Default How do I sum numbers thru specifying the amount from another cell?

What does your formula look like?

It should look like this:

=SUMIF(F9:F129,"<="&M2,A9:A129)

I cannot get SUMIF to work for me at all.

I have a Sum Range F9:F129 = numbers
I have a Criteria Range A9::A129=Dates
and I have a Criteria M2 (TODAY)
I want all numbers in the range F9:F129 to be added thus SUM all up to
TODAY
<=M2 depending on Dates in column A9:A129 but it just comes back with nil
it
doesn't seem to recognise that M2 is a number (TODAY) and thus it will not
calculate anything.
