Excel/Excel formula criteria for SUMIFS statement

Advertisement


Question
I have a formula: =SUMIFS($H$38:$H$10369,$C$38:$C$10369,">"&0,$J$38:$J$10369,$L$2,$I$38:$I$10369,">"&39447) that does not resolve the third criterion correctly.  The column of data contains dates in the form mm/dd/yyyy.  However, in MS Excel, all dates are in a sequential form.  What I have done above, is to ask Excel to filter all values in column "I" that are greater than 39447 (12/31/2008).  that does now resolve for some reason.  I can send data for you to see how it works, if you would like.

What I want the criterion to be is either between two dates or the year of those dates being a specific value (or value in a referenced cell).

Answer
I would suggest the third criterion be a cell and that cell be a date that is formatted exactly the same as the column I values.

If that doesn't work for some reason, I'd suspect the dates might not be real dates in that column, but just look like dates.  It happens.

Check that and if you still can't get it working, send me the file through my site, link is below.
