Good Afternoon

I am looking to do a find and replace on the following sum:

=(SUMPRODUCT((Centre=C$4)*(TEXT(Date,"mmmm yyyy")="JANUARY 2011")*(Group=$A5)*(Value>0)*(Value)))

Replace *(Value)
For ,Value)

When I do the find and repalce I am left with ,Value) as the value in the cells?

Many thanks

If you want to replace an actaul * you need to precede with a tilde symbol ~ so that Excel knows you are not using * as a wildcard, so use this in "Find what"

~*(Value)
