In excel we have two instances of names in a column. I need each name to give me a SUM calculation and an alert.
I will give you an example:
Name    Qty   Cell

Test 1    5      A3
Test1     5      A4
Test2     4      A5
Test2     3      A6
 I would like the SUM of A3:A4 and  A5:A6. When either name, Test 1 or Test 2, reaches 10 first i will get a alert at cell H3.
Can you help me with this. If you need further information let me know.

select cell H3 and then goto: "Format->Conditional Formatting". You will see the example/formula.

Good luck
