Note that the IF function does not support wildcard characters and that for regexmatch the wildcards are different and can be found here: https://github.com/google/re2/blob/master/doc/syntax.txt
In this particular instance, I used ^ to indicate that Fe & Tom occur at the beginning of text and . to allow for any following character (* would mean zero or more of the previous character, e.g. Fe* would only look for instances with 1 or more "e"s after F)

To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 8 months agoIs there a way to make this work with wildcard characters? I'd like to use it on everything starting with certain characters, but with (a fixed number of) undefined characters at the end, i.e. =SUM(IF(B1:J1="Fe*",IF(A2:A7="To*",B2:J7)))
