Summing Cells with Text and Numbers
Is it possible to use the Sumif function to add numbers with a specific
designator in front of it? Eg. A row contains strings like: S8, S10, V5, S5 Is there a formula that can total the S's? (Total would be 23)

Trevor,
With your 'numbers in a1  d1 try this =SUMPRODUCT((LEFT(A11,1)="S")*(RIGHT(A11,LEN(A 11)1))) Mike "Trevor Little" wrote: Is it possible to use the Sumif function to add numbers with a specific designator in front of it?

=SUMPRODUCT((LEFT(A11)="S")*(MID(A11,2,20)))

Thanks a lot Mike, the formula worked perfectly. How does the "Len(x:x)"
Formula work? is it just the leftovers of the text? (Just as one addition, I found that it wouldn't quite work for me until I used the "Value(...)" formula in front of the number I wanted to use.) Thanks again.

Thanks Bernard, This formula worked perfectly for me as well.
The same with the note I left on Mike's formula, I also had to use the "value(..)" formula in order to have it it take the last part of the number as a "number" value. Thanks again.

The part (LEFT(A11)="S") will return Boolean FALSE/TRUE
But when Excel does math (here multiplication) on Boolean it converts this to 0/1 Similarly text that can be converted to numbers will get cohered to numbers with in a math operation.

Hi Mike,
I just came across one problem with the formula that I haven't been able to figure out. It doesn't seem to work, if 1 of the cells in the array is blank... is there a way of putting in a condition where it ignores the blank cells? Thanks again.

=SUMPRODUCT((LEFT(A11)="S")*VALUE((MID(A11,2,2 0))))
VALUE is needed if there are any empty cells Bernard "Trevor Little" wrote in message ... Hi Bernard, I just came across one problem with the formula that I haven't been able to figure out.

Good morning Bernard,
I triedusing the MID formula and it is still turning up a result of "#VALUE!" when a cell is blank. The formula I am using is: =SUMPRODUCT((LEFT(C29:AG29,1)="S")*VALUE((MID(C29: AG29,2,20)))) The data that is in those cells are the same as below: (EG. V8, S10, T6, B4, S4... etc and blanks) Thanks again for your patience.
