Create a Pivot Table on the source data and have all columns populate into the pivot table with Order as a row header by which to sum. Choose option in Pivot Design tab ? Report layout > Repeat all Item labels.

Copy Pivot and Paste Values to break link to source data.

Re-arrange to put Order column back where required.

Delete Original Data.

Thanks

If you leave the pivot with links to the source data and copy/paste elsewhere each time, you can then just update source with new data, refresh pivot, copy elsewhere again.

The pivot data range can be dynamic for when the size of the data changes.

Thanks
