Not sure if i would get any answer from here. I have a column number and title text. The data would look like this:

Title  Paid
Jacob  200
Patrick 100
Jacob   100
Patrick 300

What i would like to get is

Jacob: 300
Patrick 400

I was thinking of using a workflow and write the data to another list

Thanks in Advance if anyone has an idea

    Where do you need this sum? In a custom web part or in a list view or others. also update the SharePoint version. – Atish Dipongkor - MVP Nov 30 '15 at 6:37
  • 2010/2013 No code: Set your view to Group By Title and Sum the Paid Column

  • 2013 CSR (Client Side Rendering) code: UseOnPreRender to loop through the items

  • 2010/2013 Calculated Column: Sum Calculated Column (SP 2013)

(Works in Group View)

Client Side Rendering

As DannyEngelman mentioned, you can use CSR for SharePoint 2013. Following snippet may help. I have tested it in OnPreRender

var newValues = [];

ctx.ListData.Row.forEach(function(item) {
    var isDuplicate = newValues.filter(v => v.Title == item.Title);
    if (isDuplicate.length == 0) {
        var hasSameTitle = ctx.ListData.Row.filter(v => v.Title == item.Title);
        var itemsSum = hasSameTitle.reduce((a, b) => parseFloat(a["Paid."]) + parseFloat(b["Paid."]));
        item["Paid"] = itemsSum;

ctx.ListData.Row = newValues;

enter image description here

PS: Not sure IE has support for Arrow functions yet. If it does not have, then you can use callback.
