EXCEL 2010 FORMULA/MACRO HELP

Hi, would really appreciate if you can help with a rather complicated formula (at least it is for me!):
In the attached spreadsheet - Excel 2010:

Columns A:H contain the full list of hotels and booking details

Columns J and K contain a unique list of the hotels and their city (using Remove Duplicates)

Note:   because there may be many other rows later I have extended the full A:H range to 5000 rows in the specification below

Note:  I can write this as a pure FORMULA in cell L2 OR as a MACRO - (if it is a formula it will eventually be incorporated into a Macro)

I need:

Cell L2:  IF in the range A2:A5000=J2 AND in the range B2:B5000=K2  THEN   SUM the relevant cells in Column C

Using relative references in the formula above I will then be able to copy the formula down into the rest of the L column
and
I will also be able to adapt the formula to calculate the M, N, O and P columns

Many thanks

Gail

Hi Gail,

What do you mean by "SUM the relevant cells in Column C", exactly?

I assume you'll put something like this in L2, then copy it down:
    =IF(AND(A2=J2,B2=K2), what-to-do-if-true, what-to-do-if-false)
But the "what-to-do-if..." parts depend on your answer to my question above.

I'm deeply honoured, Gail.  Or at least shallowly.

Are you one of those paying members?  Looks as if you asked 5 questions in 2013.  What does that cost you?  Is it worth it?  I've often wondered.

Yes - I have been a paying member for several years (i.e. for as long as I have been creating Excel and Access models for my clients).  It costs me $99.50 and is worth every cent.

Where in the world are you (I'm in summery Sydney)

Hi G (now that we're on 1st initial terms),

I'm across the ditch in windy Wellington, but please don't hold that against me.

My Scottish ancestry won't permit me to pay a cent for such answers.  Instead I have to answer some questions (at least 3000 points worth) every couple of months, to pay my way.  That's 1.5 500 point questions, if I get an A grade.  Sometimes that takes me hours.
