I have an excel file where the data is in the following format.

account ID, name of business, country (including empty cells where country info is missing), monthly revenue, url of the account.

I need to find the total monthly revenue for all the accounts in each country. There are about 100 countries there and more than 6000 accounts and so it is not easy or quick to do it manually.

How do I do this?

I am using a MAC by the way. I would also like to be able to do this in Google docs / spreadsheet.

Do a PivotTable - that's the quickest way.

You can create a PivotTable in Google spreadsheet as well.

Country in the rows.
Month (which you presumably have, because otherwise "monthly revenue" would not make sense) in the columns.
Sum of Monthly revenue as the values.

We don't have month as a field. These are people who are paying for a monthly subscription for SAAS product. So, we just have CMRR (monthly revenue).

OK, so Country in the rows, Sum of Monthly revenue as the values then.

Thanks.

I would also like to know how to do this using another method (maybe use a formula).

In Excel, you can use Data - Remove Duplicates to generate the list, and then a SUMIF to generate the financial results.

As usual there are many ways. You could also use the Subtotal function to insert rows with subtotal sums when the data criteria specified changes, assumes data is sorted by the specified criteria.

Thanks
