Can I get help with a SUMIF formula for a Sheet Summary?
Is it possible to SUMIF a $ value column, based on a "this month" check box in Sheet Summary? I', using [Value]:[Value] and [This month?]:[This month?] for my columns.
Thanks!

It looks like you forgot to include the IF portion.
=IFERROR(IF(.............), "")

Can you provide some screenshots removing any sensitive data to better understand your layout and what is the the sheet summary and what is in the sheet itself.

To use a column in a summary sheet formula, just start writing the formula in the summary cell and then when you get to the part for your column, just click on it in the sheet and it will be in your formula.
For a SUMIF formula, the first range would be the month column, then the month you want it to filter for, then enter the range you want it to sum.
=SUMIF([This Month?]:[This Month?], "This Month", [Value];[Value])
Hope that helps.
Edit: I just reread it and I think you are wanting to tie in the checkbox that is on the summary sheet, correct? It would work the same way, but I am not sure of what you are wanting to do exactly with the this month checkbox in the summary. Please explain just a bit more please.

Hi @Jen Lawson,
Using your column names, see if this works for you in your Sheet Summary field, presuming everything is on the same sheet:
=SUMIF([This month?]:[This month?], @cell = 1, [Value]:[Value])
The @cell =1 is looking to see if the checkbox is checked (1).
Hope this helps!

Here's a screenshot of what I am trying to calculate. The formula I put in there, per ker9 came up as #Invalid Data Type

@Jen Lawson I think the problem may be in your This month? column. What are you using for the formula there to get it to put a check mark.

You will need to wrap whatever formula you have in the [This Month] column in an IFERROR statement so that there are no errors in that column.
=IFERROR(original_formula, "")

The question mark is actually part of the Column Name only. It's a check box column

Hi Paul
Thanks, I tried that and got an "Incorrect Argument" error. Formula was updated to =IFERROR(MONTH([Invoice Requested]@row) = MONTH(TODAY()), 1, "", "")
Do I have something extra in here?
Thank you!!
