# Sumifs by time

Hi all,

I'm really struggling to crack a formula and hoping someone can advise.

I've downloaded my sales data over the last month - every transaction listed with date, time (to the second) and the value, and I am now trying to aggregate hourly sales to fit my staffing patterns.

I thought I had it with =SUMIFS(C:C,B:B,>11,B:B,<12) but it just gives me that annoying "there's something wrong, try =1+1=2, try an apostrophe if you don't want that!" type reply which is very useless...

In my sheet, column C is my transaction values, and B is the time. The plan being I'd go on to change "11" for D1, "12" for D2, and run through bar opening hours 11am to 10pm by hour, but I can't figure out what the problem with my formula is, or if its the best formula for the job. Any help would be really appreciated!

Thanks

You are missing the quotes in the criteria

=SUMIFS(C:C,B:B,">11",B:B,"<12")

Hi, thank you pgc01, for your quick reply. However, I'm still getting a returned value of 0.

In your image column B has time values. That's not what your formula is testing, it's testing the numbers 11 and 12

For the time values try:

=SUMIFS(C:C,B:B,">11:00",B:B,"<12:00")

Thank you again for your help pgc01, that did solve it.

However, I am trying to complicate things now, and want a third argument based on column D which gives the name of the day by date =text(A#,"ddd")

=SUMIFS(C:C,B:B,">11:00",B:B,"<12:00",D:D,"=Mon")

but it is returning 0 again. Can't work out where I am going wrong. Have tried a few edits to make it work but can't seem to. Any one able to point me in the right direction?

Thanks!
