Hello
I have a list of costs to be divided for a list of users.
Is it possible to allocate the costs, which the date range concerning, to users on the days of use?

NB if in one day more users use the same service / cost, the cost must be divided by the number of users

Explanation:
The daily cost of FOOD from 2019/01/01 to 2019/02/28 should be divided into 2 for Matthew and Alex but, from 2019/03/01 to 2019/03/31 it should be shared only for Alex
The daily cost of DRINKS from 2019/02/01 to 2019/02/28 should be divided into 2 for Matthew and Alex but, from 2019/03/01 to 2019/03/31 it should be shared only for Alex

Hi,

I thought it was a subject already discussed and not being able to find it but continuing with research I cannot find
I think the solution is to use SUMPRODUCT but I am not able to use it

Is my request not clear?

You could do it with a running cumulative for all Costs then use sumifs and countifs to spread out the costs.
