I have the following formula

SUMIFS(Daily Log::Income,Daily Log::A,"≥"&A3,Daily Log::A,"<"&A4)

that I want to sum income over the associated month. As you can see, it's not doing what I am expecting it to—how can I effect what I need?

It works by dereferencing the value of a cell directly to the condition


SUMIFS(Daily Log::Income,Daily Log::A,">=2014-07-01",Daily Log::A,"<2014-08-01")

Referencing the cell could also be made possible with the same construct; by adding ampersand followed by the cell name outside the double quotes.


SUMIFS(Daily Log::Income,Daily Log::A,">="&A3,Daily Log::A,"<"&A4)

    Thanks; this didn't exactly answer the question, but it led me to it! Numbers doesn't understand the Unicode that I used; replacing it with the >= composite fixed the issue :) If you edit to include this information, I'd be more than happy to give you the tick.
