=SUMIF($B$4:$B$134, "=CHAR(42)&management&CHAR(42)",$C$4:$C$134)

I'm trying to find all the cell that contains the word management in the description in B and sum all the corresponding values in C but the formula is not working. What am I doing wrong? Can I use this CHAR(42) expression here, Aladin? Thanks.

You need to put the word management within double quotes, but not the CHAR(42) bits. SUMIF does an equality test, if no relational operator in the condition/criteria is specified.

=SUMIF($B$4:$B$134, CHAR(42)&"management"&CHAR(42),$C$4:$C$134)

You can of course put the word management in a cell of its, say in A1, then you get:

=SUMIF($B$4:$B$134, CHAR(42)&A1&CHAR(42),$C$4:$C$134)
