How to sum values by month and year?

As shown in the screenshot below, to sum the total amount based on October from the same year (2019), you can use a formula with the SUMIFS and EOMONTH functions.

Generic Formulas

=SUMIFS(value_range,date_range,">="&date,date_range,"<="&EOMONTH(date,0))

Arguments

Value_range: The range of values you want to sum;
Date_range: The date range where you want to evaluate the month and year;
Date: Represents the first day of a month you want to sum based on. It can be a cell reference or an exact date enclosed in double quotation marks.

How to use this formula?

In this case, $D$3:$D$11 is the range1, China is the criteria1 that locates in $G3, $E$3:$E$11 is the range2, and H$2 is the cell reference containing the criteria2.

1. Select a blank cell to output the result. In this case, I select H6.

2. Copy or enter the below formula into the selected cell and press the Enter key. Select the result cell, drag the AutoFill Handle down to get the sum by other month and year.

=SUMIFS($E$5:$E$10,$B$5:$B$10,">="&G6,$B$5:$B$10,"<="&EOMONTH(G6,0))

Note: In range G6:G7, I entered actual dates in “m/d/yyyy” format into the cells and then manually formatted the dates as “mmm-yyyy” to only display the month and year. If you manually enter the month and year as text into the cell, you will not get the correct result.

Explanation of the formula

=SUMIFS($E$5:$E$10,$B$5:$B$10,">="&G6,$B$5:$B$10,"<="&EOMONTH(G6,0))

$E$5:$E$10,$B$5:$B$10,">="&G6: Here match dates in the date range E5:E10 greater than or equal to the first day of a month in G6.
$B$5:$B$10,"<="&EOMONTH(G6,0): The EOMONTH function returns the serial number for the last day of the month provided by the date in G6. As above, here match dates in the date range E5:E10 less than or equal to the last day of the month.
Then the SUMIFS function sums the total amount by month with the above two criteria.

How to sum values by month ignore year?

With the above formula, you can only sum values by month from the same year. To sum values by month from different years, you can apply a formula based on the SUMPROFUCT and MONTH functions.

Generic formula

=SUMPRODUCT((MONTH(date_range)=month)*value_range)

Arguments

Date_range: The date range where you want to evaluate the month;
Month: It is a number representing the month that you will sum values based on;
Value_range: The range of values you want to sum;

How to use this formula?

1. Select a blank cell. Here I select H6.

2. Copy or enter the below formula into it and press the Enter key to get the result.

=SUMPRODUCT((MONTH($B$5:$B$10)=10)*$E$5:$E$10)

Note: In the formula, the number 10 represents the month October. The numbers 1 to 12 separately represent January to December, and you can change it according to your needs.

Explanation of the formula

=SUMPRODUCT((MONTH($B$5:$B$10)=10)*$E$5:$E$10)

MONTH($B$5:$B$10)=10: The MONTH function extracts the month number from each date cell in the range B5:B10: {10;10;12;12;10;10}, and compare each number in the array with the number 10: {10;10;12;12;10;10}=10, finally it returns a TRUE FALSE array {TRUE;TRUE;FALSE;FALSE;TRUE;TRUE}.
{TRUE;TRUE;FALSE;FALSE;TRUE;TRUE}*$E$5:$E$10: This array is multiplied by each amount associated with the month October, and you will get a new array like this {1428;2010;0;0;2069;1728};
SUMPRODUCT{1428;2010;0;0;2069;1728}: The SUMPRODUCT function finally adds up all numbers in the array and returns the result as 7235.
