCH functions. It returns 97.
