# excel – Vlookup and sum one cell containing comma separated values

Questions:

I have a table containing farm fields and acres contained in each field. The fields are owned jointly and split in percentages.

Field Splits Table:

Currently, I create a new row for each field and use a sumif for the acres contained in each field and then calculate what is owed by each individual for each field using another vlookup.

``````SUMIF(\$A\$3:\$A\$15,D19,\$B\$3:\$B\$15)
VLOOKUP(D19,\$A\$3:\$F\$15,4,FALSE)*F19 - to calculate BD Share (\$)
VLOOKUP(D19,\$A\$3:\$F\$15,6,FALSE)*F19 - to calculate CK Share (\$)
``````

Invoice Splits Table:

I’ve found a VBA code to allow a user to select multiple values in a drop down list so that I could select multiple fields pertaining to a particular invoice and display them in one cell as a comma separated list. My question is whether I can sum the result of vlookup referencing multiple values in a comma separated list to calculate the appropriate invoice splits?

I’ve created a mock-up of what I’m trying to achieve based on the values shown in the Invoice Splits Table image. Is this even possible?

Invoice Splits Calculator Example:

Use this array formula:

``````=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(\$A\$3:\$A\$15,,TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(D19,",",REPT(" ",99)),(ROW(\$A\$1:INDEX(\$A:\$A,LEN(D19)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(D19,",",""))+1))-1)*99+1,99)),\$B\$3:\$B\$15))
``````

Being an array formula it needs to be confirmed with Ctrl-Shift-Enter instead of Enter when Exiting Edit mode.

for the VLOOKUP Just change the Sum column in the SUMIF:

``````=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(\$A\$3:\$A\$15,,TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(D19,",",REPT(" ",99)),(ROW(\$A\$1:INDEX(\$A:\$A,LEN(D19)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(D19,",",""))+1))-1)*99+1,99)),\$D\$3:\$D\$15)) * F19
``````

And

``````=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(\$A\$3:\$A\$15,,TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(D19,",",REPT(" ",99)),(ROW(\$A\$1:INDEX(\$A:\$A,LEN(D19)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(D19,",",""))+1))-1)*99+1,99)),\$F\$3:\$F\$15)) * F19
``````
