I need to total data when certain cells match...let me explain:

A      B     C
160      3      01100040100310
686      25      01100040100315
200      1      01100040102110
569      19      01200010100105
160      5      01100040100310
686      25      01100040100315
200      1      01100040102110
569      19      01200010100105
160      2      01100040100310
686      25      01100040100315
200      1      01100040102110
569      19      01200010100105


These are my 3 columns.

Everywhere the value in column C exists I need to cumulatively add the value in column B

For example....I would want to know that 01100040100310 had a total value of 10.

Is there a formula to do this?  I used a pivot table to get close but then I need to sort by the total in whatever new sheet I create.

In this example:
A = price
B = count
C = productID

I created a simple pivot that just counts the unique occurrences of column C and added a custom sort option to how the table displays.

In the Pivot Table, select the row's dropdown options and choose "More sort options"

Then, select Ascending or Descending on the total count field:

Does this help?

You could use the subtotal feature, without creating pivot tables.
Also a SUMIF or SUMIFs formula would work if you had the list of unique identifiers somewhere on the sheet.
Can you post a sample of your data in Excel and where you'd like the results to be?
