How can I show a summary of part number and the shipped amounts as a summary in Excel?

Here is a sample of the source data in Excel.

PROD CODE      SHIP QTY
00001                        0.00
00001                        90.00
00001                        0.00
00002                        0.00
00003                        0.00
00003                        5.00
00003                        -5.00
00004                        0.00
00005                        0.00
00006                       58.00
etc...

I would like a macro or script which would open the Excel file, and show only the Total Shipped by Product.
Where there is a negative, is that should be deducted from the total amount for that particular Product.

The desired output would be something like this:

PROD CODE      SHIP QTY
00001                        90.00
00002                        90.00
00003                        0.00
00004                        0.00
00005                        0.00
00006                       58.00
etc...

PivotTables!

Almost anytime you think "summarize", PivotTables are the solution.  

Just click any cell in your data, then select Menu: Insert tab, Tables section, PivotTable.  You'll see a dialog box and your entire data section will be selected (you'll see a marquee around it).  Click the "OK" button.

In your example, you'll then make "PROD CODE" a Row Label (click and drag it from the "Choose fields to add to report" to the "Row Labels" section.  Then make "SHIP QTY" a Value (click and drag it to the "Values" section).

See the example workbook with some additional data.

A PivotTable is definitely the best way to do this.  But don't just take Glenn's and my word for it:

Thanks however in my list it's not calculating correctly at all.
The Sum of the Ship Qty is no where that it should be close to.
Something is not working correctly.

I changed the summary to Sum instead of Count and it seems to work fine.
