How to use SUMIFS with the criteria referencing a cell

The formula

=SUMIFS('205-4'!N:N,'205-4'!E:E,">=B8",'205-4'!E:E,"<=C8")

does not work unless I actually enter the contents of B8 and C8 into the formula giving

=SUMIFS('205-4'!N:N,'205-4'!E:E,">=411001",'205-4'!E:E,"<=411010")


What is the workaround for this in Excel?

Thanks
Paul
