Tricky Pivot Table Analysis

Hi everyone! First time poster here after attempting to tackle my issue over several days.

I've included a range of sample data below to help understand what I am trying to achieve.

  • I have a list of case numbers (column A) which are duplicated because individuals log separate instances of time to those cases (columns F - I).
  • I need my information organized by month which I will use the Date/Time Opened (column C)
  • This is where it gets tricky:
    • If for the month of December 2020, a person's name appears in the Assigned To field, I need to count the distinct number of case numbers for which they will get credit for working on so I can see the total number of cases worked in a month
    • I also need to count the # of minutes from column G for only the time that was created by a specific individual and calculate the total time, independent of whether they were the Assigned To individual or not.
  • For example, in the sample data set, Bonnie was assigned to 2 cases, so 2 would be the total.
    • However, Bonnie has case time on other cases she wasn't the Assigned To person, which would need to add to her total of Time Spent (Min) which for this data set equals 75.
Is there a different way to filter to capture what I am looking for? Filtering Bonnie on Assigned To excludes all of her other case time spent on other cases.

No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.
