Excel Sum that excludes duplicates

microsoft-excel-2007worksheet-function

I have data in the following format:

Id    Value
------------
1     20
2     40
3     20
3     20
4     50

I want to sum the value column while excluding duplicates from the id column. In this case, I should end up with a total of 130. Can anyone help?

You can create a new column with duplicates removed; SUM() the new column.

Use the COUNTIF() function to reduce values for duplicate ID's to 0 in the new column like this:

=IF(COUNTIF($A$1:A1,A1)=1,B1,"")

(example above assumes ID's are stored in column A, and their values are stored in column B)
