    Wildcard to only return specific value

    Hello,

    Using wildcard, I would want to only sum the values with "ring". Using "*ring*" it also returns string. I am currently trying with "*"&Ring&"*" but it does not work.
    Formula being used:

    A-UFH 1005264 MINITEC COUPLING, RING Radiant Heating & Cooling 140
    A-UFH 1005265 MINITEC ADAPTER MALE THREAD, RING Radiant Heating & Cooling 130
    A-UFH 1034554 MULTI BEND SUPPORT STRING PLASTIC Radiant Heating & Cooling 777
    A-UFH 1034555 MULTI BEND SUPPORT STRING PLASTIC Radiant Heating & Cooling 670

    Maybe use a space before RING, ie what's inside the parentheses: ( RING&"*")

    Like this:

    =SUMIFS(E:E,A:A,"A-UFH",D:D,"Radiant Heating & Cooling",'Sales data'!C:C,"*"&" Ring"&"*")

    you'll need ; instead of ,

    Try this:

    =SUMIFS(F:F,B:B,"A-UFH",E:E,"Radiant Heating & Cooling",D:D,"* Ring*")
