we have three salesman, each with their name listed down column "V".
we also have a column for retail$ which lists the total value of an order
(each order has it's own separate row).
How do I setup a running tally in another worksheet to look in column "V"
and detect who's name is there and then have it automatically tally the
retail$ from that row under that person's name ?
Could it be a job for conditional formatting or an if then statement ?
Thanks in advance :)
