# Sum matching rows to another sheet

Hello Experts,

Here is what I have
SHEET 1
``````Name	ID	Pay
Mark	101	10
Phil	102	8
Dave	103	4
Mark	101	19
Dawn	104	4
Bob	105	60
Mark	101	7
Les	106	22
Dawn	104	31
Phil	102	40
Dave	103	11
Al	107	3
Les	106	12
``````

I also have this in another sheet
SHEET 2
``````Name	ID     Pay
Mark	101
Phil	102
Dave	103
Dawn	104
Bob	105
Les	106
Al	107
``````

What I would like to do is fill in the Pay on SHEET 2 with the SUM of all the matching rows on SHEET1.  I assume a VLOOKUP on the ID would be best.
This is what SHEET2 will look like:
``````Name	ID	Pay
Mark	101	36
Phil	102	48
Dave	103	15
Dawn	104	35
Bob	105	60
Les	106	34
Al	107	3
``````

I would like to know the simple formula that does it AND if there is a VB that will do it too.  I will use the formula, but I am learning VB and would like to see that too if possible.

THANKS!!!!

This is the formula to put on the first row under Pay:

=SUMPRODUCT((Sheet1!\$A\$2:\$A\$14=Sheet2!A2)*(Sheet1!\$B\$2:\$B\$14=Sheet2!B2)*(Sheet1!\$C\$2:\$C\$14))

Then copy down the column.

Would SUMIF be sufficient, I assume the IDs are unique. In sheet 2 C2 copied down

=SUMIF(Sheet1!B:B,B2,Sheet1!C:C)

@fireman7147: did you at least took a look at my example?!? My formula works and gives the result that you wanted. I posted a working solution first and you accepted only the solution from barry?!

Commented:
With respect jppinto, why would you need SUMPRODUCT here, SUMIF is always preferable for a single condition? I note that fireman7147 asked for a "simple formula", and that's what I provided - the first solution posted isn't necessarily the best!

Barry, with all due respect, you can use SUMIF here but you can also use SUMPRODUCT and it works. There are many ways of doing this. These are only two. I still think that at least my answer should be accepted as an "assist" because it works and I posted a working solution first. Maybe it's not the best solution, but still is a solution!

I would like to ear the explanation from the author here also...

Your solution worked indeed, but only if I had exactly the amount of rows in the example. Barry's solution worked with unlimited rows, which will be the case.

Sorry if you feel slighted, but his solution appeared to be the simplest and the most versatile. Any slight to you was unintentional.

Thanks Mark

OK, thanks for your feedback. No hard feelings. Maybe next time I get it :)
