    Default Multiple matches in a column - need to sum up their matches.

    So in my example, in column A, I would like to look up the letter "B", and then look under the month of January, and sum up the number of "B"'s that is returned under that column. I just want the one row for the sum of B's. I dont want to have multiple cells that I still have to solve for, and I dont want to hide cells. Under the Cell for B, I might want to look up the Number of any letter in a particular month.

    Does that make sense?

    Thanks

    Lawrence

    Is this what you mean?
    If not, please provide & explain the expected results for the sample data given.

    BTW, You will get many more potential helpers if you post a small (copyable) screen shot or two directly in your post, rather than an image where the data cannot be pasted into Excel in a meaningful way. My signature block below has help regarding that.

    Formula in B10 is copied across and down.

    SUMIF

    ABC
    1 JanFeb
    2B60
    3A53
    4B34
    5C24
    6D310
    7B55
    8
    9
    10B149
    11C24

    Spreadsheet Formulas
    CellFormula
    B10=SUMIF($A$2:$A$7,$A10,B$2:B$7)

    Hope this helps, good luck.
