Hi,
I paste an excel 97 report sheet into sheet1 of an excel 2010 workbook.
In sheet2 I have a list of part numbers in column A and a SUMIF formula in column B.
I have been trying for a while now to get the formula to give a result, but failing miserably.
I have looked at the help in Excel and on here, and the formula looks ok to me, but I'm obviously missing something.
I have attached the workbook in question,
As always, your help is appreciated.
Thanks
