VBA : Aggregating Excel cells whose rows contain certain text

In VBA, I want to write a Macro that aggregates the values of a column depending on the text values of another column.
For eaxmple, I have data like this:

Name   Salary
RON         5
TOM         6
JO            4
RON          3
RON         2
JO           10

I want to write something in VBA where I take this date and run a macro to generate:

Name      Salary
RON       10
TOM        6
JO           14

In reality, the raw file contains about 800 lines of data and the cells will not always be in the same place.

Any ideas?

Assuming data is in the first 2 columns, and that the result should go to the third and fourth column :

Public Sub Salary()
  Dim aNames(1 To 100) As String
  Dim aSalary(1 To 100) As Integer
  Dim iNext  As Integer
  Dim bFound As Boolean
  iNext = 1
  For iRow = 1 To 800
    sName = ActiveSheet.Cells(iRow, 1)
    If sName = "" Then Exit For
    iSalary = ActiveSheet.Cells(iRow, 2)
    bFound = False
    For iLoop = 1 To iNext
      If aNames(iLoop) = sName Then
        aSalary(iLoop) = aSalary(iLoop) + iSalary
        bFound = True
        Exit For
      End If
    Next iLoop
    If Not bFound Then
      aNames(iNext) = sName
      aSalary(iNext) = iSalary
      iNext = iNext + 1
    End If
  Next iRow
  For iRow = 1 To iNext - 1
    ActiveSheet.Cells(iRow, 3) = aNames(iRow)
    ActiveSheet.Cells(iRow, 4) = aSalary(iRow)
  Next iRow
End Sub

This might be easier:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUMIF(R[-8]C[1]:R[-2]C[1],""Ron."",R[-8]C:R[-2]C)"
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUMIF(R[-8]C[1]:R[-2]C[1],""Tom."",R[-8]C:R[-2]C)"
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUMIF(R[-8]C[1]:R[-2]C[1],""Jo."",R[-8]C:R[-2]C)"

You just have to set the variables for the rows and columns, but that's easy!
