I am trying to sum by month based on the attached spreadsheet.  I have tried searching for an answer to this, and when I use what I think is the correct array formula, I get a #Value error.

Thanks,

I have been getting an error using this formula

=SUMPRODUCT((MONTH($A$2:$A$225)=MONTH(I1)*($B$2:$F$225)))

Based on your workbook you would need:
=SUMPRODUCT((MONTH($A$2:$A$225)=MONTH(H2))*($F$2:$F$225))

Safer to check the year too though, unless you will only have one year's data:
=SUMPRODUCT(--(MONTH($A$2:$A$225)=MONTH(H3)),--(YEAR($A$2:$A$225)=YEAR(H3)),$F$2:$F$225)

Note: you could also use a pivot table for a simple summary.

Not sure if you have correct columns in that formula:
Column I is empty.
$B$2:$F$225 this is a wide range.
Could you show a sample of what you expect the formula to do? I am not sure I got you correctly.
