In column A, I have text, in column B I have a value... So for example, column A might say "Diesel, Tools, or Materials" Lets just say it says "X" And colums B has the amount. I want to count the sum of the values in coloumn B, IF the corosponding row A has "X"

If you want to count then use something like...
 Code: =COUNTIF(\$A\$1:\$A\$100;"X")

If you want to sum then it would be something like...
 Code: =SUMIF(\$A\$1:\$A\$500;"X";\$B\$1:\$B\$500)

 Posted: Thu Mar 29, 2012 9:48 am    Post subject: Agree with Mueller... Pivot tables might be the way to go on this one especially if you want to further analyze the data: I just did something very similar myself a couple of days back. It's relatively easy to export data from Base to Calc. If you need additional help let us know and we can provide additional step by step procedures. Cheers.
