I am using the following SUMIFS() function:

```
=SUMIFS(A:A, B:B, C1)
```

Column B:B contains dates in the following format:

```
2014-01-01 01:14:44
```

Now in cell C1 I’m not sure how to format the date so that it will grab all records that match all records that fit what’s in cell C1. I have the following:

```
2014-01-01
```

but it return nothing. How do it make it so that it grabs the date, but doesn’t discriminate the time portion?

You can leave `C1`

as a date and the data as it is – just change your formula to the following

`=SUMIFS(A:A,B:B,">="&C1,B:B,"<"&C1+1)`

Excel stores dates as integers, times are simply fractions of the day so every C1 date (no matter what time) falls somewhere between `C1`

and `C1+1`

. This formula gets that data

### Answer：

The simplest way may be to keep your formula as is, other than changing C1 to D1, but insert a column immediately to the right of A with:

```
=INT(C1)
```

copied down to suit.
