Count Total Number of Deposits by Month

I need a count if function to count cells which returns a date in the current month. We receive deposits on lots, column A is lot no. and Column B is date deposit paid. Refer to the attached sheet - I need formulas for the highlighted yellow cells. Thank you :) What we want basically here is to produce a report that includes the count of the total number of deposits for a particular month. However, the COUNTIF function will not accomplish the result we need. Instead, we will be using the powerful SUMPRODUCT function.

INDIRECT to extract a value from another worksheet

You can see that we have the Worksheet name in Column A and the value that is needed to be extracted in Column D. The supplied worksheet included a manually entered formula to pull through the value from the other worksheet. We will now demonstrate how to create a formula using the INDIRECT function that will automatically pull through values from other worksheets without manually entering each worksheet name and cell reference.

Lookup for Product Effort Timesheet

For this problem we received a copy of the workbook. We then used a formula to count the number of 'Product' occurences for each staff member. That count was then transferred to a staff member summary worksheet to report the total counts for all 'Products' across the team. To simplify the formula and the structure of the workbook we also recommended to record all the staff time into one worksheet for the year, rather then a separate worksheet for each month

Refer to Sheet Name in Cell Formula

A reference to another sheet always includes the sheet name (Sheet1), an exclamation (!), and the cell reference (I6). In this case we want the sheet name to be a reference from another cell in the worksheet and that whole reference to then be calculated. In each case the end of the reference is to the same cell "$I$6" which is the location of the Password in each worksheet. Then in front of that reference we want to insert the worksheet name. We need to get a combined string with the worksheet name and the cell reference, to acheive this we can use concatenation.
