Hi! I need to sum data in column D2:D1649 based on the information in column A1:A1649 that has the word "control". In other words, if column A has "control" then I need to have a total for all the numeric data in column D. Thanks!

Try this:

=SUMIF($A1:$A$1649,"*control*",$B$1:$B$1649)

How about this?

=IF(A1649="control",SUM(D2:D1649),"")

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

@Flyster - I could not get that formula to work either.  

@ladkisson - I've uploaded a sample that seems to work.

@Flyster - I thought I accepted your formula. I said that I had come up with the same answer. Did my acceptance not go through?

I was assuming that the cell contains exactly the word "control".

This will sum if the word control is found in cell A1649

=IF(FIND("control",A1649,1),SUM(D2:D1649),"")

@ Ladkisson,

There has been no acceptance on this question yet. I see others were having problems with my solution. Does it work for you?
