(Excel examples for Beginners)
In this end-to-end excel example, you will learn – How to Count dates in given year in Excel.
To count dates in a given year, you can use the SUMPRODUCT and YEAR functions. In the example shown, the formula in E5 is:
where “dates” the a named range B5:B15.
How this formula works
The YEAR function extracts the year from a valid date. In this case, we are giving YEAR and array of dates in the named range “dates”, so we get back an array of results:
Each date is compared to the year value in column D, to produce an array or TRUE FALSE values:
For the formula in E5, TRUE values are cases where dates are in the year 2017, and FALSE values represent dates in any other year.
Next, we use a double negative to coerce the TRUE FALSE values to 1’s and 0’s. Inside SUMPRODUCT, we now have:
Finally, with only one array to work with, SUMPRODUCT sums the items in the array and returns a result, 3.
