Sum if by year

SUMIFS function will be used to demonstrate how to sum if by year.  

Sum if by year

Generic Formula



Considering the example below, the formula in F5 is:  = =SUMIFS($C$3:$C$9,$B$3:$B$9,">="&DATE(E5,1,1),$B$3:$B$9,"<="&DATE(E5,12,31))

Extending the formula through column F, you will get the result like this

Figure 2 – Sum if by year


The syntax of SUMIFS function is:

=SUMIFS(sum_range, criteria_range1, criteria1, [criteria_range2, criteria2], ...)

In this case, sum_range is C3:C9, and criteria_range (or date_range) is B3:B9. There are 2 criteria happen at the same time in the formula.  

You will need to understand how they work.

  • First criterion: B3:B9,”>=”&DATE(E5,1,1). Cells in range B3:B9 that >= 01/01/2015


  • Second criterion: B3:B9,”<=”&DATE(E5,12,31). Cells in range B3:B9 that <= 12/31/2015 will be added to sum.


Remember to press F4 after the sum_ranges and date_ranges as you will not want to change the ranges when you extend the formula down column F.
