I'd like to calculate my revenues in a given trimester, based on the invoice total and the date it was paid.

Column B - invoices to add up
Column E - date paid

Here is my attempt (which comes up with an error):

=sumifs(Paiement!B2:B100; Paiement!E2:E100; "=>01/01/2014", "<01/04/2014")

Any ideas? Sorry if this has been answered already, but I couldn't seem to get formulas in other answers to work when I applied them to my case!

You are very close: the only mistake is not stating the range to which the second criterion is to be applied. Recall the syntax of SUMIFS:

SUMIFS(sum_range, criteria_range1, criterion1, [criteria_range2, criterion2, ...])

So, you need

=sumifs(Paiement!B2:B100; Paiement!E2:E100; ">=01/01/2014"; Paiement!E2:E100; "<01/04/2014")

(You may think it's obvious that the second criterion is also to be applied to the same E column, but it's not obvious to the software.)

  • Thank you for explaining this so clearly, it worked! Small correction (my mistake), it should be ">=" and not "=>"
