How do I sum based on a condition?

If B2 is equal to 21, then I want to sum(a1:a21). If B2 is equal to 43, then I want to sum(a1:a43). If B2 is qual to 67, then sum(a1:a67). And so on...

It seems so simple. I figure I am overlooking something obvious but don't know what. I would appreciate any input.

the ever useful INDIRECT() could be used:

=SUM(INDIRECT("A1:A"&B2))

there are probably lots of other good ways I haven't thought of, but that will work :wink:
