If I have a list of amounts (with cost centers), is there a way for Excel to tell me if the listed amounts equal a determined total.

Here is a simple example.
Cost Center Amount
1 10
2 12
3 15
4 20

The total of the amounts is 57, but the total I am looking for is 45, so the item that I can delete is 12. Is there any way to have Excel help me with this? The data is from SAP, and I am unable to download only the data that I need, and do not know which cost centers should be ignored.

Thanks for your help.
