# excel – How to identify unique value instances and find the sum

Questions:

This question builds on my previous post regarding how to identify and output multiple instances of a found value. My previous post:
Array to lookup multiple columns and take another columns information

This question is slightly different, where what if I wanted to sum the values found in an array. I have presented an example below. The Table I2:J4 is the reference table which assigns a value to each Plant #. Cells B3:F9 are already filled in and are used to find the sum of one count of each instance in the row. Column A will show the solution of each row. The formula should allow the column to be populated automatically.

For example I have filled in the answer for the first three rows of Column A. In Row 3, we see that there is a Plant 1002B1, and 1003B1 so the answer is 200+300. We neglect any additional instances found of a Plant #. For example row 4 and 5 both have a sum of 100, regardless of how many instances of the same plant are found.

I found myself trying to use an Index but this would return True/False values and because of this you can’t add the sum of the value. Unless you use the True/False to identify the location of the value in the reference table and use that to find that the sum, which I dont how to do.

``````=SUM(IF(B2:F2<>"",IF(MATCH(B2:F2,B2:F2,0)=COLUMN(B2:F2)-MIN(COLUMN(B2:F2))+1,SUMIFS(J:J,I:I,B2:F2))))
``````=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIFS(J:J,I:I,UNIQUE(TRANSPOSE(B2:F2))))
