    Losing formula integrity after using the sort and filter function

    Hi

    I have a two tables.

    TABLE ONE is a basic Gannt chart with employee name, milestones and timelines.

    TABLE TWO is a summary and has the employee name and hours taken from TABLE ONE.

    When I action the 'Sort & Filter' function any totals in Table Two does not connect to the correct employee name.

    How do I adjust the formula to properly record the correct hours associated with the employee name after the sort function.

    Ideally I want TABLE TWO to track the employee hours automatically whenever the columns are sorted.

    WOW! That was super fast! Thank you Fluff13

    It partially works. Am I doing something wrong? It doesn't seem to pick up one column - KALEY. Updated Sheet uploaded.

    Both cells with Kayley in table 1 have a space after them. Remove it & it should work.
