How do I sum numbers thru specifying the amount from another c

If you want to sum based on a date range:

M2 = lower boundary date
M3 = upper boundary date

=SUMIF(F9:F129,"="&M2,A9:A129)-SUMIF(F9:F129,""&M3,A9:A129)

Note that the boundary dates are included in the sum.

Format as General or Number

I'm trying to use multiple criteria in my SUMIF and COUNTIF functions and
I'm
unable to figure out how to nest/combine them using the same rationale as
shown below [ =SUMIF(F9:F129,"<="&M2,A9:A129) ]

I want to do something that would be like: and("<="&M2,"="&M3)
but can't get the syntax right...

Thanks

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.
