Is this what you wanted the formula to do (it is under yours)

If not, explain please exactly what the formula should do

Thank you
Customer: replied 4 years ago.


My question is:


I started the formula in sheet named 'Variance Summary', in cell B3...that is giving me errors....You may remove the ' sign in from of the = sign to have the formula that I was trying to type-in shown fully...


...overall, what I am trying to do is find dates that are LESS and EQUAL to the date shown in B1 (Variance Summary Sheet) for the range that is equal to the names shown in A3 (Variance summary) from the name list in column B in the 'June WMS 2013' sheet and sum the hours for that range only (hrs shown in 'June WMS 2013' sheet in column C.


 


Does this make sense? If not, please let me know.

sorry, this is just a simple SUMIF function that does not sum the range of the name specified...I need the IFError and Index and Match to work...just like I started above your formula...


The sumif always worked..that is not an issue. It is the Iferror part that does not. Perhaps if you great out that part so that the array is matched to look up the data in hours with the date less than/equal to specified range for the NAME range specified.


 


Please let me know as the function currently revised does not help.


Thanks,

It is a sumifS

But tell me what is not working with my formula?

Why can you not use it?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.


can we talk in a Chat (live tying format) - this is taking too long for me...


I just stated what is not working...it is the ISERROR part...not sure how else to explain it...


Have you looked at the ISERROR component of the formula?


Here is the copy of the info from above:


The sumif always worked...that is not an issue. It is the Iferror part that does not. Perhaps if you great out that part so that the array is matched to look up the data in hours with the date less than/equal to specified range for the NAME range specified.


 


The initial explanation is here:


what I am trying to do is find dates that are LESS and EQUAL to the date shown in B1 (Variance Summary Sheet) for the range that is equal to the names shown in A3 (Variance summary) from the name list in column B in the 'June WMS 2013' sheet and sum the hours for that range only (hrs shown in 'June WMS 2013' sheet in column C.


 

Expert:  Richard replied 4 years ago.
Yes, I did this as a formula for you, I am not using your formula

Just use this one.

=SUMIFS('June WMS 2013'!C:C,'June WMS 2013'!A:A,"<=" & $B$1,'June WMS 2013'!B:B,'Variance Summary'!A4)

We cannot go back to chat once we enter this mode, but your not seeing my formula, which I did in B4 which achieves what you need.

This is it

=SUMIFS('June WMS 2013'!C:C,'June WMS 2013'!A:A,"<=" & $B$1,'June WMS 2013'!B:B,'Variance Summary'!A4)

again not what I am looking for...I want the formula to SUM all the hours equal to less than the date of June 8, 2013...the correct answer is 54.5 hrs NOT 8 hrs... I need to formula to sum up all the values below and your is only summing the date on June 8...could you fix this?
