    Hi Lisa,

    Try something like this.

    =SUMIF(Source:Source; "Backlog"; [Jan 2020]:[Jan 2020])

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

    =SUMIF(Source:Source, "Backlog", [Jan 2020]:[Jan 2020])

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

    Did it work?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic week!
