SUMIF or SUMIFS for time accrued after a date

I have time tracking sheets with Date Worked and Time worked columns.

I need to create a formula for totaling Time Worked after a specific date.

Say that 11/1/2017 is the cutoff and I need a sum of all time or time by a specific employee after that date.

Is there a way to do this?

    Hi Jerry,

    For tracking hours worked in this way, you can take advantage of the @cell argument. In this context, we can leverage @cell to  check if each date in the Date Worked column is after 11/01/2017

    Here are 2 similar formulas. Each will accomplish the same goal:

    1. Here is a version that references a date in row 1 of a column called "Cutoff Date".  This version makes it easy to change the date if you have many instances of the formula that all use the same date.

    =SUMIF(Date:Date, @cell > [Cutoff Date]1, Time:Time)


    2. Here is a version that specifies the date within the formula. This is best suited for situations where you don't expect to change the date in each instance of the formula.

    =SUMIF([Date Worked]:[Date Worked], @cell > DATE(2017, 11, 1), [Time Worked]:[Time Worked])
