excel formula need to add a NOT equal value

I have the following formula that works fine:
=SUMIFS(Report!H:H,Report!L:L,"Civilian",Report!N:N,"04*")+SUMIFS(Report!H:H,Report!L:L,"Civilian",Report!N:N,"05*")

But a new wrinkle popped in, I can't add values that have the word Commit in column D.  How would that impact the formula above?

Thanks

Use the criteria "<>*Commit*" like this
=SUMIFS(Report!H:H,Report!L:L,"Civilian",Report!N:N,"04*",Report!D:D,"<>*Commit*")+SUMIFS(Report!H:H,Report!L:L,"Civilian",Report!N:N,"05*",Report!D:D,"<>*Commit*")

You could use a formula like the following to return the number or 0 if it's not a number:
if(isnumber(yourcell),yourcell,0)

You can combine both SumIfs into one this way:
=Sum(SUMIFS(Report!H:H,Report!L:L,"Civilian",Report!N:N,{"04*","05*"},Report!D:D,"<>*Commit*"))
