Assuming Column A has your strings to be searched and Column B has your numbers to be summed (just change the ranges as required; you can specify a larger range than your current data set if you will adding new data in the future)... =SUMIF(A1:A1000,"Some string value",B1:B1000) -- Rick (MVP - Excel) "BG Mark" wrote in message news:767C1228-9339-46AA-8CDD-CD7A48489BB4(a)microsoft.com...> How can I use the Find function within an array formula to check a column > to > locate evey occurence of a string and subsequently sum the corresponding > numbers in a different column From: Eduardo on 24 Feb 2010 12:20 Hi, I assume you look for letter a so try, enter formula as an array Ctrl + Shift + Enter , it will put {} at the beginning and at the end =SUM(IF(A8:A11="a",B8:B11)) "BG Mark" wrote: > How can I use the Find function within an array formula to check a column to > locate evey occurence of a string and subsequently sum the corresponding > numbers in a different column From: Gary''s Student on 24 Feb 2010 12:24 Say we are searching for "happiness" in column A and want to sum the corresponding values in column B: =SUMPRODUCT(--(LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1:A100,"happiness",""))<>LEN(A1:A100))*(B1:B100)) so: happiness is good 1 happiness is over-rated 13 sadness should be avoided 37 will return a 14 -- Gary''s Student - gsnu201001 "BG Mark" wrote: > How can I use the Find function within an array formula to check a column to > locate evey occurence of a string and subsequently sum the corresponding > numbers in a different column  |  Next  |  Last Pages: 1 2 Prev: Find cell value within tableNext: Excel Problem
