Hi 
My data has 7 million observations and 29 variables. About 10 of the variables are string, and I am trying to get some patterns of the numerical values which are related to the strings. To clarify, 

String                    Value
AB1234                 25
CDE789                 44
F9999                    126
CDE789                 10
AB1234                 3
F9999                    100

I would like to get output that looks like the sum of values, per string:
AB1234 28
CDE789 54
F9999 226

Some strings are just numbers, some are just letters, and some are a combination. 
Can anyone assist?
Thanks!
Greg
