# Will SUMIFS work with a date and a checkbox?

edited 12/09/19

I am trying a SUMIFS formula without much success. The formula needs to return the Distance if Completed Date is before 31/03/20 and Signs has been ticked/checked.

Distance (number)

Completed date (date)

Signs (checkbox)

Is this possible?

Thanks

Faz

It is and the following works:

SUMIFS(Distance:Distance, [Completed Date]:[Completed Date], <DATE(2020,3,30), Signs:Signs, 1)

Does it work in your case?

• Hi Chakm, I'm afraid not - it says #UNPARSEABLE

Hi Faz,

Chak's formula should work. Try my second one and see if that works.

Try something like this.

=SUMIFS(Distance:Distance; [Completed Date]:[Completed Date]; <DATE(2020; 3; 30); Signs:Signs; 1)

The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.

=SUMIFS(Distance:Distance, [Completed Date]:[Completed Date], <DATE(2020, 3, 30), Signs:Signs, 1)

Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

Did it work?

Have a fantastic day!

• I re-did Chak's formula and it worked. I think the issue was because the column was labelled Distance (miles) - the extra brackets were probably confusing the formula. Column renamed (without brackets ).

Thanks so much Chak (and Andree too).
