Excel/Sum product date ranges


QUESTION: Good afternoon,

I am writing a Sumproduct formula but need to add the figures that fall on a particular date range. The date range is essentially >=Q2 & <=Q3 but i cannot get these to work in my sumproduct formula. Also as the formula is continual I need the date range to move to the next column as I drag the fomula.

Can you help?

ANSWER: Please tell me what formula you're using now.

QUESTION: =IF(-SUMPRODUCT(('EEEF '!$A$7:$A$45="Projected distribution")*('EEEF '!$C$6:$G$6=$B13)*'EEEF '!$C$7:$G$45)+SUM($O$13:O13)>0,(-SUMPRODUCT(('EEEF '!$A$7:$A$45="Projected distribution")*('EEEF '!$C$6:$G$6=$B13)*'EEEF '!$C$7:$G$45)),IF(-SUM($O13:O13)=0,0,-SUM($O13:O13)))

But I need to add a date range criteria so that within the nested sumproduct section only the items with a date in Cell Q2 and Cell Q3.

Let me know if you need more details.


ANSWER: Still missing is what cell(s) do you want to ensure lie between Q2 & Q3?

QUESTION: 'EEEF '!$B$7:$B$45

Is the date range criteria. Noting that EEEF is a sheet tab.

Is there anything else you need?


=IF(-SUMPRODUCT(('EEEF '!$A$7:$A$45="Projected distribution")*('EEEF '!$B$7:$B$45>=$Q$2)*('EEEF '!$B$7:$B$45<=$Q$3)*('EEEF '!$C$6:$G$6=$B13)*'EEEF '!$C$7:$G$45)+SUM($O$13:O13)>0,(-SUMPRODUCT(('EEEF '!$A$7:$A$45="Projected distribution")*('EEEF '!$B$7:$B$45>=$Q$2)*('EEEF '!$B$7:$B$45<=$Q$3)*('EEEF '!$C$6:$G$6=$B13)*'EEEF '!$C$7:$G$45)),IF(-SUM($O13:O13)=0,0,-SUM($O13:O13)))

but the last piece is redundant - IF(-SUM($O13:O13)=0,0,-SUM($O13:O13)) should simply be -SUM($O13:O13)
