I have a table that looks like this:

enter image description here

In cell F2 I would like to have the sum of all values in column B where the value in the cell next to it (C column) is equal to "Niels".

How could I do this? (I'm a beginner with Excel)


You can do this with SUMIF():


You can also use the data in E directly in the formula so you do not need to retype the formula for each, in E2 put just Niels


Then you can copy down.

  • They would have to edit the E column to exactly match their lookup string. – HackSlash Jan 2 '18 at 17:58
  • @HackSlash Hence the in E2 put just Niels. – Scott Craner Jan 2 '18 at 18:05
