So if the column A is the Month, column B is Revenue and column C is Customers, try this...


Open in new window

The above formula will get you the total revenue for the month 1 and for all the customers except the customer c.

What do use as a separator in the formulas, a comma or a semicolon?
If you use a semicolon, replace all the commas with a semicolon.
Btw I have logged off and on mobile now.

Select all and use (PIVOT table) under insert tab.

Put  Month and Customer under Filters

Put Sum of Months Under values.
