Hi,

I am trying to use the RIGHT function with SUMIFS but I am not having much success.

I have entered the formula
=SUMIFS(D2:D100, E2:E100, "=3", RIGHT(C2:C100, 13),"=recd from XYZ")
but I get an message that says the formula contains an error.  Can you please advise what I should do to correct the error?

Many thanks in advance
Alison
