    Year to date problem

    Morning all
    I would appreciate any help that you can provide me with the following problem

    Please see attached file

    I am trying to automate my budgets so when I input the month in Cell F4 on the acc tab then the highlighted Yellow Month and Highlighted Green YTD budget comes in reading from the 2nd Budget tab.

    I have managed to solve the month one and by putting in Dec in F4 I get back the months budget of 300k but I can not seem to get the YTD to work ie for Dec it should be 500k

    I have been looking at this now for a few hours and a fresh pair of eyes may help me solve what i am doing wrong

    thanks

    There's only one Dec and it's in 2011 and it's 300k. Why 500?

    it should add Nov and Dec to give me the YTD figure of 500k the 300k is going into the month ok but the YTD is not working just comes back as 0 - its the green cell M7

    I'm still not sure what you looking for.. There's lot of reference errors in your workbook...

    Mayb, if you could write all years in Budget 2nd row (2011_2011_2012_2012_2012....._2012)

    Then you could use: =SUMIF(budget!$B$2:$N$2, acc!M7, budget!$B5:$M5)

    is that it?

    Re: Year to date problem

    thanks but this only brings back the month not the total year to date amount
    ie if I put Feb in cell F4 - I would expect
    the month (F7) to be 500
    The Year to date (M7) to be 1400

    I have the month one working perfectly its just the YTD figure that I can not get to work - im not saying my formula is correct or the right one but im struggling to find another solution

    Here, try this:

    =SUM(OFFSET(budget!$B5,0,0,,MATCH(acc!$F$4,budget!$B$3:$M$3,0)))
