# Help with order sheet

Hi, I’m hoping someone can help me. I’m trying to set up an order sheet on excel where I can keep a track of customer orders, names and addresses and then have a total number of items ordered at the bottom. So I want to have in the first column the customers name, second column their address, third column their order (which could be multiples of different orders) and then fourth column a total price for that customer.
I’m trying to work out a way to get a total at the bottom of how many of each item has been ordered across all customers. So for example, customer A orders white choc blondie, biscoff blondie, customer B orders raspberry brownie, customer C orders white choc blondie, raspberry brownie. I want to find a way for excel to show me how many white choc blondies are ordered, how many raspberry brownies are ordered etc. I hope this makes sense and someone can help me!!
Oh, and I also want to add a value to each item, so to add the price to each of the items to then get a total price in the final column. If anyone knows how to do this it would be greatly appreciated
Thank you

Hannah,

It is not good design practice to combine customer details and orders into one table - it is better to have a customer table and an orders table. I have done a simple design to show a customer table and an orders table. Associated with the order table are two 'pivot tables' - the pivot tables allow you to present the data in may different ways. I have shown one by customer  and one by order. These are just examples but there are many different options.

I hope this helps!
