I have a new client sheet I'm trying to get working to track hard costs.

This is from a template created from another client sheet that works fine.

This new sheet formulas are all showing #BLOCKED in their cells. Here is the formula:

=SUMIFS(Amount:Amount, [Date Charged]:[Date Charged], @cell > $[Date-Formula]$1, [Date Charged]:[Date Charged], @cell < $[Date-Formula]$4, Project:Project, PARENT($[email protected]), [Charge Description]:[Charge Description], $[email protected])

Again, this same formula format is working fine in several other sheets that also track hard cost for other clients. The time sheet for this new client uses a variant of the same formula for totaling time entries and it's working fine.

I have double, triple, quadruple checked column names, rows, syntax, etc. I'm sure it is something simple, I'm just not able to see the trees for the forest.

Thank you for any help.




If any of your ranges have other formulas in them, check those for an error message. I have found that typically I get a BLOCKED error when a cell with an improper formula is referenced. Basically work backwards looking at all of your data for any issues there. It may not be an issue with the formula you posted above, but with a formula elsewhere that is being referenced.

Are you able to provide some screenshots of the original working and the new one not?
