Range - data where criteria is to be applied (B2:B4)
Criteria* - conditions required ("*n*")

*Criteria can be anything i.e. whole text or part of text.
In the example supra, I'v calculated Value of fruits based on condition that name of fruit shud contain "n".
I.e. any cobination of wild character can be used as criteria as follows:

  • "A*" - means text shud start with A.

  • "*e" - means text shud end with "e".

  • "*n?" - means text has second last letter as "n" and Last letter can be any character.
