Excel filter: How do I add only data for a given month?

I have an Excel worksheet that logs hikes. The columns are date, location, miles, notes. The rows are hikes. I have a summary worksheet in the same workbook that I use to track progression. Things like cumulative miles for the year, average miles per month. I'd like to add month by month totals. I want to write a formula that will sum the distance only for a particular month (for example, January). I need a formula that will test if the hike occurred in that month, then add the miles to the sum. What would this formula look like?

stymied by excel

There has to be an answer for this, but I just can't figure it out. In Excel, I've got 5 columns (A-E). I need to return a list of values from column A if either column B or C equals 'foo', *and* if either column D or E equals 'bar'. What's the magical formula (or whathaveyou) that will make this happen? For bonus points, results need to appear on a separate tab than the source data. asking on behalf of mrs spinturtle, I personally have no idea what I'm talking about.
