    Exclamation Data summarizing!?

    I use a software that generates reports in excel(These reports fill up Columns ("A:DG"). I have to clean up the reports every month and submit them. I am trying to make this process quicker.

    So I created a application that when activated removes all unwanted columns and sorts the corrects columns by either a Part number or a vendor (via userforum).

    I want to be able to summarize the information by the part number.

    So in Column ("A") I have a many of the same part number and in Column( "B") I have the quantity of that part number. Looks like this

    Part Number---------Quantity
    AAA123--------------------10
    AAA123--------------------25
    AAA123--------------------40
    AAA123--------------------30
    AAA123--------------------20
    AAA123--------------------75
    BBB345--------------------10
    BBB345--------------------25
    BBB345--------------------40
    BBB345--------------------30
    BBB345--------------------20
    BBB345--------------------75


    I want it to look like this:

    AAA123--------------------200
    BBB345--------------------200



    The generated report can have anywhere from 1-10,000 parts... Any help??

    I suspect a Pivot Table is the simplest solution.

    A pivot table...

    I donít mean to be a bother, but I donít know what that is. Would you mind educating me?

    Re: Data summarizing!?

    See the attached example.

    In Excel 2007:
    select any cell in the data area
    select in the Insert tab/ribbon
    select the Pivot Table icon ... on the very left
    confirm the range and decide where you want the pivot table
    (in this case, I put it on the same sheet - cell Sheet1!$E$3
    Put Part Number in Row labels and Quantity in Values
    Close the dialogue box (x in the top right corner)

    Done
