# Using COUNTIF and SUMIF with dates

Options
edited 12/09/19

Hi everyone,

I need help understanding how I can use dates in COUNTIF and SUMIF formulas.  I have all other parts of the formula working but as soon as I try and add a date condition at all it fails.  What I need is something that makes it include all rows where the date in the column Date Closed is the current month.

My current formula looks like: =COUNTIFS({Bus Unit}, "QUARRIES VIC METRO", {RFI STATUS}, "CLOSED", {DATE CLOSED}, "MISSING BIT")

Can anyone help me with what goes in the missing bit?

Thanks

This is a piece of a formula I've used to identify a specific month for conditional formulas:

[Date Range], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = 1

Where the = 1 is looking for January. If the Cell is blank, it'll just move on and not toss you an error.

Without testing, your formula would look something like this:

=COUNTIFS({Bus Unit}, "QUARRIES VIC METRO", {RFI STATUS}, "CLOSED", {DATE CLOSED}, IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0 =1)

If you need a specific date, you would simply use a DATE(yyyy,mm,dd) in place of the MONTH function shown above. The same thing can be said for any other date related functions such as YEAR, WEEKNUMBER, YEARDAY, WEEKDAY, DAY, etc...
