Hi,

You do not need datevalue if your dates are already dates and not text

=SUMPRODUCT((D2=$A$3:$A$16)*(D3=$B$3:$B$16))

Open in new window

What if the dates came into the spreadsheet as text?

I suppose

this would be the formula

SUMPRODUCT((D2=DATEVALUE($A$3:$A$16))*(D3=$B$3:$B$16))

that implies that D2 is a date
