I am wishing to sum a data set based on the following date intervals:
"1-5"   "6-15"   "16-25"    "26- end of month"

Grateful for your help.

With a minor tweak to the data you could also use a Pivot Table.

In a spare area of the sheet set up the following small table:

1      1-5
6      6-15
16      16-25
26      26-Month End

In a new column next to your data use the following formula to group the dates:

=VLOOKUP(DAY(A4),$T$3:$U$6,2)   where T3:U6 is your small table.

You can then use the Group field as a row value in a Pivot Table to summarise the data.
