    Using SUMPRODUCT to count certain letters in a cell

    hello everyone. I am trying to use SUMPRODUCT on one of my excel files. the condition is that it will try to count all those cells that contain certain letters. i tried using this formula, =SUMPRODUCT(--('All Computers'!$A$2:$A$100000="USA*"),--('All Computers'!$E$2:$E$100000="June")), but I am getting a 0 value. hhope anyone can help me out on this.
