*This user has given permission to use the problem statement for this blog.*

I need one cell to look at a specific range in a column, figure out if the date in those cells is between two dates and if it is I need it to take the value of the adjacent cells and sum them up. I have a column with dates, next to that a column with dollar amounts. I want one cell to make a sum of the amounts associated with a specific date range. Please help.

Hello, I understand that you need help in summing all the values that fall under a date range, right?

User

what i need is "new cell" to look into A2:A5, figure out if the date is january, it cant be after or before, it must in the month, and if it is Jan to then take the adjacent cells and add all of them up

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2018 - 04:42

So it will always be January or will you be pulling something else in the future?

User

there are technically two date columns, one has the month that my reps projected they would close an account and the other is the "actual close date"

User
09/08/2018 - 04:44

i want to be able to sum only the amounts they closed that month

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2018 - 04:44

Okay, here's what I suggest. Have a cell that will tell you what month you want to compute.

User
09/08/2018 - 04:44

meaning sometimes they project they will close in jan and then they close in march

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2018 - 04:44

Like what I did in D1.

User
09/08/2018 - 04:45

ok

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2018 - 04:46

If you type 1/1/2018 in D1, it will only sum the January data.

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2018 - 04:46

If you type 7/1/2018 in D1, it will only sum the July Data.

User
09/08/2018 - 04:47

yes but these things are also rep specifc

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2018 - 04:48

I can only provide a solution based on how you presented your data.

User
09/08/2018 - 04:48

each month will have 5 - 10 reps

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2018 - 04:48

As mentioned earlier, an accurate example would help.

User

User

my apologies

Excelchat Expert

Here, use E1 to type the Rep you want to add.

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2018 - 04:49

So D1 will be the month, E1 will be the rep.

Excelchat Expert

You will of course need to adjust the range and the cell references in order for this to work.

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2018 - 05:04

Since you changed what we already worked on, I have applied the new formula in column S.

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2018 - 05:04

I'll have to end this session now since you were not able to extend nor reply to me via the sheet.

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2018 - 05:06

If you can read this, I'll be forwarding your file to our support team so it can be sent to you along with the formula for column S. As long as the columns and ranges are the same, you can easily copy the formula to your sheets file.

Excelchat Expert
09/08/2018 - 05:06

=sumifs($E:$E,$A:$A,$R3,$D:$D,">="&$R$8,$D:$D,"<="&$S$8)

Excelchat Expert
