I need a macro that would do the following:
Look in column A and make list of all "Products" listing just the first "Serial" number.
Then sum all three "TYPE"...MX, SX and HX.

I have attached a file to better explain.

You can do it with pivot table (just hide some columns and First Serial Number is minimum)

You can use COUNTIFS for those results. The formula in G2 would be:

=COUNTIFS(A:A,$E2,C:C,G$1)

A pivot table will not work for what I doing. The worksheet will change daily and this is only one part of a bigger process I am putting together.

Hi Flyster,
But what about this part...making list of all "Products" listing just the first "Serial" number?

Took a little time for this one. For the List, you can use this formula:

=INDEX($B$2:$B$38, MATCH(0, COUNTIF($F$1:F1, $B$2:$B$38), 0))

To list the first serial number, I added a column which counts the number of occurrences of each product. You can hide it.  Then for serial number you use this:

=SUMPRODUCT((B2:B38=$F2)*(A2:A38=1)*(C2:C38))
