    2nd attempt ~ Faster/Shorter formula

    Is there a way to add the numbers in row 2 that have the same date so that if
    the result is Equal to, OR, minus 1 to 3 before, OR, plus 1 to 3 over (say
    30), then diplay the result, otherwise display nothing?
    Formula needs to be in row 3 and if the date are different, as in B1, then
    the calculation would start over with the new date in the next column.
    Desired results are shown in row 3
    My attempts have resulted in formula that is too long.

    Would the row 1 dates always be ordered older to newer left to right? If so,
    enter the following formula in B3.

    B3:
    =IF(COUNTIF($A$1:A$1,B$1)=0,SUMIF(B$1:$IV$1,B$1,B$2:$IV$2),"")

    Fill B3 right as far as needed.

    Harlan, Thanks for looking.
    Yes that's right, date older to never.
    Your formula is great for adding the Row 2 together progressively. However,
    I need it to add the numbers in row 2 that have the same date, Then if the
    result is Equal to, say 30 days, OR, minus 1 to 3 before, OR, plus 1 to 3
    over 30 days, then diplay the result, otherwise display nothing.

    For example, I have added columns to the original post.
    Notice C2=20, C3="" then D2=7, D3=27 (3 days before total of 30 days), and
    in E2=5, E3=32 but F2=2, F3="" (because the result would be 34, 1 day overthe
    desired criteria)
    e.g. In D2 the numbers 7 thru 13 would have results in D3 (30-3=27, 30-2=28,
    30-1=29, 30-0=30, 30+1=31, 30+2=32 and 30+3=33). Anything else would result
    in "".

    So you need to catch the range 27 to 33. Outside that range display
    nothing ("").

    But C1 and D1 differ. Are you changing specs, or is that a typo?

    ....

    This is unclear. First you mention 'same date', but your examples show
    different dates. You either need to fix your examples or your specs. If
    the dates in the examples above are correct, then you're *not* matching
    same dates.

    Using years makes the formulas a bit more complicated.

    B3:
    =IF(AND(SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR($A$1:A$1)=YEAR(B$1)))=0,
    ABS(SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR(B$1:$IV$1)=YEAR(B$1)),B$2:$IV$2)-30)<=3),
    SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR(B$1:$IV$1)=YEAR(B$1)),B$2:$IV$2),"")

    Fill right as needed.

    Yes, a bit complicated. Formula in B3 (fill right) returns #VALUE! If I
    jockey the formula around a bit and put it in C3 (fill right) I get all
    blanks in row 3.
    I will keep after it. Please let me know if you see something that needs
    corrected. I'll do the same.

    My fault. Didn't test. The col B formula can't be the same as the col C
    and further right formulas.

    B3:
    =IF(ABS(SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR(B$1:$IV$1)=YEAR(B$1)),B$2:$IV$2)-30)<=3,
    SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR(B$1:$IV$1)=YEAR(B$1)),B$2:$IV$2),"")

    I see this as the column B3 formula to go into B3 and stay put. The Column
    C3 formula to go into C3 and can be filled right as needed.
    If that is correct I get blank cells throughout. I tried some other
    variations with no luck.
    However, I am on my work pc (different excel version) at this moment so I
    will give it a go on my pc at home in a couple hours.

    B3:
    =IF(ABS(SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR(B$1:$IV$1)=YEAR(B$1)),B$2:$IV$2)-30)<=3,
    SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR(B$1:$IV$1)=YEAR(B$1)),B$2:$IV$2),"")

    C3:
    =IF(AND(SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR($B$1:B$1)=YEAR(C$1)))=0,
    ABS(SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR(C$1:$IV$1)=YEAR(C$1)),C$2:$IV$2)-30)<=3),

    My fault. Didn't test. The col B formula can't be the same as the col C
    and further right formulas.

    Curious enough, if I put, in D2, either of the numbers 0 to 6 then C3
    displays 27 to 33 respectively. This is very close to the goal but because
    C2+D2=27 (30-3) then D3 should display 27 rather than C3, (i.e. To get
    results in D3, D2 can = 7 to13, therefore D3 would = 27 to 33 respectively).

    What I see happening, C3 is adding C2+D2 and if the sum is <20 or >27 then
    results are "", but if the results are >=20 and <=26 then I see reults.
    Again however in C3 rather than the desired D3 (intended >=27 and <=33)

    I dare to point out that if by chance D2 was a 1 (rather than a 7) would the
    formula then sum C2+D2+E2 to see if its sum is the intended >=27 and <=33,
    if not, then sum C2+D2+E2+F2 and so on (keep in mind the year) and
    displaying the results in the final cell i.e F2.

    In this case a revelation takes place (the following table changed for the
    sake of argument and to correct an issue I didn't catch earlier). I
    appologize, I got so wrapped up in this that I didn't make sure date (days)
    were consistant with the count in row 2, and, B3 should have NEVER equalled
    16.
