Hello, Thank for super post. I had was able to solve few issues with it. I still have one issue isuse- I am unable to sum up if there is a number in condition column say "=SUMIF(B9:B2414;"85*";E9:E2414)" where B can contains values like "ABC", "851", "865", "LUX",etc.

Hello !
Thank you for this tuto.

Is it possible to sum numbers included in cells if those cells also include a specific word ?

For example :
"car 2"
"house 1"
"dog 7"
"plate 3"
"screen 4"
"horse 2"
"battery 9"
"floor 1"
"river 2"
"plane 0"
"butterfly 7"
"horse 1"
"plate 0"
"house 12"

Formula to find total of house ?
Answer in this examle is 13

"house 1" is the content of one cell. I can't transfer the content in to different cells.

Thanks for this. I found both techniques shown work, EXCEPT that the filter and regex method returns an N/A error if there are not matches to the filter. So when I have a number of these formulas in a column and then sum the total, using that method causes the sum to return N/A and therefore the totals to break.  However using the sumif and *KTE* method returns a sum of 0 if there are no results, so the summing of totals still works.

Hello jodamo5,I get your point. Indeed, the filter and regex method returns an #N/A error when there are no matches to filter. Therefore, I recommend the sumif method. Thanks for your notice. Your support means a lot to us. Have a great day.Sincerely,Mandy

Hey,
If I want to sum based on one of TWO specific text strains: Ex - "KTE" OR "ABC", would that be possible?

Hello, Adam,To sum the values based on more specifc text, any of the following formulas can do you a favor.=SUMIF(A2:A7, "*KTE*", B2:B7)+SUMIF(A2:A7, "*ABC*", B2:B7)
=sum(filter(B2:B7, regexmatch(A2:A7, "KTE")))+sum(filter(B2:B7, regexmatch(A2:A7, "ABC")))

Hi,

the sum if formular is really useful. However, do you know how to make the text string dynamic (meaning referring to a cell)?

E.g. "*KTE*" replaced with something like C2 if the text string is in column C already.

=sumif(A2:A9,"*KTE*",B2:B9).

Hi, Sunith,
To replace the specific text with cell reference, please apply the below formula, change the cell C2 to your need.
=sumif(A2:A9,"*"&C2&"*",B2:B9)
