Multi-column running summary formula

I need an Excel formula that allows me to calculate If Product = S AND Active = 1 THEN Total = Total + Cost, given this spreadsheet:

        A          B          C        D
1  Product  Active   Cost
2         S            1        12
3         B           0        14
4         S            1        13

The result should be Total = 15 (12 +13 from Rows 2 and 4)

I know I can do this if I create an additional Total column for the row and then sum it up. However, I'd rather not have to create additional columns on this spreadsheet to do so.

Thanks.

Oops, yes. 25. Long day. Thank you. I did have to replace the semicolon before the "= with a comma. This worked!

yes,... semicolon, comma,.... it depends on the local settings, what the delimiter is (mine is a bit unusual as a semicolon.... comma is used as a decimal delimiter here)

I'm glad I could help
