Extracting Values of Cells with Multiple Lines

Hello,
I am trying to determine how I can search cell contents for specific values (a calendar week value) and then extract the corresponding value entered on an adjacent cell that are the hours worked in that week for a given project.

I cannot import an image or screen shot, so I will try to explain a bit more. For example in A2 I have multiple lines separated by the ALT+ENTER key combo. There potentially could be ss many as 53 lines in that cell (of which there would be many rows based on various projects - each project gets a new excel row) because of the number of potential calendar weeks in a year.

Adjacent to that A2 cell (A1) are entries for the hours worked for each line in A2. I'd like to search the cells in a given column for a calendar week, let's say 34 and then "look" in the A1 cell for a number entry to extract into A3 for example. Maybe I can type out a "format" below:

A1 Contents: A2 Contents:

2 32
12 33
8 34

So I want to pull how many hours my guy worked in calendar week 33. I would like my formula to search all the cells in column A for "33" and then look in the adjacent cell, A1, for the value entered on the "same line." In this case I should get 12. And of course if there are multiple cells that have 33 in them I would have the total hours my guy worked on various projects for CW33.

I hope I explained this well and any help is appreciated.

Best Regards,
Jeff
