    Need to filter results, add results and group the results in Excel 2007

    Hello All,

    First time poster. I have a large Excel Spreadsheet that has 32 columns and over 50,000 lines of data. Column U has a 4 digit code. There are over 100 different codes in column U. I want Excel to create a new worksheet where each code is only listed once but the contents are summated. Might be easier to show an example.

    Here is how the data appears now:

    Column U Column X

    AAAA $10
    AAAA $20
    AAAA $50
    AAAA $10
    AAAA $100
    BBBB $20
    BBBB $10
    BBBB $50
    CCCC $80
    CCCC $90

    Here is the format I want excel to create:

    AAAA $190
    BBBB $80
    CCCC $170

    Thanks, Bill

    Have a look at Pivot Tables.. that is what they are designed to do.

    http://peltiertech.com/Excel/Pivots/pivottables.htm

    In 2007, Pivot table is found in Insert tab.

    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    Thanks. That helped.

    Follow up question. What if I have multiple columns of data such as:

    AAAA $10 $20
    AAAA $20 $50
    AAAA $50 $70
    AAAA $10 $20
    AAAA $100 $50
    BBBB $20 $10
    BBBB $10 $60
    BBBB $50 $70
    CCCC $80 $10
    CCCC $90 $20

    Still sorting by the alpha code (AAAA) but there are 2, 3 or 4 columns of data that need to be summed?

    Drag each column to the data area separately...

    The sums for each column will appear one above the other

    If you want them next to each other, then grap the Data (grey box) and drag it over to next column.
