##### Summary
In Microsoft Excel 2000, if you have a column of categories and a column of values, you can calculate a running category total in a third column.
If you have a column of categories and a column of values, you can create a running category total, as in the following example:
`   Categories      Values   Running category total   -----------------------------------------------   1               \$4.00                     \$4.00   2               \$8.00                     \$8.00   1               \$5.00                     \$9.00   2               \$7.00                    \$15.00   1               \$5.00                    \$14.00   3               \$4.00                     \$4.00   4               \$3.00                     \$3.00   2               \$5.00                    \$20.00   1               \$7.00                    \$21.00   1               \$7.00                    \$28.00   4               \$5.00                     \$8.00   3               \$5.00                     \$9.00   2               \$5.00                    \$25.00   2               \$6.00                    \$31.00   3               \$5.00                    \$14.00   4               \$6.00                    \$14.00   4               \$7.00                    \$21.00   3               \$4.00                    \$18.00   2               \$6.00                    \$37.00   2               \$7.00                    \$44.00   1               \$6.00                    \$34.00   1               \$6.00                    \$40.00   1               \$4.00                    \$44.00   1               \$6.00                    \$50.00   4               \$5.00                    \$26.00   4               \$5.00                    \$31.00   2               \$6.00                    \$50.00   1               \$6.00                    \$56.00   2               \$3.00                    \$53.00				`
Assuming that the category column is column A, the values column iscolumn B, and the headings are in row 1, the running category totalformula at the top row is:
=SUMIF(INDIRECT("A2:A"&ROW()),"="&A2,INDIRECT("B2:B"&ROW()))
Copy the formula for all rows used.
