I have column A that has dates in the "8-Oct-2021" format, I have column B that has numbers I want summed.
=SUMIF(A2:A, "*Oct*", B2:B)
I currently have the formula above, with the criteria as
"*Oct*" because there’s text before and after the ‘Oct’. I have other months so I want each month added up.
=SUMIFS(B2:B, A2:A, ">="&DATE(2021,10,1), A2:A, "<="&DATE(2021,10,30))
Above does the trick, but I’d like to keep it simple with the first formula. Suggestions?
At the moment you have numbers in range
A2:A, not text, because the dates in GS are numbers, so your formula
SUMIF() will return 0.
You can shorten your
SUMIFS() formula to
=ARRAYFORMULA(SUMIF(month(A2:A), 10, B2:B)) or to
=ARRAYFORMULA(SUMIF(text(A2:A, "mmm"), "Oct", B2:B))
