    How can I add up lookups? Finding days in a week of a month

    I have a table that has columns of days, 1-31 and another column with the day
    of the week, Mon-Sun and then various columns of numbers for each day of the
    month.

    I want to be able to a get sum of all the numbers for each day of the week.
    I am using lookup but this is only returning the last incidence and I need
    all the numbers added together. Example, I need all widgets sold on Saturday
    for the month.

    TIA

    An easy way to summarize data in a table is to use a pivot table. There
    are instructions in Excel's Help, and here:

    http://www.contextures.com/xlPivot01.html

    In the pivot table, put Day in the row area, and the number columns in
    the Data area.

    If your days are in column B and he amounts you want to sum in column C

    =SUMIF(b:b,"Sat",c:c)
