Here is my existing formula/lookup that works well.

=SUMIFS('all deals'!J:J,'all deals'!G:G,"Commit",'all deals'!M:M,"Civilian") + SUMIFS('all deals'!J:J,'all deals'!G:G,"Upside",'all deals'!M:M,"Civilian")

I also need to include from "all deals" when column M="Civilian" and column D includes somewhere in the string the word "forecast"

You can simplify your current formula to a single SUMIFS like this:

=SUM(SUMIFS('all deals'!J:J,'all deals'!G:G,{"Commit","Upside"},'all deals'!M:M,"Civilian"))

Now you say you need to include when column M = "Civilian"......but that's already included so to add "Forecast" anywhere in column D just add a condition with wildcards like this:

=SUM(SUMIFS('all deals'!J:J,'all deals'!G:G,{"Commit","Upside"},'all deals'!M:M,"Civilian",'all deals'!D:D,"*Forecast*"))

Barry is this what you had in mind?

=SUMIFS('all deals'!J:J,'all deals'!G:G,{"Commit","Upside"},'all deals'!M:M,"Civilian") + SUMIFS('all deals'!J:J,'all deals'!D:D,"*Forecast*",'all deals'!M:M,"Civilian")

Hello pinkstonmp

Can you restate the requirement?

You said


I also need to include from "all deals" when column M="Civilian" and column D includes somewhere in the string the word "forecast"

....but the "Civilian" requirement is already included, is it not? So I assumed that you want the current conditions but with an added condition for column D - the formula I posted is meant to do that - did it work for you?
