# Search For Multiple Entries - Combine and Sum

L

#### Ledge

Hi Folks, Hoping I could get some guidance with this:

I have 3 columns of data on sheet1.

Column A is numerical "APN"
Column B is text "Product Description"
Column C is numerical "Total"

Is there a way to search column A for multiple matching entries and if
so to sum the total while reducing back to one entry?

EG: SHEET CURRENTLY LOOKS LIKE THIS

APN Product Description Total
25454 AAA 2
32121 BBB 1
32654 CCC 2
25454 AAA 5

WOULD LIKE IT TO DO THIS

APN Product Description Total
25454 AAA 7
32121 BBB 1
32654 CCC 2

This one is beyond my skills and would appreciate any assistance.

Dean

a sumproduct function should do it
=sumproduct((a2:a22=25454)*(b2:b22="a")*c2:c22)

Dean,

=SUMPRODUCT(--(A2:A5=25454),--(C2:C5))

Or

=SUMPRODUCT(--(A2:A5=G2),--(C2:C5))

where G2=25454

So if you have a list of all APN and Descriptions in a TOTAL sheet and your
other multiple entry data on a DATA sheet then you could use this for each
APN in your TOTAL sheet and copy down.

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Data!A2:A100=Total!A2),--(Data!C2:100))

Change ranges to suit
