How do I get a sumif working with two date columns as comparison conditions?


Trying to get this formula to work but kind of new to Smartsheet.

=sumifs(metres:metres, completed date:completed date, @cell<required date@cell)

I don't know I should be using a flag column, there's already a fair bit of data knocking around and I would rather just get this to work for the sheet summary field.

Essentially, I need an overall metre sum of everything that hasn't been completed by the required date.

Am I missing something?

    Hi @CamVision

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too,

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Hi Andree,

    I shared a copy of the sheet with you with users and job names(confidentiality)removed.

    Essentially, we manufacture a product in linear metres. We select a date that we need it finished by to allow for delivery on time to customer. I was hoping I could use a formula to help track this, but not just against what is currently overdue as of today but a running track of the last X days(preferably multiple levels like 30 days, 2 months, 6 months etc) so we can see how often we are missing these required dates by tracking the completed date.

    Let me know if you can figure this out cause I'm stumped.
