I need a formula to sum the values in a range of cells but only for the cells that have a specific text in a completely different range of cells.

For example,

sum the values for H8:I12
but only if the text in C8:C12 EQUALS "CRM"

I have 5 different text values in order of importance:
Any help would be of great appreciation

your information is not complete
I assume the five text strings are in H8 to H12
and in I6 to I12 there are some numbers

now use this formula

This is ana rray formula so INVOKE THIS FORMULA BY HITTING

Thank you very much!

You know I was sure I tried that. Must have made a dumb error in the formula somewhere. It was 4am my time.
I know... excuses, excuses. Knew it was an easy one. Thanks again, much appreciated.
The suggestion above didn't work for me either. Ideally all of the items you add should be in a single column (not H and I) but if you keep things as is try the following:
=sum(vlookup("CRM",C8:i12,5, false),vlookup("CRM",C8:i12,6, false))
