Resolved Question:

I have a large spreadsheet using columns A through BI. In column M I have addresses of which there are duplicates. In columns AA through AS are billing amounts. The remaining cells are important to keep but not relative to this need.

I would like to combine the rows containing the same address so I am only left with the address one time. and sum the billing columns.

How can I do this?

Thank you for your question, my name is Richard.

you would need to hide the Duplicates, but would a Sumif work for you inn a totals Table?

EG: sumif(Range of Criteria,Criteria eg: Company, amount to Sum)

this would give a Sum of all the Duplicates.

Please let me know if that is what you require?

There is no message from your Rolina, this is the first response I have had.

I think something went wrong? Can you repeat your response please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


Something is wrong I just typed a piece and it is not here either.


 


I can not be sum if to work. I just tried the subtotal function which gets me a little closer. I highlighted column M through AS and clicked on subtotal. I selected column M for subtotaling at each change and clicked each of the billing columns to subtotal. This still leaves me with data to clean up but does maybe half of the steps

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, Sumif would work from what you described.

What is the remaining half to do?

Are you still having a problem replying to me Rolina?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


My reply only works some of the time. I need the spreadsheet to show only one line of each address with the sub total amounts of the billing.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, but then a Grouping in a Pivot table is the easiest way Rolina,

What stops you from doing this?

the pivot table was very combersome with all of the other columns and I could not quite get it the way I needed it. You have spent enough time on this. I'll just continue to clean them up manually.
