    sum by searching up based on a different column

    I want sum based on key t in total column. The logic is as shown in the figure

    The Total column should sum the data by searching up the t in key column

    How do we achieve this in the Total field?

    In D3 =IF(B3="t",SUM($C$3:C3),"")
    In D4 =IF(B4="t",SUM($C$3:C4)-SUM($D$3:D3),"") and pull down as needed

    Re: sum by searching up based on a different column

    As I preferred a structured formula for the table, I modified the key flag to a number instead of t and used the formula in Cell D3
    IF(B4<>"", SUM(C3:INDEX(C:C, MATCH(1E+99, B$1:B3))), "")

    However, I am not getting the total when there are multiple cells to be added. Total should appear corresponding to the cell where 1 is present in the key. Please help tweak the code?
