Each month I want the formula for YTD to reflect the new month's actual data. They will load the label "Actual" in the column heading and replace the previously loaded forecast data. I want the formula to automatically be ready to sum accordingly for the Actual values. The spreadsheet is huge and has similar areas where this is needed and I need to avoid the user forgetting to adjust these formulas.

Code:
=SUMIF($B$2:$M$2,"Actual",$B$3:$M$3)
Where your table starts in A1. Row 2 is the headers and Row 3 is pt1 data.
