Hello,

I am trying to perform a lookup where I want to find the reference in column A and total the amounts in columns B or C. As you will see in my attached sample, I have a list of utilities in column A. In column B I have the cost and in Column C I have the amount paid.

In Column E I want to get the total cost for Electric and in Column F I want the total paid.

How do I find and total up all occurrences of Electric.

Thanks,

John

That would be the function dsum and not vlookup

you can just use SUMIF... see attachment 1.

or you can use SUMIFS on normalised data... see attachment 2.

Try:

=SUMIFS(B$2:B$9,$A$2:$A$9,$E$1)

copied to next column

Hello Barman,

Thanks! One last question,  what if I wanted to include a date and look for all Utilities within a date range? For example I want a total of all bills from 01/01/2013 through 01/31/2013. Would that sill be a SUMIF?

Thanks,

John
