How to match data + add calcul


Hey Community ! :)


Today i need your help please, i don't know how to do to process my data..


I have this kind of data (datatomatch.xlsx) to report in a kind of specific struture


This is the structure (balancesheet.xlsx) 


I want to match the data from datatomatch.xlsx to balancesheet.xlsx, i want to report the amount correponding to the right number account in the column December 2017.

For example, in the account 611300, i want to repot the sum of all account starting with 6113 in my datatomatch.xlsx because there are differents account starting with 6113.

For example , in the account 102000, i want to report the value of the account starting with 102 inside datatomatch.xlsx,... Etc

As you can see, in the balancesheet.xlsx file, i want to add the sum result of all the account in a section (For example=> Capital who is the add of  account starting with 101 + 1041 + 1042 + 105 + 106 )

Hello @DanM


Thank's for your message, of course i understand ...


So i have differents issues to build my workflow because i don't know what's the best solution to process my data, for the moment i'm building my workflow with formula tool like:

IF StartsWith([ACCOUNT], "101") then LEFT([ACCOUNT], 3)+ "000" else
IF StartsWith([ACCOUNT], "115") then LEFT([ACCOUNT], 3)+ "000" else
IF StartsWith([ACCOUNT], "141") then LEFT([ACCOUNT], 3)+ "000" else



To have the same number than balancesheet.xlsx and i will try with join tool.. to report amount from datatomatch.xlsx to balancesheet.xlsx..
