    Using IF statements to create totals where words are involved

    I am creating a roster based around multiple employees working different swings and down the bottom I want a total for combined hours for the day which I will be then using to calculate daily income generated.

    The roster however has different words depending on an employees stage. For example 10 people might be on week 1 of their swing (W1), 10 on week 2 (W2) and 10 on R&R (RR). Along with this we also have codes for Holidays, Local work etc.

    I have read some articles on the "If" type formulas but only under stand the very basic 1 cell usage. I have attached a copy of an example roster so that it shows what I am talking about. Could someone please help me with the coding.

    You could put this formula in E20 and drag right

    =SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF(E$3:E$17,$A$25:$A$29), $C$25:$C$29)
    _
    ...How to Cross-post politely...
    ..Wrap code by selecting the code and clicking the # or read this. Thank you.

    Worked absolutely perfectly. Had to make some minor changes to the roster template to account for the values and it worked a treat. Thank you so much for the solution plus it taught me a little more about excel.

    Cheers
