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.

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.
