Populating fields with data based on cell inputs

Column A contains monthly dates beginning with Jan-93 and ending with Dec-94 (additional months will be added over time).  Column B contains values relating to each month of Column A.  In cell C1 I will enter a start date, and in cell C2 I will enter an end date.  What I need is for Column E to be populated with the months from C1 to C2, Column F to be populated with the values corresponding to the dates in Column E, Column G to be populated with the cumulative values of Column F, cell H1 to indicate the total number of months populating Column E, and cell H2 to indicate the last value in Column G.

It would be better if this could be done without the need of a macro, but I doubt it can.  I've uploaded a sample spreadsheet...     Example.xlsx

Here are the formulas in the file

=IF(OR(OFFSET($A$1,MATCH($C$1,A:A,0)+ROW()-2,,1,1)>$C$2,LEN(OFFSET($A$1,MATCH($C$1,A:A,0)+ROW()-2,,1,1))=0),"",OFFSET($A$1,MATCH($C$1,A:A,0)+ROW()-2,,1,1))

=IF(LEN(E1)>0,VLOOKUP(E1,$A$1:$B$24,2,0),"")

only with formulas is difficult to reach the solution, if you want I can make a macro or otherwise operate without use VBA macros but you serve?
