# Conditional Sum using wild cards??

##### Board Regular
I have tried this conditional sum but receive 0 as the answer when I know it is not correct.

=SUM(IF(\$C\$2:\$C\$63="WS-C650*",\$G\$2:\$G\$63,0)

Can wild cards be used in a conditional sum?

Should I be using a different function?

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

Why not use SUMIF?

=SUMIF(\$C\$2:\$C\$63,"WS-C650*", \$G\$2:\$G\$63)

Thanks,

I guess I was over complicating the issue.

Much Appreciated!!
