ctzri 1/4/05 0.100
ctzri 1/4/05 0.317
ctzri 1/5/05 0.033
ctzri 1/5/05 0.250
ctzri 1/5/05 0.267
ctzri 1/6/05 0.050
I am attempting to sort this data by bank and by date then sum the data. I will then export the data to another sheet and display the sum of minutes for each bank for each day. for example the sum for ctzri on 1/4/05 will be displayed on a seperate sheet as .616 minutes. how can I accomplish this?

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

Hi Tman

A pivot table is a good suggestion. I was working on this prior to that post, how about something like the following:
Book4
ABC
1bisysCriteria
2BankDateTimeSpent
3bisys
4
5ctzriCriteria
6BankDateTimeSpent
7ctzri01/04/2005
8
9Database
10BankDateTimeSpent
11bisys01/04/20050.033
12ctzri01/04/20050.033
13ctzri01/04/20050.083
14ctzri01/04/20050.083
15ctzri01/04/20050.1
16ctzri01/04/20050.317
17ctzri01/05/20050.033
18ctzri01/05/20050.25
19ctzri01/05/20050.267

Hi Tman,

I'm glad it helped, I've always got amazing responces from this board.

In addition, I wasn't sure how familiar you are with excel. It would be wiser to add Named ranges to specific areas of your spreadsheet.

Select A2:C3 Click Insert>Name>Define and assign a name to that range Click Add, choose OK i.e: BisysCriteria

Select A6:C7 Click Insert>Name>Define and assign a name to that range Click Add, choose OK i.e: CtzriCriteria

Select A10:C20 Click Insert>Name>Define and assign a name to that range Click Add, choose OK i.e: Database

In doing so, you can use the named range name rather then selecting the cells needed.

the formula in B25 =DSUM(A10:C20,C10,A6:C7)
would now read =DSUM(Database,C10,BisysCriteria)

Just a thought.
