Formula Help



Looking for a little quick assistance. Not sure why I can figure this out, but I guess I'm just not as intuitive with the SmartSheet logic.

I have a metrics sheet that I am using to provide data from other sheets to populate a dashboard. I currently have this formula and similar formulas that pull data within a given year:

=COUNTIF({Created Date Range}, IFERROR(YEAR(@cell), 0) = YEAR(TODAY()))

This issue with this is that once the new year comes, all of my data will go away. How do I make this pull information from "2018?" I assumed it would be ...YEAR(2018), but that's not the case. Any help is appreciated.

    Try one of these. 

    =COUNTIF({Created Date Range}, IFERROR(YEAR(@cell), 0) = 2018)

    =COUNTIF({Created Date Range}, IFERROR(YEAR(@cell), 0) = "2018")

    If they don't work let me know what error you're getting. 

  • That seemed to work, thanks!

    How about if I wanted to also parse out date by the month within a particular year?

    For instance, I am using this formula to calculate and report a sales commission based on a sales tracking sheet. This current formula calculates the commission based on a particular month, but does not separate by year.

    =SUM(0.05 * (SUMIF({Consulting Time Tracker/Billing Range 1}, IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = 12, {Consulting Time Tracker/Billing Range 2})))

    Not sure if you figured this out or not but you can use SUMIFS to provide multiple criterion. You can repeat the same range and check the month as well.
