Sum of column filtered by two columns including a date range

Hi there,

I'm struggling to get a simple equivalent of - what would be in sql = count all where collumn1 = x and column2-date = year 2021

I am using a SUMIF ands it looks like this:

SUMIF((AND ((0f6969c8d5deefae2f3709fad0ebf452#TaskID;="120730"),(BETWEEN(0f6969c8d5deefae2f3709fad0ebf452#TimeStamp;, "2021-01-24T10:11:28Z", "2021-01-24T10:11:28Z"))), 0f6969c8d5deefae2f3709fad0ebf452#Total treated;) )


I've tried other approaches too - but I can't the right result or stop the dreaded "The formula returned an error." message.

In summary, my mission is to:

Sum column numbers of @Total treated where the @TimeStamp column is the year 2021 and the @TaskID column ="120730"

If anyone could help it would be massively appreciated.

Kind regards, Steve.

    Hi Steve,

    BETWEEN using UNIX dates or numbers, so you could convert your date options to UNIX, or you could use DATE_IN instead. 



    Example for DATE_IN: DATE_IN(DATE(@TimeStamp,"yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss"), year) This would be for current year. 


    Hope this helps!

    Brilliant, thanks Meggan!

    I also got a reply from Parker in support, so I'll share this info too in case there's extra detail that helps other people:

    Looking at your post, your formula would be failing because BETWEEN requires dates in UNIX format in order to return properly. 

    Beyond that though, a DATERANGE and IN formula might be a smoother way to accomplish this if you do not want dynamic date ranges. If you do want dynamic date ranges, a DATE_IN formula would be better suited. 

    This would essentially look like:

    IN(DATE(@Timestamp, "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss "),DATERANGE("1/1/2021","12/31/2021")) for exactly 2021

    DATE_IN(DATE(@TimeStamp,"yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss"), year) for the current year

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions around this! 


    I have this now working great using this query:

    SUMIF(AND((0f6969c8d5deefae2f3709fad0ebf452#TaskID;="120730"),(DATE_IN(DATE(0f6969c8d5deefae2f3709fad0ebf452#TimeStamp;,"yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss"), "1")) ),0f6969c8d5deefae2f3709fad0ebf452#Total treated;)

    Many thanks for the help :)
