Hello JP,

Here are two possible ways

=SUMPRODUCT((B3:D3=B9)*(A4:A7=B10),B4:D7)

or

=SUMIF(A4:A7,B10,INDEX(B4:D7,0,MATCH(B9,B3:D3,0)))

Although the latter is longer it's arguably more efficient. Formula 1 needs to be used if there could be more than 1 column with a date header matching B9

regards, barry

See examples in your sheet, I put one formula in F12 and one in G12 - of course they return the same result......

Excellent application!  I favor the sumproduct approach, as it is easier for me to follow.
Thanks!
