I have a log book for materials used in my Woodworking class. I give the students the 1st sheet of 3/4"ply wood, 1/4" Plywood and 3/4" Particle board, and Melamine. free. Other pieces they have to pay for. I need some thing that looks for the 1st entry with the each name and delete the number from the total column. The Names are provided in a drop down menu so they will all be spelled the same. The student may enter several pieces of each sizes any any order so I can not just not total the 1st 4 items.


Thanks
 

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Or that would delete the formula in a cell, rather than the total column
