I see a solution for this question using visual basic, however I am looking to use it in an Excel function. In the example attached I want to sum a range of values if the date is between two other dates.

I know I can sum if the date is greater or less than a specified date:

 =SUMIF($A2:$A4,"<39814",C$2:C$4) where the criteria is the Excel date as a serial number (in this case, before 1/1/09).

How can I do this if I want to sumif the date is between two dates? I tried this:

=SUMIF($A2:$A4,AND("<398149",">=39448"),B$2:B$4) where the criteria is supposed to be any date in 2008.

I get a result of 0.

Also, I want to reference cells containing the date, not the Excel date serial value. See the attached example.

You can use SUMPRODUCT like this

=SUMPRODUCT((A3:A6>=A4)*(A3:A6<=A5),B3:B6)

...obviously you wouldn't normally have the criteria dates as part of the criteria range, that was just by way of example....criteria dates, A4 and A5 should ideally be in different cells. Note that for a whole year only you could use YEAR function like this:

=SUMPRODUCT((YEAR(A3:A6)=2008)+0,B3:B6)

or from excel version 2003 you could also use

=SUMIFS(B2:B6;A2:A6;"<40179";A2:A6;">39813")

to get the total for 2009

Or if you really like sumif

=SUMIF(A2:A6,"<="&$A$5,B2:B6)-SUMIF(A2:A6,"<"&$A$4,B2:B6)

Plug this formula into your cell
=SUM(IF(AND(A2>=A15,A2<A16),B2,0),IF(AND(A3>=A15,A3<A16),B3,0),IF(AND(A4>=A15,A4<A16),B4,0),IF(AND(A5>=A15,A5<A16),B5,0),IF(AND(A6>=A15,A6<A16),B6,0))

The long-winded way.
