SUMPRODUCT FORMULA IN EXCEL

Hello.  I'm using a SUMPRODUCT formula as follows:  =SUMPRODUCT(('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$H$9:$H$11="036")*('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$I$9:$I$11>=1)*('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$I$9:$I$11<=1499)*('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$M$9:$M$11>0)*('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$N$9:$N$11>0)).

I put quotation marks around the 036 in $H$9:$H$11="036" because if I don't put quotation marks around 036,  Excel changes it to 36.  Excel seems to be accepting it as a correct formula.  Is this okay and will it work?

Thank you!

It will work in that it will count values in that range that are text-formatted as "036". Without seeing your data I can't tell if that's right for you here.
One option would be to "coerce" the range $H$9:$H$11 to numeric and just use 36, i.e.
=SUMPRODUCT(('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$H$9:$H$11+0=36)*('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$I$9:$I$11>=1)*('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$I$9:$I$11<=1499)*('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$M$9:$M$11>0)*('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$N$9:$N$11>0))
that will fail, however, if H9:H11 contains any text values that can't be coerced to numbers.....

Thanks Barry.  I went in and formatted all the cells in column H as Text.  I hope it works.

Thanks so much for your help!

If you have existing numbers in the range and format as text at that point then I don't believe that will actually change the values to text.
....a better approach than the first one I suggested, try this formula
=SUMPRODUCT((TEXT('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$H$9:$H$11,"000")="036")*('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$I$9:$I$11>=1)*('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$I$9:$I$11<=1499)*('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$M$9:$M$11>0)*('wisconsin 006 036 11-1-08 to 4-'!$N$9:$N$11>0))
