I have a table with some values that i want to sum according the year, name a store, and them according the current month...

(I want to sum the accumulated values since the beginning of the month)

I have a VLookup that gets me the text i want in the array:

 4 4,5 4,5,6 4,5,6,7 4,5,6,7,8 4,5,6,7,8,9,10 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16

<colgroup><col width="221" style="width: 166pt;"></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>

And using a concatenate i get in the cell per. eg. F2 {[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12}[/FONT]

[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]After getting this value i want to use it in my array:

[/FONT]=SUM(VLOOKUP(CONCATENATE(C2;C6);ORCAMENTOS!B:P;F2;FALSE))

By typing the value in F2 it all works by pressing ctr+shif+enter... with F2... no result...

i?m getting #ref as an error...

any helP

### Excel Facts

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

I stand to be corrected but i dont think you can do that with native formulas. I certainly dont know how if you can. If you numbers are always consecutive then there are other formulas you could use.

If the months are consecutive then you should be able to do this in another way, perhaps using SUMIF/SUMIFS.
