# Date Format and Sumproduct

W

#### wx4usa

I have a column A for the date MM/DD/YYYY format.

I need to have a sumproduct formula look thru the database and return
sales totals for salesperson by month, day and year separately.

For example:
Column
A is date
B is salesperson
C is sales

On a separate page in the workbook, I have a report with these
selection criteria...
A1 is salesperson
A2 is month
A3 is year

I need a formula to return sales for this salesperson for the month
and for the year. Looking ahead, the report/database will span
several years.

Also, is there a way to sumproduct sales by day of the week such as
Tuesdays using the mm/dd/yyyy format?

I seem to struggle with dates and sumproduct.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

On a separate page in the workbook, I have
a report with these selection criteria...
A1 is salesperson
A2 is month
A3 is year

In A2, how are you entering the month, as the month number or the month
name?

A2 = 5 (month 5 = May)
A2 = May

name?

A2 = 5 (month 5 = May)
A2 = May

I am entering Month Name such as May.

Try these...

Sum by salesperson for month and year:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Sheet1!B1:B20=A1),--(TEXT(Sheet1!A1:A20,"mmmyyyy")=A2&A3),Sheet1!C1:C20)

Sum for a specific weekday such as Tuesday:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(TEXT(Sheet1!A1:A20,"ddd")="Tue"),Sheet1!C1:C20)

Or:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(WEEKDAY(Sheet1!A1:A20)=n),Sheet1!C1:C20)

Where n = the weekday number:

1 = Sun
2 = Mon
3 = Tue
4 = Wed
5 = Thu
6 = Fri
7 = Sat

Hi Biff

How can I also do a specific day such as Dec 1, 2009? 12/01/2009?

I tried this and it doesnt work.....
=SUMPRODUCT(--(\$B\$5:\$B\$21=\$A\$1),--(TEXT(\$A\$5:\$A\$21,"mmmmddyyy")=\$A\$2&\$A
\$3&A4),\$C\$5:\$C\$21)

where December is in a2, 1 is on a3 and 2009 is in a4

I hope this helps although shown on the same sheet and the dates are in the
European format.

The principal for summing as per weekdays is the same.
Use the WEEKDAY Function in order to check the day of the week [1-7]

It would be a lot easier if you were to just enter the whole data (as a
date) in one cell:

A2 = 12/1/2009 (or 1/12/2009 depending on your local date format)

=SUMPRODUCT(--(\$B\$5:\$B\$21=\$A\$1),--(\$A\$5:\$A\$21=\$A\$2),\$C\$5:\$C\$21)

Use cells to hold the date boundaries:

A1 = salesperson
A2 = start date
A3 = end date

=SUMPRODUCT(--(\$B\$5:\$B\$21=\$A\$1),--(\$A\$5:\$A\$21>=\$A\$2),--(\$A\$5:\$A\$21<=\$A\$3),\$C\$5:\$C\$21)
