I need to sum a range if a string is contained within an array of values.

A
B
C
1
Critieria
Range
Sum Range
2
Product1Half Product140
3
Product2Product1250
4
Product3Some Product234
5
Product342
6
All Product350

<tbody>
</tbody>

In this instance I'd want to sum the whole range, as the critiera is contained within each of the cells. I've tried using SUMIFS but that only works on exact matching the criteria to the range.

Any help would be much appreciated.

How to change case of text in Excel?
Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney

That's great, thanks for that. I'd been trying the wild cards but wasn't getting the syntax quite right.
