I have an XLS with two tabs

Report
Chart

Report is the raw report and chart is where I want to summarize values, if I get one I should be fine to do the rest...
 
so in cell C3 of chart I would like the total number of records from Report when:
Report Column L = Civilian
Report Column N begins with 01,02 or 03

in cell C11 of chart I would like the sum of Report Column G when:
Report Column L = Civilian
Report Column N begins with 06

Perhaps two pivottables would do the trick? Easier than formulas.

You should be able to get the count with the COUNTIFS function, for example for 01, 02 and 03:

=COUNTIFS(Report!L:L,"Civillian",Report!N:N,"01*")+COUNTIFS(Report!L:L,"Civillian",Report!N:N,"02*")+COUNTIFS(Report!L:L,"Civillian",Report!N:N,"03*")

Likewise, you can use the SUMIFS function to sum up:

=SUMIFS(Report!G:G,Report!L:L,"Civilian",Report!N:N,"06*")
