Hi,

I need a formula to sum the values in a column but only for the cells in the next column that have a specific value. In my case I have range of rainfall data for 30 years in one column with the their date in the next column. I need to sum up the value based on the months.
date is in the 19810101 format YYMMDD all in one column.
For example,
A ------------- B
19810101 ------- 1
19810102 ------- 0
19810103 ------- 22
19810104 ------- 0
19810105 ------- 10
19810106 ------- 5
19810107 ------- 2
19810108 ------- 0
19810109 ------- 0
19810110 ------- 23

I need to do that for the entire data range (10957 cells)

Hi Suranjith,

I have tried the following, check if this helps:

I have changed the dates from the below mentioned format:

19810101

To:

1/1/1981

Using the formula:

=VALUE(LEFT(A2,4)&"/"&RIGHT(LEFT(A2,6),2)&"/"&RIGHT(A2,2))

Then, using the formula:

=SUMIF($E$2:$E$60,H2,$B$2:$B$60)

I have calculated the Rain in CMs for the corresponding month.

You can download the sample sheet from the below mentioned link:

Please revert for clarification.

Thanks Zohaib for the effort. sounds interesting. Actually I too tried to resolved it. I used the excel function "Text to column" to arrange the format of the date and then break the date into different columns with YY | MM | DD and then refer to the Months column only. It worked for me. Anyway Thank you so much for the kind concern over my inquiry.. cheers
