I have the following table:

I want to compare the values of Column A elements against its mapped equivalent in Column D. See the mapping table in `Range I:J`

The first one is easy, in Column D, `211010`

has a value of 9,570 so does its mapped equivalent (`B1001)`

in column A, so difference is zero.

However, the next element `222010`

is mapped to two elements `B30`

and `B3030`

What I want is a formula in column Zthat adds up values of elements in column D; for example `222010`

which is -3,041 and compares it to the sum of its mapped equivalent in column A (B30 & B3030) which is (-6327+3286) also 3,041 and returns the difference which may be zero or otherwise.

I tried using combining SUMIF/+IndexMatch/VLOOKUP but I couldn’t get it to work for me.

Any help will be appreciated.

You can get the first part with a simple `SUMIF`

, i.e.

`=SUMIF(D$2:D$17,D2,E$2:E$17)`

and then the latter with this “array formula”

`=SUM(IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(A$2:A$17,IF(I$2:I$17=D2,H$2:H$17),0)),B$2:B$17))`

confirmed with `CTRL`+`SHIFT`+`ENTER`

You can simply subtract one from the other for your comparison
