Experts,

if given:
1/1/2016   1/2/2016  2/1/2016  2/15/2016  3/1/2016
with costs of
10/20/40/50

    Sum the costs for these months:
    if month is text:
    January, February, March

      if months are given in month format:
      1/1/2016; 2/10/2016; 3/25/2016

      What is the formula to sum those costs based on the months?
      I am not sure if I should use SUMIF (as an array) or SUM PRODUCT.

      Please see attached spreadsheet with necessary data and the formulas I have used but note they are not correct formulas.  

      thank you in advance....

      See if this works for you...

      =SUMPRODUCT(($B$5:$ALD$5<>"")*(TEXT($B$5:$ALD$5,"mmmm")=B$15)*$B$6:$ALD$6)

      Would you have a suggestion for the months in digit format (ie 1/1/2016)

      If the dates criteria are in row7, try this....

      =SUMPRODUCT(($B$5:$ALD$5<>"")*(MONTH($B$5:$ALD$5)=MONTH(B$7))*$B$6:$ALD$6)
