How do I add a cell to sum up the value that I select in a filter?

I have a list locations and $ amounts. Each location has its own dollar amount. The column headers for this data has the drop down filter turned on.  I want to add to my spread sheet a cell that sums the dollar values for the location that I select in from my filter.  If I select from my filter Albany I want the summary cell to only total Albany $ amounts. If I change to a new location the sum should change accordingly.

SUM: $926,000

Location      Amount            
Albany      $340,000
Albany      $123,000
Rensselaer  $456,234
Rensselaer $156,000
Saratoga      $340,000
Saratoga      $123,000
Albany      $340,000
Albany      $123,000
Rensselaer $456,234
Rensselaer $156,000

I know I can do this with a Piviot table  or insort subtotals into the data. My question is specific to summing data for a selected filter.

Thanks for your assistance

Try SUBTOTAL.

=SUBTOTAL(9,B3:B12)

Where B3:B12 is the range with the dollar amounts.

Can you please tell me what the "9" is in the formula  =Subtotal(9,B3:B12)

Other than that the fornula works great.

Thanks
