Excel 2010 - summing column based on MATCH result

uad asked
Last Modified: 2015-10-29
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.
