Calculate total over a period of time

Hey guys,


I have recently been tasked with building an app that seemed simple at first but when I got down to it I came up blank.


I have an SP list that has employee #, various transaction amounts, and the date the transaction took place. What I need the app to do is search and employee #, and return the total amount spent in any given month.


Any suggestions welcome, as I am drawing a blank here!

The following formula works in an expense account app I built.

Sum(Filter(Filter('Expense Reports', Employee.Email = currentuser ),ExpDate > DatePicker1.SelectedDate && ExpDate< DatePicker2.SelectedDate),Amount)

"Expense Reports" is the SharePoint list

Employee is a People/Group column

ExpDate is the Date the expense was incurred.

Note: Since the Date portion of the filter isn't delegable you need to be sure that there are less than 500-2000 items for a particular employee.

If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.
If you like my response, please give it a Thumbs Up.

Thanks for that, I've modified it to this:


Sum(Filter(Filter('All Fuel Query Data', 'Drivers Amount' = Dropdown2.Selected.Result ),Date > DatePicker2.SelectedDate && Date< DatePicker3.SelectedDate),Total)


With Dropdown2 holding the employee number, and Drivers Amount being the gallery field it is being fed into/ This is giving me an invalid argument type error, though I am not sure why

Disregard that, got it working, but unfortunately I can not delete reply
