Problem with SUMPRODUCT Formula

Dear Experts,
I'm using in lot's of excel files the SUMPRODUCT formula. I have to admit that this was all time in 2003 versions, now I'm setting it up with a 2007 excel version and I get only #Value as answer.
Please see my formula:
What is wrong here? I'm blind? Or something should be different in 2007 english version? I tried to replace * with ; but it did not help.
$B$2 is for example: Xerox Phaser 5335
$A5 is for example: NIK (question: Does it matter if it is NIK or nik? If I have in the Data-Import nik. How I have to modify the formula so nik will be counted as NIK?
MONTH is giving me a 2 and I have a 2 for Feb in that field...
The E column are figures like 124 and 2 and 5 and the idea of the formula is:
Count all pages together from all cells iF printer in G column is like printer state in B cell and if nickname from D column is like nickname in A cell and if date in C column contains month 2.

Hello Nils, looks like you have some parentheses wrong in that version, is that a typo here or in your actual formula? try like this, using comma rather than * for last separator could avoid #VALUE! error......

...OK and comma in english should be ; in your version so that would be:

.If I have in the Data-Import nik. How I have to modify the formula so nik will be counted as NIK?

For NIK try:

For nik, try:
=SUMPRODUCT(('Data-LOWER(Import'!$G$2:$G$10000)=$B$2)=$A5)*(MONTh LOWER(('Data-Import'!$C$2:$C$10000)=C$4);Data-Import!$E$2:$E$10000)

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I sent you an email to your secondary address.

Hi, thanks for quick respond and help. Looks like it was simply wrong parentheses. All works fine now, no matter if NIK capitalized or not!
