I need help with figuring out what formula to use.

In cell A3 is where the date value is. In cells E3:M3 are where the values I need to sum are located. I would like to place a formula in N3 to sum E3:M3 if A3 has a certain month located in it's date. Example...12-08-02 or 12-Aug-02. If it does not have this particular month, do not want a sum. I have sent in a similar request for this before but it was a much larger range and could not get it to work.

What is =ROMAN(40) in Excel?
The Roman numeral for 40 is XL. Bill "MrExcel" Jelen's 40th book was called MrExcel XL.

Hi bpworker,

The forms of the dates you have given (with day first, month second) is not a standard form for inputting dates in Excel, although they can be displayed this way via custom date formatting. If this is the case (i.e., that Excel is recognizing them as date values, but displaying them in a non-standard format) then the following formula should work:

=IF(MONTH(A3)=8,SUM(E3:M3),"")

where the 8 represents a test for the month of August.

If on the other hand the dates you showed in your example have been entered as strings (e.g., with a leading apostrophe) so that Excel is not recognizing them as dates at all, then another approach is required. Let me know if this is the case and I'll give you the solution for this.
