Thats easy with SUMIF function:

=SUMIF(A1:A5,"Y",B1:B5)

This says look at range A1:A5 and where it finds "Y", include the relevant row from B1:B5.

if you find that you will need more than one criteria, there is also SUMIFS function which allows multiple criteria but would cover that separately if you so required.

Thanks

In your sample above, the result of SUM(B1:B5) will be the same as the SUMIF because the row without the Y has zero anyway.

I agree, although I often cannot see so good...

=SUMIF(A1:A4,"Y",B1:B4)
or
=SUMPRODUCT(1*($A$2:$A$5="Y")*($B$2:$B$5))
