I'm trying to figure out a formula that lets me find the 3rd character of a number within a certain date range and then take the total count and divide it by the total piece count to give me a % which reflects onto another sheet in that workbook. The formula I am using to find the 3rd character is =SUMPRODUCT(--(MID(I18:I500,3,1)="9")) and =SUMPRODUCT(--(MID(I18:I499,3,1)="8")). Here are some pictures that might help. I need the 3rd character in column "I" to be totaled and then divided by the total piece count "B4" to get a percentage that is reflected on Sheet "PDC Dashboard" in B57, C57, etc based on the date range those pieces are in.

The basic category SUMIF are fine. But when I need to sort by both the Category & then again by sub-cat I get error.

Converting a quarter (4Q'14) into a start and end date range. So for example, 4Q'14 would become 10/1/14 - 12/31/14. Please note that the quarters in my workbook (4Q'14) are projected quarters which are x months prior or after a particular date. For example, the date 12/15/17 became the quarter 4Q'14 since the requirement was to project a date 36 months prior. I have several columns that project months prior and post a specific date across various # of months (18, 6, 24, 36 months and etc). The formula used to project these dates is: =MONTH(date(year(A2),month(A2)-18,day(A2)))/3&"Q'"&mid(year(date(year(A2),month(A2)-18,day(A2))),3,2) For each projected quarter I would change the "-18" to represent how many months post or prior to a particular date I wanted. My goal is to then convert these projected quarters to date ranges as I explained in the beginning.

I need help on conditional formatting dates. So in short, I need the cells to be red if the date is between the 1st and 14th, then green if the date is between the 15th and 30th (or 31st). The current formula I am using is the following: RED =TODAY()>DATE(2017,8,1) =TODAY()>DATE(2017,9,1) =TODAY()>DATE(2017,10,1) =TODAY()>DATE(2017,11,1) =TODAY()>DATE(2017,12,1) GREEN =TODAY()>DATE(2017,8,15) =TODAY()>DATE(2017,9,15) =TODAY()>DATE(2017,10,15) =TODAY()>DATE(2017,11,15) =TODAY()>DATE(2017,12,15) So, I went in to the "Conditional Formatting" then went to manage rules, add rule. Then I did it in order of month, red to green. For example I would copy and paste the 8/17 red code and then the 08/17 green code, in order up to December 2017. It is now the 20th and I opened the excel sheet to check if the cell would be green because the date range but it is not. I have an attachable image.
