subtotal is not adding numbers (using sum) by name of practice. it just outputs 0s.

please let me know how you do it!

Try using SUMIF. That is what I use to sum by a number or name. Works fine.

No obvious answer from your limited information.  It would be very helpful if you could post the spreadsheet with a comment about where the subtotal isn't working.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Use SUMIF using column C to match on and column E to for the data if that is what you mean.

You might consider enumerating the names in another column as using SUMIF with numbers is more compact than names.

You need a formula like this.

=SUMIF(L$63:L$92,V68,I$63:I$92)

Where L is the index; V is the match cell, and I is the selection to be matched.

Try this in your spreadsheet and it will work.

If you need someone to write a spreadsheet for you, set up a GIG for it.

The "values" you subtotal are text, not numbers, so subtotal results are 0.
See attached file where values are changed to numbers.
