I am trying to make it easier to get expense totals by category. I have created a spreadsheet that has text (expense categories -- meals, transportation, airfare, etc.) in one column and expenses in another. I want to be able to create a totals for each category on another part of the page. In other words, I want to take all the values in column C that correspond with "meals" in column B and total them (and again for each expense category). I can't figure out how to do that. Any thoughts?
