To sum column C using two criteria - dates in column A and text "Rent" in column B, you can use the SUMIFS
formula. Here are the steps to follow:
- Select an empty cell where you want to display the result.
- Type the following formula:
- Press Enter.
formula allows you to sum values based on multiple criteria. In this case, we want to sum values in column C based on two criteria:
- Dates in column A that are greater than or equal to 12/1/2007 and less than or equal to 1/31/2008.
- Text "Rent" in column B.
The first argument of the formula (C:C
) is the range of values that we want to sum.
The second argument (A:A,"="&DATE(2007,12,1),A:A,"<="&DATE(2008,1,31)
) specifies the criteria for dates in column A. We use the =
operators to include all dates between 12/1/2007 and 1/31/2008. The &
symbol is used to concatenate the operators and the DATE
function that creates a date value.
The third argument (B:B,"Rent"
) specifies the criteria for text in column B. We simply use "Rent" as the text value.
The formula will return the sum of all values in column C that meet both criteria. In this example, it will return $1,000.00
