I'm looking for something that's very difficult to search for.

I balance my checkbook in excel. Each row has a spot for Date/Comments/Withdrawl/Deposit/Balance.

I'd like to search for a value in the comments (eg. daycare) and if that word exists, take the value from the Withdrawl cell and add it.

The idea is, for similar items I'll keep a running total.

Edit:
A1 = Date
B1 = Comments
C1 = Withdrawl
D1 = Deposit
E1 = Balance

adam73647, Good evening.

Try to do:

G2 --> DAYCARE

H2 --> =SUMIF(B2:B100, "*" & G2 & "*", C2:C100)

Adapt ranges to your reality.

Is that what you want?
I hope it helps.
