Conditional Summing involving Dates

Toologre needed to establish a quantity in his spreadsheet for items that fall between today's date and a date 30 days in the future.

XL-Dennis recommended using the SUMPRODUCT- function:

Let column A consist of dates and column B of values:

In order to get the total amount in column B:

=SUMPRODUCT((A2:A36>=DATEVALUE(TEXT(NOW(),"DD-MM-YYYY")))*(A2:A36<=(DATEVALUE(TEXT(NOW()+30,"DD-MM-YYYY"))))*B2:B36)

In order to get the number of items in A-column that falls between the dates:

=SUMPRODUCT((A2:A36>=DATEVALUE(TEXT(NOW(),"DD-MM-YYYY")))*(A2:A36<=(DATEVALUE(TEXT(NOW()+30,"DD-MM-YYYY"))))*A2:A36)
