#### Matching data in different sheets but slight difference in time va

```Hi
I have two sheets as follows:

Sheet 1:
Date             / Time          / Number Dailled         / Duration
/Cost
22/1/10         10:00           01234123456               00:01:57       0.789

Sheet 2:
Date             / Time          / Number Dailled         / Duration
/Extension
22/1/10         10:02           01234123456               00:01:56       1501

I am trying to put the cost of the phone call against the relevant extension
on sheet 2 that has dialled the number dialled.  Obviously I can match the
number dialled in both cases, and the date, but there may be calls made to
that same number by that same extension on that same date but at a different
time, so I need to incorporate the time into the formula, to say if the date
matches and the number dialled matches, and the time difference between the
two is (say) less than 3 minutes (as that is about the difference I am
looking at) then give me the cost of that call in the column next to the
extension number on Sheet 2.

Sorry for the waffle but can anybody help.
Thank you

```

```If I understand the question, this might work for you
=SUMPRODUCT(--(Sheet1!A2:A10=A2),--(Sheet1!C2:C10=C2),--(Sheet1!B2:B10>=B2-TIME(0,3,0)),--(Sheet1!B2:B10<=B2+TIME(0,3,0)),Sheet1!E2:E10)

I put you data in row 1 for the two sheets  (with headers) and made up some
extra data down to row 10. You will need to adjust the ranges. Unless you
have Excel 2007, SUMPRODUCT cannot use full column ranges as in A:A. The
third and fourth terms specify that the times in Sheet1 must be within
plus/minus 3 mins of the time in Sheet2

```Hi Bernard

Many thanks for your help but I am getting an #Value!?

Sheet 1
Call start date	Call start time  Number	Duration	Cost
28/01/2010	11:47:16	0800100607	00:01:58	£0.15
22/01/2010	13:15:57	0800420421	00:00:07	£0.00
22/01/2010	16:52:15	0800602090	00:00:44	£0.00
26/01/2010	16:12:08	0800800160	00:00:54	£0.00
15/01/2010	11:21:28	01132223222	00:00:52	£0.01

Sheet 2 (there is a sum total in row 2)
Start	   Time	Telephone No	Duration   First Rang
28/01/2010  11:49:46	0800100607	117	1011	#VALUE!
22/01/2010  13:19:26	0800420421	6	1510
22/01/2010  16:55:40	0800602090	44	1545
26/01/2010  16:15:44	0800800160	53	1513
15/01/2010  11:24:41	01132221234	51	1032
29/01/2010  12:16:31	01132345678	41	1557

This is my formula:
=SUMPRODUCT(--(Sheet1!A3:A4350=A2),--(Sheet1!C3:C4350=C2),--(Sheet1!B2:B4350>=B2-TIME(0,3,0)),--(Sheet1!B2:B4350<=B2+TIME(0,3,0)),Sheet1!E2:E4350)

where am i going wrong. There is a lot more data in Sheet2 so they dont
follow in the same order on both sheets.

```Hi Bernard

I think I have done it, but I cannot get it to calculate!
The worksheet is about 2665kb in size but when I press the f9 to calculate
the "calculating:(2 processor(s)):0%" doesnt move - left it for 15 mins.
Is that my memory on my machine or something else?

```I believe it is the sumproduct - is there another formula I can use?
Also see the following revised worksheets.....

I have changed the formula to be in Sheet1 so that the formula represents
the relevant extension in sheet1 that is in sheet2 using the following formula

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Sheet2!B:B=A2995),--(Sheet2!F:F=H2995),--(B2995+TIME(0,4,0)>=Sheet2!C:C),--(B2995-TIME(0,2,0)<=Sheet2!C:C),Sheet2!L:L)

Here is a sample of records from sheet 1 with the resulting extension at the
end. The third column is duration (in seconds).  Why am I getting 3095 and
3098's - they should go no higher that 1599?  Its adding two columns for some
reason as the calls are quite close together:

14/01/2010	15:53:24	40	07899941346	£0.035	1549
14/01/2010	15:55:48	609	07899941346	£0.533	3095
14/01/2010	17:04:37	52	07899941346	£0.046	1549
15/01/2010	08:27:49	229	07899941346	£0.200	1549
15/01/2010	08:34:16	11	07899941346	£0.010	1547
15/01/2010	08:38:25	5	07899941346	£0.004	1547
15/01/2010	08:45:37	6	07899941346	£0.005	3098
15/01/2010	08:46:14	30	07899941346	£0.026	3098

This is sheet 2 with the call data- duration here is column 4:

14/01/2010	15:55:52	07899941346	38	1549
14/01/2010	15:58:28	07899941346	608	1546
14/01/2010	17:06:59	07899941346	51	1549
15/01/2010	08:30:38	07899941346	228	1549
15/01/2010	08:37:15	07899941346	12	1547
15/01/2010	08:41:36	07899941346	4	1547
15/01/2010	08:48:37	07899941346	5	1549
15/01/2010	08:49:11	07899941346	29	1549

I have tried incorporating the duration Sheet1 - 1 second is not necessarily
sheet 2 - it could be Sheet1 plus 1 second to match Sheet 2.

Sorry about the waffle but hope making sense

```Not sure how we get to A2995 !
Want to send me a sample file? Get my email from my website
You are using Excel 2007, I hope since full column references like B:B are
not legal in earlier versions
