Excel 2010 - summing column based on MATCH result

I have a workbook containing a data sheet of several thousand rows and 100+ columns, and a summary sheet.

What I am trying to do is use the MATCH function on the summary sheet to locate the specific column title on the data sheet, and once found sum the data that corresponds to the specific column.

Is Match the correct function to use?  If so, how would I create the sum once the column is found.
A simplistic example is attached.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In C2..You can simply use the formula...

=SUMPRODUCT((Data!$B$1:$D$1=Table!A2)*(Data!$B$2:$D$6))
