    Need a formula to calculate a total in one column when a date is added in another column.

    Want to total the amount of one column on the condition that a date is entered in another column. See attachment for example. This is to track the total of invoices that have been paid.

    Try this formula in F1.

    This only works because dates are numbers. I know of no other test for dates than to test if it is a number. The downside is if you enter any other number that is not a date into column F it will return incorrect results in F1.

    You also have column F (including F1) formatted as Text. This can cause problems for calculations later. Try changing the formatting for F1 to General. You may need to recommit that formula. Then apply Text to columns to the rest of the data in column F (it's in the Data ribbon) > choose Delimited > Next > then clear all the delimiter boxes > Next > then choose the date format > Finish.

    That does not work.
    Better explanation of what I need. In the attached file it should be E not F.
    When a date is added in column E, it will add total amount from column C to running total in F1. If the cell is blank nothing is done but once the date is added it will add invoice amount to total.

    Thank you. Your in-sheet instructions said column "F". I wondered about that.

    When a date is added in column E, it will add total amount from column C to running total in F1.
    Column C are dates. Do you mean column B? Try

    You can also use sumif formula here

    =SUMIF(E4:E18,"="&"",B4:B18)
