While Practising my skills I encountered following prob:

Col 'B' = Region, C= Product and D is quantities

Formula to sum quantities sold of product "Beta" to East region:

=SUM(IF((B5:B10="EAST")*(C5:C10="beta"),D5:D10, 0))

(i hope the above formula is efficient enough)

But when I put "Eastern" in any of the cell in Col 'B' it wont give me the desired result.

What sort of modification does above fomula needs if wild character than how to use it cuz i have tried that too but failed.

Please help! AND PLEASE DONT RECOMMEND SUMPRODUCT since I dont see it as a me-friendly...

Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.

Hi,

Try,

=SUM(IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("east",B5:B10))*(C5:C10="beta"),D5:D10,0))

Confirmed with Ctrl+Shift+Enter
