hi,

I'm trying to build a table with dates in column C and values (money) in column D.

I want to count the sum of the values in column D it the date in the same row in column C is smaller then the present date.

The formula I made looks like this:

=sum.if(c2:c9;<"now()";D2:d9). 

But the total sum does not show up. It stays zero.

Actually I am using the Dutch equivalent of this formula, but that should not make a difference, I think.

 

Is it possible to compare dates in the sum.if-formula, or am I doing something wrong?

I hope someone can help me.

 

Lex

@Lex_Albers , it's like

=sum.if(c2:c9;"<" & TODAY();D2:d9)

Better to use TODAY() (if the function has the same name in your locale), it returns date only. NOW() returns date and time.

Thank you very much. It works fine.
In Dutch TODAY() is VANDAAG() :)
