I have 1700 rows with associates id's and points given for specific attendance infractions.
On a seperate tab, I would like to list all associates and have a formula refer back to the original tab ( vlookup Employee Id in column A) and sum the total points given to that associates on the lists.

For example :
1234 - John Smith may be listed 5 times throughout the list with different point values in colomn C.
The desired result is that from Tab2 - a formula ( or something ) will look on Tab1 for 1234 in column A and sum the total of points given to that associate from Column C.
Usually vlookup will find the first record and not continue to move down the list.

Lock one reference in a formula
Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

Have a look at the SUMIF function. Another option: Select the data area and activate Insert | Pivot Table.
