You could use a regular expression for the criterium. You will have to enable regular expressions
in formulas.
=SUMIF(B5:B10;"1234|2345|6789";A5:A10)
Look in the Calc Guide.
Thank you all. It worked. By the way Regular Expression is on by
default, as I would not have touched it as I didn't know what effect it
would have. Your responses open up more possibilities!
