sumifs will not work with a cell reference as criteria

Where cells M12 and M15 contain the number 39315 and 39317, respectively.
The formula yields no results when M12 and M15 are in the formula. However,
when I substitute the actual number in the formula, the proper result is
produced.

=SUMIFS(G2:K2,\$G\$1:\$K\$1,"=M12",\$G\$1:\$K\$1,"<=M15") does not work
=SUMIFS(G2:K2,\$G\$1:\$K\$1,"=39315",\$G\$1:\$K\$1,"<=393 17") works

Answer: sumifs will not work with a cell reference as criteria

It sounds like the issue is with using cell references as criteria in the SUMIFS formula. One solution could be to use the INDIRECT function to convert the cell reference into a cell address that can be used in the formula.

Here's an example of how you could modify the formula using the INDIRECT function:
1. =SUMIFS(G2:K2,\$G\$1:\$K\$1,"="&
Code:
`INDIRECT("M12")`
,\$G\$1:\$K\$1,"<="&
Code:
`INDIRECT("M15")`
)

This formula should work as long as the values in cells M12 and M15 are valid cell references. The INDIRECT function will convert the cell references into cell addresses that can be used in the SUMIFS formula.

Try:

=SUMIFS(G2:K2,\$G\$1:\$K\$1,"=" &M12,\$G\$1:\$K\$1,"<=" &M15)

Append the cell reference with the ampersand otherwise excel sees it as a
text value and looks for the text string

"=M12"

will look for the string "M12" not the contents

"="&M12

will look for the contents of cell M12
