# Sum a column based on dates in another column

Options

I need to create a formula (in another sheet that references the main sheet) that looks at the dates in a column (Install Date) and filter that by April (3) and show the sum of the numbers in another column (MFD Count). This is it in a nutshell but not working, of course. Thanks!
=SUMIF({Install Date}, MONTH=3, {MFD Count})

Hi Suz,

Try this :) (also, April = 4 not 3, just throwing that in as an aside :D)

=SUMIF({Install Date}, MONTH(@cell) = 4, {MFD Count})

Try this out.

=countif({Install Date},Month(@cell) =3, {MFD Count})

How ever would not April be the 4th month of the year?

Try this:

=SUMIF({Install Date}, IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = 3, {MFD Count})

I finally got it to work with: =SUMIF({Install Date}, MONTH(@cell) = 4, {MFD Count})

Thanks all!
