    The following VBA code also can help you consolidate duplicate rows in the worksheet, but at the same time, the original data will be destroyed, you need to backup a copy of the data.

    1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys, then it opens the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

    2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.

    VBA code: Combine duplicate rows and sum the values

    Sub CombineRows()
    'Update 20130829
    Dim WorkRng As Range
    Dim Dic As Variant
    Dim arr As Variant
    On Error Resume Next
    xTitleId = "KutoolsforExcel"
    Set WorkRng = Application.Selection
    Set WorkRng = Application.InputBox("Range", xTitleId, WorkRng.Address, Type:=8)
    Set Dic = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
    arr = WorkRng.Value
    For i = 1 To UBound(arr, 1)
        Dic(arr(i, 1)) = Dic(arr(i, 1)) + arr(i, 2)
    Next
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    WorkRng.ClearContents
    WorkRng.Range("A1").Resize(Dic.Count, 1) = Application.WorksheetFunction.Transpose(Dic.keys)
    WorkRng.Range("B1").Resize(Dic.Count, 1) = Application.WorksheetFunction.Transpose(Dic.items)
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    End Sub
    

    3. Then press F5 key to run this code, and you need to select the range that you want to consolidate in the popped out prompt box. See screenshot:

    4. And then click OK, the duplicate rows have been combined and the values are added up.

    Note: If you want to use this code, you’d better make a copy of the file to avoid destroying the data, and this code is only applied to two columns.
