    Return value in X if date in Y falls between two dates - Help!

    Hi all

    I am struggling with what feels like it should be a simple solution, and it's frustrating!
    I am collecting data by date and amount, and I want to add the values into the right column on a given table so that I can use it to calculate total amount in a particular month.
    I have attached a simple example sheet to better explain what I mean.
    The formula I am using is: =IF($B$2>=DATE(2012,1,1)<=DATE(2012,1,31),$C$2,0)

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    many thanks

    Richard

    Hi Richard,

    Have you looked at using a AND() or a MONTH() in your formula?
    Easier is a Pivot Table - I'm assuming you have a lot more dates and amounts to deal with. See attached for a simple Pivot. Also Pivots are easier with newer versions of Excel.

    One test is worth a thousand opinions.

    I will take a look at that, thank you.
    I need it to work in Excel2003 as that is what the majority of users currently have!

    thanks again.

    two different formulae to achieve what you are looking for:

    if i understand your requirement correctly, this could also work:

    - i.s.z -
    CSE, aka Array aka { }, formulae are confirmed with CONTROL+SHIFT+ENTER.
    Replace commas ( , ) with semicolons ( ; ) in formulae, if your locale setting demands.
    All good ideas are courtesy resources from this forum as well as others around the web.

    Fantastic, second option works a treat, easier to manage aswell. Many thanks.

    I will still look at pivot tables though as I haven't used before.

    Thanks All
