Hi guys/girls im fairly new to excel and am trying to make my business database more user friendly....my problem is this....
I have a worksheet that contains my business purchases for each month.
I have colums for day/date etc and Product and Cost........I have an array formula that returns the value of lets say Materials purchased for the given month.
As i make new purchases I need the formula to take into account each new row that is added,, is this possible??? an example of the formula is...=SUM(IF($C$774="Advertising",$F$774,0))

Once a month is completed the new month starts in the next row so the formula is then repeated to give the results for that month.....the results are used in a second worksheet which is the cashflow so they need to be kept seperate from the previous months .
I previousely just filtered the results by month and type then pasted them to the cashflow but that is now proving too time consuming....can you help????
Sorry this was so long!!!

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

You seem to have an array formula without any array, just a single cell. That said it is possible to search for two matching criteria by using concatenation.

ie. {sum(if(a1&b1=c2:c50&d2:d50,e2:e50))} By using this you can get it to check for month and type.

Not sure if this answers your question, but hope it helps

Hi:

Have you considered a pivot table approach?
