    Summing distinct rows in same cell

    Sorry for the bad title I'm not sure hte best way to sum up this issue.

    Fruit Price Total
    Apples 0.69 40
    Bananas 0.34 38
    Lemons 0.55 15
    Oranges 0.25 25
    Apples 0.5 10
    Pears 0.59 40
    Almonds 2.8 10
    Cashews 3.55 16
    Peanuts 1.25 20
    Walnuts 1.75 12
    Apples 0.5 5

    Given the data above I'm trying to sum the totals for only the Apple rows. So basically I need to search the Fruit column find the rows that have "Apples" and then sum their corresponding Totals, giving me 55. I've been playing with this for hours with Lookups and Indexes but am not really getting anywhere. Also, I cannot use any VBA as the client will not run any files with Macros. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Theres a few ways

    Here's a few of them

    1) You could use a pivot table

    2) =SUMPRODUCT(--(A2:A12="apples")*(C2:C12))

    3) =SUMIF(A2:A12,"Apples",C2:C12)
