Change in Excel sum required

Posted on 2011-10-13

In the attached spreadsheet is a worksheet named 'Analyse' and in here is some sums.  I need to build into the sum a filter so that I can get more specific results.

In the worksheet named 'Master Sheet' column 'G' are some product codes and I would like to build into the sum the ability to be able to filter results by the start of a product code so that I can see specific results filtered by code.  I don;t want it to search by the whole code though so as an example I have two codes PJ5055DYEC & PJ5055DYEB, rather than the whole code I want to filter by PJ5055DYE as then I get the results for every code starting with these digits.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hello Simonrepro,

if you put the code (e.g. PJ5055DYE) in A1 on Analyse sheet then you can change B2 to this formula copied across and down

=SUMPRODUCT(--('Master Sheet'!$J$2:$J$385=$A2),--(TEXT('Master Sheet'!$F$2:$F$385,"mmm-yy")=TEXT(B$1,"mmm-yy")),--(LEFT('Master Sheet'!$G$2:$G$385,LEN($A$1))=$A$1),'Master Sheet'!$H$2:$H$385)

see attached

regards, barry
