    Ensure you describe your problem clearly, I have little time available to solve these problems and do not appreciate numerous changes to them.

    Hi mahalek,

    I don't see where your summary information checks with the second sheet data.

    I think this problem is really a Pivot Table type of problem. See what I've done with your data on the attached. Can a Pivot Table do what you are looking for?

    I believe it can. Thank you. I can also run averages off of that table. I can absolutely use it in this case. I am however still interested if there is a formula that can pull out that data.

    This is a formula based solution that uses a helper column (All Cases column M).
    Here is the array formula* pasted in F7 and dragged down to F16:

    The "Merge and Center" for rows 18 and 30 will have to be removed. Then copy cell F7 into cells F18 and F30 and dragged to F28 and F40 respectively. You'll need to use the format painter to reformat your fill color afterwards. Here is a copy of your file with the formula and aforementioned changes applied:

    Array formulas are activated with the keystrokes Ctrl+Shift+Enter.
    Let me know if you have any questions.
