Dear Wyman Thomas,
Supposing you need to return value of "Yes" if cell A1 contains "Apple", this formula can help you =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Apple",A1)), "Yes", "No").

=SUMIF(B2:B7,"<>"&"",A2:A7)

Dear all. I would like to use the SUMIF function in the following way: -Sum range is 1:1 -Criteria Range is 2:2 -Criteria is "jorge" However, I would like the function o work a little bit different. If "jorge" is found on B2, I would like A1 to be sum instead of A2. I tried =SUMIF(1:1,OFFSET(2:2,,1),"jorge") but excel does not accept such criteria range argument. How to get it working?

Mike I am working on the same problem I created a drop down list for column D and my costs are in column C. Simply change the name (Contracts) of the formula to your category name. =SUMIF(D2:D31,""Contracts"",C2:C31)
