Is there an easy way to sum a vlookup search in one formula?

I have a dataset where column A is a list of tasks, column B is a list of names, columns C to N are represent Jan to Dec, and the data within columns B to N represents the number of days that the person in column B spent on the task in column A. The people (in cloumn B) can work on more than one task (column A).

I want to create a summary totalling each person's total, per month, so am trying to create a formula that looks for all instances of [name 1] in column B, and then sums all appropriate values in column C...

...but I'm stuck!

Any help would be very very useful indeed!

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

Something like this...

Let's assume your data is on Sheet2 in the range A2:C100.

On your summary sheet...

A2 = some name

=SUMIF(Sheet2!B$2:B$100,A2,Sheet2!C2:C100)
