# Sumproduct With Text String

Aug 4, 2008I have trying to write a sumproduct formula, however, the total sum amount that i get is "0", which i think the formula is not picking up the text.

=SUMPRODUCT(($Y$2:$Y$65536="Evaporative cooler*")*($Q$2:$Q$65536=$AM$5)*($N$2:$N$65536=6),($AA$2:$AA$65536))

Y column is the text column to find the Evaporative cooler, the Q is another column where i have write the text out at AM5, N is a number field. The only bracket that is not working is the Y. Can you please let me know if I did anything wrong to it?

There are 3 types of Evaporative cooler, 1) Evaporative cooler - phoenix, 2) Evaporative cooler - Cal, 3) Evaporative cooler - Brisa. I wondered if I can use "*" to select all of the Evaporative cooler, instead of listing all three.
