# excel summing columns where with certain criteria

Posted on 2014-04-02

I have an excel spreadsheet that reflects expenses over a three year period - each row is another specific expense.  For each expense, i have added a column with the week number that the date falls in ( a little problem may be that since there is more than one year, we have the same week number for different years - ie 1/1/2012 is week 1 and 1/1/2013 is week 1).

See attached spreadsheet for an example

So, i want to to create a summing formula so that I can add up all expenses of a particular expense (in this case "child care expense") that fall for each week number and to place the sum in the last row of each week

You could do it by manually entering each Childcare instance: =sum(G2,G13)

You can use the below formula in cell I2 and copy it down:

=IF(OR(WEEKNUM(B3)>WEEKNUM(B2),B3=""),SUMIFS(G\$1:G2,H\$1:H2,"Child care",B\$1:B2,">"&B2-WEEKDAY(B2)+1),"")

It checks if the next date is either empty or in a following week, then sums the childcare for the previous week.

EDIT: adjusted so week can stop on any day.
