:confused: Hello,

I am having trouble getting the following formula work for the month of January: =SUMPRODUCT(--(TEXT('Definitized UCAs'!$L$3:$L$6000,"mmm")=B16))
It is counting the number of definitized items per month for the fiscal year (October 2009 - September 2010), B16 refers to the month of October, C16 is November and so on. It works for every month but January 2010. Can anyone help me with my problem?

Welcome to the board...

What exactly is in B16?

Is it a formula, manually entered text?
Is it actually a date, just formatted to show the month only?

The problem is that TEXT function will make a blank cell "Jan" so you need to add a check to ensure they aren't blank, i.e.

=SUMPRODUCT(--(TEXT('Definitized UCAs'!$L$3:$L$6000,"mmm")=B16),--('Definitized UCAs'!$L$3:$L$6000<>""))

Thanks for your help! I actually fixed my problem with the formula below! Oh and B16, C16 etc referred to the text of the month (Oct,Nov, and so on).

=SUMPRODUCT(--ISNUMBER('Definitized UCAs'!$L$3:$L$6000),--(TEXT('Definitized UCAs'!$L$3:$L$6000,"mmm")=E16))
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
