i would like to have  a formula that will perform a sumproduct if the header has  like tom

IF(($O$4:$V$4 "<>*tom*"),

then perform the sumproduct function
SUMPRODUCT(--SUBSTITUTE(TEXT($O$8:$V$8,"0.00"),".",":")))


then a similar function IF(($O$4:$V$4 "*tom*"),

then perform the sumproduct function
SUMPRODUCT(--SUBSTITUTE(TEXT($O$8:$V$8,"0.00"),".",":")))

thanks

Please describe the function in English without the formulas.

sum the range $O$8:$V$8 if  $O$4:$V$4  not like tom

but it will have to substitute  the "." with ":" in the range  $O$8:$V$8

which it the  SUBSTITUTE(TEXT($O$8:$V$8,"0.00"),".",":") part of the sumproduct
SUMPRODUCT(--SUBSTITUTE(TEXT($O$8:$V$8,"0.00"),".",":")))

or
 if  $O$4:$V$4   like tom

You have not distinguished a difference between cells that are like tom and cells that are not. In each case you are summing cells $O$8:$V$8.

it  varies so we look in range $O$4:$V$4   to find any cell that has a value like "tom" ,then sum the matching  cells $O$8:$V$8  after converting the values $O$8:$V$8  to timevalues

Perhaps this.

If row 4 contains "tom":

=SUMPRODUCT((NOT(ISERROR(SEARCH("*tom*",O4:V4))))*SUBSTITUTE(O8:V8,".",":"))

If row 4 does not contain "tom":

=SUMPRODUCT((ISERROR(SEARCH("*tom*",O4:V4)))*SUBSTITUTE(O8:V8,".",":"))

What I provided above is a solution for this request:

Provide a formula to sum the values in O8:V8 if the value in the same column in row 4 contains "tom", and a second formula to do the same if the value in row for does not contain "tom". The values are times but with periods versus colons.

Do the numbers in O8:V8 include only two digits after the decimal point? If so, you could use:
=SUMIF(O4:V4,"*tom*",O8:V8)/14.4

If there might be 3 or more digits after the decimal point--and you want to round two digits--then consider:
=SUMPRODUCT(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("tom",O4:V4))*SUBSTITUTE(TEXT(O8:V8,"0.00"),".",":"))

Note that Kevin's suggestion will return an error value if one of the cells in O8:V8 is blank.

If O8:V8 contain only numbers like 0.23, then my two suggestions will give the same answer. If there is a number like 1.23, then I suspect the SUMIF will give what you might consider a wrong answer.

The fix for Kevin's formula with the blank cell problem is to add 0 to O8:V8
=SUMPRODUCT((NOT(ISERROR(SEARCH("tom",O4:V4))))*SUBSTITUTE(O8:V8+0,".",":"))
Note that if O8:V8 contain more than two digits after the decimal point, this formula will give a different answer than the one using TEXT.

byundt your formula =SUMPRODUCT(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("tom",O4:V4))*SUBSTITUTE(TEXT(O8:V8,"0.00"),".",":")) is the right on point for the header that has tom

for the header that does not includes tom nothing return the accurate number. thanks

To add up the corresponding cells when O4:V4 does not include "tom", you might use:
=SUMPRODUCT(ISERR(SEARCH("tom",O4:V4))*SUBSTITUTE(TEXT(O8:V8,"0.00"),".",":"))

Svgmassive,
Could you please post a workbook showing some sample data and the expected result?

Depending on what your data looks like, there could be a simpler formula. I am particularly interested in knowing how many digits you have to the left and right of the decimal point, and whether there might be blank cells.

=SUMPRODUCT(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("tom",O4:V4))*SUBSTITUTE(TEXT(O8:V8,"0.00"),".",":"))

=SUMPRODUCT(ISERR(SEARCH("tom",O4:V4))*SUBSTITUTE(TEXT(O8:V8,"0.00"),".",":"))

These formulas did the trick the last one thanks a  million byundt
