The challenge

What formula in cell I5 will correctly sum the total cups sold after 12:00 PM on Tuesday and Thursday? Relevant cells are shaded in green. For your convenience, the following named ranges are available: data = C5:G14 times = B5:B14 days = C4:G4 Download the Excel workbook, and leave your answer as a comment below.


Where the expression (times>0.5) is equivalent to: This works because Excel handles times as fractional values of 1 day, where 6:00 AM is 0.25, 12:00 PM is 0.5, 6:00 PM is 0.75, etc. If SUMPRODUCT used this way is new to you, this formula is based on the same idea, and includes a full explanation. SUMPRODUCT may seem intimidating, but I encourage you to give it a try. It is an amazing tool. Author
