I'm trying to create a sheet to maintain a small inventory of servers.
I created a segment where each type of component will be listed at the top.
Below it is a series of copy-pasted chunks which will contain references to components above and their count in that server.
I now want to add another column to the first segment where total count will be listed per component.
Here's an example:
A B C 0 Count 1 Motherboards MOBO1 ? 2 MOBO2 ? 3 CPUs CPU1 ? 4 CPU2 ? ... 15 16 Server1 17 Motherboard refToB1 1 18 CPU refToB4 2 19 ... 28 Server2 29 Motherboard refToB2 1 30 CPU refToB4 1
I now need to fill cells C1:C4 so that they show how many of those components are used in total. in this example, that would be C1=1, C2=1, C3=0 and C4=3.
The formula would be something like this, in human form:
Sum all the cells in C column, but only sum the cells if the value in the cell to their left is the same as the value in the cell to the left of the current cell.
I'm trying to achieve this using google spreadsheets.
I think I could do it all with IFSUM, but I don't know how or can I at all create a condition that is relative to the cell being tested.
