Excel Database Functions Don't Work

I have two excel sheets with database functions in them. Both sheets are the same except that one has been formatted as a table. The data was ordered and then table formatting was removed.

Data was then subtotaled. Now the database functions which are located starting at row 99 no longer work. Specifically the box containing the "Salesperson" data.

For example the "Count of Sales" should show that "Collins" has 5 sales with "Average Billed" of $3,671.40 and "Sum of Sales of " $18,357.00

What is happening is that the database functions in the first "Database Functions" box starting at row 99 is counting the Totals "Collins Total" and the total sales of 18,357 as a separate "Collins" sales including the total sales as another sale.

Of the two excel sheets:

146jrc.xls : The top part of this sheet functions as I want it to in the listing totals information. The bottom "Database Functions" is incorrectly counting info in the totals sections.

146_05Data.xls : This is an earlier version of the above sheet.  The bottom "Database Functions" work as intended but I need them to work on the top sheet without counting the "totals sections".

The PDF file contains instructions on how sheet is to work.

This is because the criteria are not Exact, so they are selecting both Collins and Collins Total.

To make it exact, change A108 from:

Collins

To

="=Collins"

Thank you I am new to this and was not aware of that. So the sheet is correct but my search criteria was in error.
