Hi,

I would like to calculate the attached yellow table. I think it's a sumifs formula - but it needs to only do this for the given date range.

Thanks for your help

Another way could be like this:
Example:

If you put this formula in Cell J7 :
=IF(SUMIFS(B:B,A:A,J3)=0,"",SUMIFS(B:B,A:A,J3))

Open in new window


With the above formula, if no records was found, it would leave the cell empty instead of putting N/A# or 0

Thanks Jean-Marc,

This works, but I'm hoping for a formula that doesn't define/lock the date column - but rather searches for the appropriate column based on the given date in the yellow cells. By doing it this way, I don't have to worry about users changing the dates on either of the tables.

Is this possible?

Is this more what you are looking for?

It will look at all dates columns

Just remember to press Ctrl+Shift+Enter after typing the formula, instead of just Enter. This is to activate the array formula rather than a single data value.
