Both Aladin, Sen-dp and andreas had helped me to solve a problem but on looking deeper a problem has arisen when the number of columns is large and the numbers of non blank cells is quite large. I start to get #VALUE problems. Has anybody any thoughts

I don't think there are any mind readers on this forum, so it might be better if you describe the problem.

I have a set of data of around 100 rows with column headings in row 1. The column headings may be the same eg a, b, c, a, a , c. In the cells below each column header there are many blan cells and some numbers, randomly distributed. At the extreme right I have a column which sums the numbers in each row. I need a formula which sums those row totals in the right hand column whose rows contain one or more nonblank cells with a column header of 'a'.
I hope i have explained that prperly . I would appreciate any help
I had recieved two solutions, one involving SUMPRODUCT and the other using HLOOKUP. Both did exactly what I wanted except if there was a sizeable number of entries in a row #VALUE problems occured. If you search for the only other Belfast post you can find it. I should have kept that post going but having thanked everyone I thought that one was a dead duck.
Please help
