I have a table as below and want to use the sumif function to sum the percentages if the category in the left column starts with "LOCAL".

I have tried among others
=SUMIF($A$8:$A$15,"""LEFT(A8,5)="&"""LOCAL"""&"""",$B$8:$B$15)
but I can't make it work.

Anyone can?

Thanks, I have clean forgotten about array formulas. I had to go read up on them.
