    Hi Jani,

    Have you looked att using CONTAINS?

    Would that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic week!

    I am also working on this.

    I want the sum of attendees, if it is in our FY Q3 and the done column is checked.

    Alternatively, i could use a code that is if the date is up to today, then total the sum of attendees. Is there a way for it to be dynamic to today's date?
