Will this match any text in D1 to D14 that ends with the word "Landline"?

I think you want:
(note the extra . before the *)

In regular expressions, "." matches any character, while "*" matches any
number (including 0) of the previous expression. So "x*" would match any
number of "x"s, while ".*" would match any number of any character.
LibreOffice's help contains information on other regular expression
syntax supported.

You also need to enable the option:
   Tools > Options > LibreOffice Calc > Calculate > Enable regular
expressions in formulae
(otherwise SUMIF will look for the literal string ".*Landline$")


Hmm, this looks good, i did not know of the regular expression setting....

But if you do not want MyLandline in the result, you should also add a space ;)

".* Landline$"
