Hello,

This is probably easy, but I'm stuck. Below is a simplified version of the data. When I encounter a blank line in column A I want to skip a line and then sum the costs in column B. Columns A and B will have different sets of data every time and the lengths will change so the range is variable. Thanks

<TABLE style="WIDTH: 122pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=163><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 66pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 3218" width=88><COL style="WIDTH: 56pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 2742" width=75><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 15pt" height=20><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 66pt; HEIGHT: 15pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl69 height=20 width=88>A</TD><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 56pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl69 width=75>B</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 15pt" height=20><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; HEIGHT: 15pt; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl67 height=20>Supplier #</TD><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8" class=xl68>P.O.

I forgot to mention that I was looking for a macro to perform the logic described in the previous post.
