Calculate cost according to date (problem with January)
Ignore my message, below I have managed to solve the problem
I have a spreadsheet which will be used to calculate printing costs for each person each month. Column A is formatted as a date, then the following columns contain information such as department, name of person then cells containing price etc.
I then have coloumns labelled months September - August (this is an academic year) to automatically calculate the amounts for each person each mong, the formula I am using is =IF(MONTH(A5)=9,E5*F5*G5,"") the formula is then copied down the column.
This puts the total amount in the September column, but if the month in column A is January =IF(MONTH(A5)=1,E5*F5*G5,"") the formula works but when copied down it displays N/A (copies down fine on all other columns even though there is no date in column A) it is only the January column which shows this error?
Any help gratefully received
