I'm not sure why but when using this formula

=IF(U2<>"", MATCH(U2,R:R, 0), "")

to try and match a value that is typed into cell U2 with the same value that is obtained somewhere in column R with the formula

=IF(M2<>"", SUMIF(C:C, C2,M:M ), "")

doesn't work. It only matches the values if i copy column R and paste values. Any ideas anyone??

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

It could be format. Sometimes if the number is derived from a different system, this can happen.
