I have been trying to update this formula. If the date showing in current month matches the date on my helper file then display this information. I have tried and tried and cannot get this formula to work. I continue to get #value.

I hope it's not too unreasonable to ask that you give us more than a very small image to work with.

The formula is
The workbook has to be updated daily, the person who owned the file quit the company and left no instructions on month end for this work book. The data that is needed to show is there but since I changed the month to August it won't populate for some reason if though the helper files says its August 2022. I am unable to share the file because it has name and states August 2022, look up the potentially billable number from this cell (C4) in the ccm helper file(the number changes daily). I don't care about adding last months information as a second option since that data is inaccurate.

Let's see if we can break down the formula:
=IF($A$4=HELPER!$B$4='CCM Helper'!$C$4, this conditional clause already is problematic in that it compares three values, A with B with C; was that with the original?
IF(HELPER!B6, in this next, nested conditional, there is no comparison
XLOOKUP(CCMTotalsSP[@[Pod_2]], so I'm going to stop analyzing.
Is it possible that the original formula--which, I'm presuming, did work--is still available to view? Is it possible that it was an IFS function rather than an IF function?

Is that change of date, from July to August, what's captured in cell $B$4 of HELPER! ? If not there, where is that change of date (what cell)?
How exactly are you changing the date? Specifically what are you doing? Are you using Excel date conventions OR might it be possible that you're entering the August date as a text?
Is it possible, in other words, that it's not the formula that's at fault, but rather the way you're entering the new date? [It's a question I have to ask, because that's a very possible cause of the "formula not working"]

I was able to change the date as suggested and it did not display data. However I do not have an error in that box anymore.
That's a bit difficult to understand. Good that you have no error, I guess, but "did not display data" doesn't sound so good. What exactly was your point?
