Alternatives to Subtotal function in excel

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment


I have 36,892 records that I need to subtotal. When I use the subtotal function in excel it can’t cope with the amount of data and crashes.

I have 36,000 rows of data and I need to add the data in column d for every change in column a. The number of duplicate records in column a changes anywhere from 1 to 10.

I have tried breaking it into smaller chunks of data, but it only seems to cope with about 5,000 which is going to take forever.

Is there another alternative I can use?

How to&Answers:

In an unused column to the right put this formula in the second row and double-click the fill handle.

if(a2<>a3, sumifs(d:d, a:a, a2), text(,))
