wildcards in sumproduct functions
Thanks for your help but I think I have my answer... sumproduct does not
support wildcards. I'll use a specific text reference or cell reference
You would need to use something like this:
=SUMPRODUCT(--(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("ABC",A1:A10))), other conditions...)
i.e. you are looking to see if ABC is contained within any of the
cells in the range A1 to A10. You can use FIND instead of SEARCH if
the case of the text string is important.
Hope this helps.

I would prefer to use a wildcard for text criteria in sumproduct counting and
adding equations. I have tried versions of "*ABC*" and get false values.
