    Default Complicated Sum Formula

    Hi there,
    I have a list of tasks in column A for a number of months and in B the count of people doing these tasks. In column I - I have a listed these tasks while removing duplicates.
    I want to put a formula into column J where the it sums the value in column B based of the task in I.

    Any ideas welcomed.

    I have tried - =IF($I1=A1,SUM(B:B),"") but this only returns the total value of all users for one specific task...

    Thanks in advance

    How about
    =sumif(A:A,I2,B:B)
