I am quickly losing patience with a task that requires a sum of values that occur on the same date,
but at different times.

My raw data sheet is in 4 columns [spaced for comprehension]
Date/Time [stamp] | Value 1| Value Y| Value z
2021-10-08 08:00:00|    5   |    7   |   0.15
2021-10-08 14:05:16|    3   |   10   |   5
2021-10-09 10:05:30|   15   |    3   |  25
2021-10-09 18:00:00|   15   |    9   |   6
...
..
.

I have a secondary sheet with just the date i.e. 2010-10-08, acquired with formula
`=LEFT(\$Data.A4,10)'. Column B of this sheet needs to be the SUM of all the numbers in the 3rd
column, BUT only for the date in column A i.e.

2010-10-08| 17
2010-10-09| 12
...
..

Just trying to understand your question properly, so for clarification:
(1a) Your two sheets differ in column A, in that the first has a date/time stamp, the second date
only (extracted from the first)?
(1b) Does each row of the second sheet reflect the date of the corresponding row in the first
sheet (in other words, dates are repeated on the second sheet, as suggested by your formula
(\$Data.A4, \$Data.A5, \$Data.A6, ...), or is each date on the second sheet listed just once?
(2) We don't need to worry about columns B or D of the first sheet, just column C? [Any
significance to columns B-C-D being indexed in three different formats
(Numeric-UPPERCASE-lowercase)?]

```
```I have tried many Google searches and seen many videos on how this is supposed to work yet for some
reason, being race, colour, creed, or stupidity, I cannot get the result I seek. It would seem that
the summation of data with the same date, but different time component in the main data sheet is
causing an issue.
```
```
(3a) Did you try confirming that conjecture using a test example with just the date, not a
date/time stamp?
(3b) How is that date/time field acquired? Could it be acquired/input as two separate fields, date
and time?

```
```I'd really appreciate some pointers here, even if not possible. If not possible what could be done.
I just don't understand the INDEX(MATCH())/vlookupÂ  argument.
```
```
(4) [This is related to questions 1 and 3] Given that you acquire the date for your second sheet's
column A as a text field, is there a possible data type mismatch?
