SUMIFS, COUNTIFS – ignore criteria

Sumifs and Countifs are used to sum or count using multiple criteria. Recently while making a report i was using multiple drop down menu linked to the criteria field of formula, to give user the flexibility of having a dynamic report. As one of the option I wanted to ignore the criteria and select all the options that were there in the criteria range. After a bit of struggle i found that using wild card “*” (asterik) can be used in drop down menu as it ignore the criteria and select all the options.
