I have the following formula that I'd like to wildcard the word "Seats" (Highlighted in red), although I don't believe the FILTER formula supports wildcards. I'm guessing the answer is ISNUMBER/SEARCH of some sort but can't figure it out..

=IFERROR(SUM(FILTER(FILTER('Customer Release (Daily)'!$H$2:$AN$499,'Customer Release (Daily)'!$H$1:$AN$1=C6),ISNUMBER(MATCH(LEFT('Customer Release (Daily)'!$C$2:$C$499,7)&"*",FILTER('Material Breakdown'!$C$2:$C$499,'Material Breakdown'!$B$2:$B$499="*"&" Seats"),0))))+SUM(FILTER(FILTER('VL06 (Next week)'!$G$2:$G$499,'VL06 (Next week)'!$G$1="Delivery Quantity"),ISNUMBER(MATCH(LEFT('VL06 (Next week)'!$D$2:$D$499,7)&"*",FILTER('Material Breakdown'!$C$2:$C$499,'Material Breakdown'!$B$2:$B$499="*"&" Seats"),0)))),0)

In that case can you post some sample data.

MrExcel has a tool called “XL2BB” that lets you post samples of your data that will allow us to copy/paste it to our Excel spreadsheets, so we can work with the same copy of data that you are. Instructions on using this tool can be found here: XL2BB Add-in

Note that there is also a "Test Here” forum on this board. This is a place where you can test using this tool (or any other posting techniques that you want to test) before trying to use those tools in your actual posts.
