How do i get count of values against specific names

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

I have three columns . What i need is a formula to get details - If range responsible person is selected, what is the sum of target  for each person seperately and in a similar way on the actual column what is the sum of actual by each person. The result i am look for should look like the one below. 

responsible person       Target   Actual

Peter                               1           0

Peter                                2           1

Ben                                  1           1

Kylie                                  1         0

Sam                                  1          0

Kylie                                  3          0



Peter                                 3           1

Ben                                    1           1

Kylie                                   4           0

Sam                                   1           0

    Hi Loren,

    Try this.

    The below formula is for the Target but can easily be changed to SUM the Actual as well. Change the row numbers and column names to your own. I would recommend using Parent/Children for the set up if possible instead because it will probably make it easier to keep current. 

    =SUMIF([Responsible Person]8:[Responsible Person]13; [Responsible Person]@row; Target8:Target13)    

    The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.  

    =SUMIF([Responsible Person]8:[Responsible Person]13, [Responsible Person]@row, Target8:Target13)

    Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did it work?

    Have a fantastic week!
