# Excel/Today() in a sumifs formula

Question
I am working on an aging report.  Column of invoice date,up to three years old (say in column A).  Column of invoice totals, next to their invoice number (say in column B).  I thought I could use something along the lines of =sumifs(b4:b1000,a4:a1000,"<=TODAY()",a4:a1000,"<TODAY()-30")
MONTH() might also work, perhaps better.  I was wanting 30 - 60 - 90 days etc. totals in each column.  I could do sumifs and use actual dates but would have to change the days in each formula every month.  Was just trying to make it more automatic.  Thanks for any help you can provide.

Missy,

Not being an accountant, I don't have any particular knowledge of an aging report.

However, given the formula you show,

=sumifs(b4:b1000,a4:a1000,"<=TODAY()",a4:a1000,"<TODAY()-30")

You would need to do

=sumifs(b4:b1000,a4:a1000,"<="&TODAY(),a4:a1000,"<"&TODAY()-30)

hope that provides the information you need.
