Place the date 8/1/2016 in B7 then in C7 place the below formula
=EOMONTH(B7,0)+1

Open in new window

And copy across and then apply the custom number format to B7:E7 with "mmmm". That will show you the Month names.

Now in B8, try this Array Formula which requires confirmation with Ctrl+Shift+Enter instead of Enter alone.
in B8
=SUM(IFERROR((MONTH($B$1:$FM$1)=MONTH(B7))*$B$5:$FM$5,0))

Open in new window

and then copy across and format as currency.

For details, refer to the attached.

If you have Row2 available with the Month number populated manually, Rgonzo's formula will do the trick.
The formula I suggested didn't use the Row2 as a reference.

if I understand it correctly...

for column B8, try use formula:
=SUMIF(1:1,DATEVALUE("1 "&OFFSET( B7,0,1) &YEAR(NOW()))-1,5:5  )

Open in new window

but be careful if you handling cases which crossing the year.
