Is CVN the text "CVN"?
Try this

searchview= "<>""CVN"""

You can ignore the previous comment.
Now that I have had a chance to test it, this works fine for me (Excel 2010)

searchview = "<>CVN"
MsgBox WorksheetFunction.SumIf(Range("A1:A10"), searchview, Range("B1:B10"))

Is the text CVN exactly or does it have extra spaces after?

there are no extra spaces it is exactly CVN
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

I think the key was to re-evaluate whether the text was in fact "CVN" exactly.
I was also of the mind like aikimark that quotes were required, but not so from VBA/worksheetfunction.
