COUNTIF with WIldcards
I have a survey sheet where all columns start with specifc chars: D-, I-, O-. Each contains differing descriptions following the "-". I want to create a sum of all "D-", "I-", etc. disregarding the descriptive text following the "-". I am using COUNTIF([Column1]:[Column X],="D-*") with no luck. Always returns "0" unless I specifically add ALL the text. This same function works fine in Excel counting all columns with "D- . . . ."
