EXCEL - Sumproduct using AND statement?

Posted on 2016-10-25
Last Modified: 2016-10-26
First post, let's get to it!

I use a formula like this in my sheet -


This grabs a number if the value matches my columns month.

My problem is last years data is being added in again for last october, so I need a way to make it check for month and year.

I have many sheets, each for a different stage of business. Lets say I sold a product, I store that sale as 10/25/2016. Then, I have a summary sheet, which uses the sumproduct to retrieve this data later.

How can I change the formula up top to reflect this? I could add the current year somewhere in an open cell.

Open to ideas if there's an easier way using a totally different formula too! Thanks!

you can try formula:
=(SUMPRODUCT(--(TEXT(Sales[Date],"mmmm yy")=E$2),Sales[Total]))

Open in new window

and make sure E$2 returns something like: October 16 instead.

It doesn't work. I'm not sure how you intended to format F2. "November 16". Reformats to Custom "16-Nov"
