How sum numbers in 2 columns where the values in column A are the same

SteveL13 asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-05
In my Excel file I have 4 columns.  In column "A" I have a text field.  The values in this text field may repeat 1 or more times in the rows but the file is sorted by this row so they are all together.   Then, in a 5th column I want to sum the numeric values of the data in column "C" where the text string is the same in column A.  Then I also want to do this in yet another new column, summing the values in column D where the text string is the same in column A.

Please see my sample file to see what I'm trying to do.
