I can't tell exactly what you are trying to do from the example but is you want to only look at filtered values then use the SUMPRODUCT function as described below.

The SUBTOTAL function provides various aggregate functions such as SUM and AVERAGE that ignore hidden rows in AutoFilter lists. The following parameter values only ignore rows hidden with the AutoFilter function and are compatible with all versions of Excel.

   1 - AVERAGE
   2 - COUNT
   3 - COUNTA
   4 - MAX
   5 - MIN
   6 - PRODUCT
   7 - STDEV
   8 - STDEVP
   9 - SUM
   10 - VAR
   11 - VARP

In Excel 2003 and later one of the features of the SUBTOTAL function is that it can, if specified, ignore any rows in the input range that are manually hidden. To use this feature specify one of the parameter values listed below for the first parameter. Note that SUBTOTAL ignores rows hidden using AutoFilter regardless of what the parameter is.

   101 - AVERAGE
   102 - COUNT
   103 - COUNTA
   104 - MAX
   105 - MIN
   106 - PRODUCT
   107 - STDEV
   108 - STDEVP
   109 - SUM
   110 - VAR
   111 - VARP

Hello,

the attached list is not filtered. To return the maximum number you can use

=max(D5:D6)

but I guess it's more complex in your real spreadsheet.

cheers, teylyn

I only want to return data that falls between the criteria listed in both D5:D6 "Stats table"

So the =SUMPRODUCT((Data!B14:B20000+0>=D5)*(Data!B14:B20000+0<=D6)* part is trying to match up the dates from D5:D6 with those in coumn B "Data" sheet

Unfortunatly if I use "=MAX(Data!X14:X2000)" this would return data that doesn't always fall between the dates in D5:D6

i.e B19 = 11/03/2010

Use this array formula:

=MAX(IF((Data!B14:B20000>=D5)*(Data!B14:B20000<=D6)>0,Data!B14:B20000,""))

Enter by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

Correction:

=MAX(IF((Data!B14:B20000>=D5)*(Data!B14:B20000<=D6)>0,Data!X14:X20000,""))
