How do I Count if Date is a Saturday

Certificates!

New Member
I have these three columns. I like to sum the totals in column J, but only if the date in culumn H is a Saturday.

The range is H3:H28, I3:I28 and J3:j28

I was thinking along the like of SUMIF((WEEKDAY,(H3:H28),7),J3:J28) but am not getting anywhere.

Thanks in Advance.

try
=SUMPRODUCT((WEEKDAY(A3:A28,2)=6)*(A3:A28<>""))

But are your dates - real dates?

or do you want to sum the entrants

=SUMPRODUCT((WEEKDAY(A3:A28,2)=6)*(A3:A28<>"")*(C3:C28))

Maybe this array formula works (it does work with 365):
=SUM((--(TEXT(SUBSTITUTE(H3:H28;MID(H3:H28;FIND(" ";H3:H28)-2;2);"");"ddd")="Sa"))*(J3:J28))
or the above sumproduct, replacing the weekday part with this part (--(TEXT(SUBSTITUTE(H3:H28;MID(H3:H28;FIND(" ";H3:H28)-2;2);"");"ddd")="Sa"))

You might need to confirm the "sum" with CSE for older versions, but I can't test that anymore.

* I'm on EU settings, replace ";" with "," in the formula arguments if needed.

I do want to sum the entrant and this solves the problem.

Thanks you very much.

To sum the entrants

ETAF's solution using : =SUMPRODUCT((WEEKDAY(A3:A28,2)=6)*(A3:A28<>""),C3:C28)

But the old day using : =SUMPRODUCT((MOD(A3:A28-2,7)+1=6)*(A3:A28<>""),C3:C28)

They both return the same result

I did try this one in 365 and replaced the semi-colons with commas, but I got a VALUE error I'm afraid.

I did try this one, the one you describe as the old day and it goes work fine.

Thanks very much.

I expected as much. Being on Dutch date settings, I had to change the data so it could work with my local settings.
Do consider for next time to upload a sample file, not a pasted table in the thread. We could not know whether or not you had dates or text inside those cells (looking at the formulas working, I think they were dates). Furthermore dates with "st", "nd", "rd" are not so common where I come from.

Goede Daag,

Thanks for the advice. I shall certainly bear it in mind.
