"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

One way you can do it is by using Sumproduct. This is what the formula looks like in H7:

=SUMPRODUCT(($B$7:$B15=VALUE(LEFT($F7,1)))*($C$7:$C15=TEXT(LEFT(H$6,5),"")),$D$7:$D15)

See attached.
