I have a sheet that has text in column A, a amounts in column B and dates in column C. In row 1, columns O through Z I have the names of Months (January..December).
In the January column, row 2 (cell O2), I want to create a formula that will SUM all values in column B where MONTH(C#) = 1. Likewise in cell P2, I want to sum all rows in column B where MONTH(C#) = 2. And so on.

The result is 12 formulas, one for each month, that displays the total amount in colukmn B for that month (or 0 if nothing exists yet for the month).

Try this formula in O2 copied across

=SUMPRODUCT((TEXT($C$2:$C$100,"mmmm")=O$1)+0,$B$2:$B$100)

assumes data in rows 2 to 100, adjust as required

You can use this formula in O2 and copy across columns:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(MONTH($C$2:$C$6)=COLUMN()-COLUMN($O1)+1),$B$2:$B$6)

(rows from 2 to 6 - you can change)

(nb: "mmmm" in TEXT formula is language-dependent, it will not work in some non-english environment.)

Cheers,
Kris

Both, in my case work and produce the same results. I've accepted Kris' as the best solution as he does take language into consideration, even though I am not considering running this code in a computer with Chinese set as the language any time in the near future, it may help others. I've split the points evenly. Thanks to both of you.

Thank you!
The problem is not just Chinese but for example my Hungarian, where "hhhh" stands for "mmmm"
Cheers,

It's a fair point :)

You could possibly use COLUMNS function to avoid having 2 COLUMN functions, i.e.

=SUMPRODUCT(--(MONTH($C$2:$C$6)=COLUMNS($O2:O2)),$B$2:$B$6)
