    Sum value from differents fields of a list

    Hi! I am creating an excel chart as a calendar to impute the time I spend on each project in each day (in this example the projects are AAAA, BBBB, CCCC, although there are really many more cases due to sub-tasks, etc.).

    For each day I can choose in each row by means of a drop-down menu the project or task that I have done and then I put the time dedicated.

    The list of projects and tasks that the drop-down list contains is on a different sheet.

    What I would like to do next is to have the total sum of the time dedicated to each project in the month, in the separated sheet where I have the list of projects.

    The way I've tried it is through the function: SUM.YES but I'm left with a very long function so I'd like to ask if there's an easier way to do it.

    If each task always takes the same amount of time, try a countif() for each item, then use vlookup to find it's time...multiply the count by the time
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Yes, I get that each type of task takes different times, but the same task takes the same time, yes?

    upload a small (clean) sample workbook (not a pic) of what you are working with, and what your expected outcome would look like.
