# Need Help Pasting Formulas

#### rdenzil

I used the conditional sum wizard to create a formula. The formula uses absolute values (\$). When I copy/paste the formula to a new cell, it copies just fine, but when I make a minor change in the formula it returns #VALUE!.

This is my formula: =SUM(IF(\$B\$6:\$B\$58>=DATEVALUE("01/05/2004"),IF(\$B\$6:\$B\$58<=DATEVALUE("01/09/2004"),IF(\$D\$6:\$D\$58="P",\$E\$6:\$E\$58,0),0),0))

If I copy/paste this to a new cell and change one of the dates, or "p" to another constraint it returns #VALUE!.

Hope you can help.
Thanks!

It should be entered as an array formula, be careful when copying and pasting that the {} are entered by Excel.

you can also use,

=SUMPRODUCT(--(B6:B58>=A1),--(B6:B58<=A2),--(D6:D58="P"),E6:E58)

Where A1 and A2 houses dates of interest and entered normally.

Thank you Thank you!

That worked great.
